This talk is an insight into how drawing plays a part in collaboration and the design process within the groundbreaking fashion duo Antoni & Alison.



Antoni Burakowski is half of the local fashion institution Antoni & Alison. The two of them met when they were both studying at St Martin’s in the early ‘80s, forming a conceptual and playful approach that still applies after over 30 years of collaborating. Antoni’s drawings are direct and quirky, made with markers and biro and often incorporating text. This talk is an insight into how drawing plays a part in collaboration and the design process within this groundbreaking fashion duo. Antoni & Alison are currently working on archiving a second batch of drawings for the V&A’s archive of their work and we are fortunate that Antoni will show us some of this work in progress.

We will be joined by guests from different fields: art, anatomy, fashion, and graphic novels. each of whom is committed to drawing. The format for the Guest Series will be for each guest to give a talk about how drawing relates to their own work and field, then at a later date they will lead a day long drawing workshop based on their practice.


Antoni studied fashion/textiles at St Martin’s School of Art where he met Alison Roberts (who studied painting). After leaving they set up the fashion label Antoni & Alison - a local (and national) treasure. In 2008 they were given M.B.Es for their work in Fashion and Photography. 2012 marked their 25th anniversary.
