"Over the past 20 years, my role as creative director has been, and continues to be, to push the perception of shearling and leather within fashion, crafting a new sensitivity and awareness towards luxury outerwear and accessory design. I strive to explore and develop new and exciting concepts where my focus is to lead the way in luxury design, not follow" (Karl Donoghue).
