Antoni Burakowski and Alison Roberts, have mentioned their ideal client: “An individual who can’t believe their luck in finding a fantastic, inspirational piece of Antoni & Alison clothing to either own or just to look at.”
Twenty-five years is a long time in fashion. Back in 1987, we jacked our bodies and lived on a prayer. It was also 25 years ago that Antoni Burakowski and Alison Roberts graduated from Central Saint Martins and founded their own label. Their first offering was a collection of “Be Happy” T-shirts, the cutesy slogans on which swiftly catapulted them to the forefront of youth culture and street cool.
“This time has been like an incredible apprenticeship,” they state. “We have loved being ‘Antoni & Alison’; we have loved being an independent label. We design from scratch each season, experimenting with the need to find and have ‘good ideas’, and sometimes using our ‘bad’ ideas.”
