Having started out in theatre school, a beginning which has greatly influenced the sense of drama and narrative that his collections create, his career took a change of direction after he won a fashion design competition at the age of 17. This led him to meet and then go onto work for the legendary designer Vivienne Westwood, after which he studied for a degree in fashion design at Central St Martins.
Lee Broom has been described by The Financial Times as “Among the most respected British Talents”.
Lee Broom has won over 30 awards to date including the prestigious British Designer of the Year Award and The Queen’s Award for Enterprise presented by Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace. Presenting his collections each year in Milan, New York and London Design Weeks, he has gained a reputation for creating conceptual dynamic installations which are surreal, experiential and always unexpected. Making design a successful global business Lee Broom’s products are retailed in over 250 stores in 50 countries around the world alongside his own flagship showrooms in London and New York.
Fashion is still a great source of inspiration and The Guardian commented, “Lee Broom is to furniture what Marc Jacobs or Tom Ford are to fashion.”
