Overview

I said to her, I said: 'Doris, no! You've got your own, stop trying to nick mine; you're always angling after what's mine. If it's not me Balenciaga hand bag, it's me David Longshaw dress, or me Chanel lipstick (I mean, who shares a lipstick? It's not hygienic!), and if it's not that, it's me Manolo's and more often than not it's me sodding sticky bun or scone!'

Meet Maude the 32cm fabric fashion mouse
Join her in her quest to find a home of her own and in her battle to conquer the fashion world in fashion designer and illustrator David Longshaw's second book in the Maude and Doris series,
'Maude, A fashionable children's tale for grown-ups'

After graduating in 2007 David received a flurry of press attention and nominations for International Awards and had secured a position at Alberta Ferretti before his final graduate collection was even shown. Although very keen to launch his own label he felt it was important to gain more internationally commercial experience, so went on to work for Max Mara.

David is now concentrating on his own label which he launched during February LFW 2010 (when he was selected for the 'Ones To Watch' catwalk show, Fashion Scout and to exhibit with the BFC).

David has been shortlisted for a wealth of awards and was named as one of the 'Designers to Watch 2011' by vogue.com and one of 'The Rising Stars of 2011' by ELLE. He is the winner of the inaugural BFC/ELLE Talent Launch Pad.

With not only a natural talent for fashion, but also for illustration (winner of the Colin Barnes Drawing Prize 2005) he has contributed to a number of publications (including vogue.com, the LFW newspaper ) and uses his illustrations and story writing as a starting point for his collections. His characters include Maude the fabric fashion mouse (made originally by David whilst at St Martin's) described by British Vogue as 'Longshaw's long standing cult creation.'

He has also created 'Francesca & Arthur' a weekly comic strip for Vogue Italia (vogue.it)
And
A number of animations for LOVE magazine.
