I for one had never heard of Aitor Throup before today. I even considered not doing this post because he’s not a major name in fashion. Then I thought again and remembered that this is what ASI is about, upcoming talent and who’s the next big name.
Aitor Throup is an Argentinian born, English transplant. He’s worked for Umbro and designed the 2010 World Cup home and away uniforms for England. He directs music videos and he graduated with a MA in Menswear from Royal College of Art after graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University in fashion design. In 2012 he has focused his attention to his namesake brand, Aitor Throup.
As you can see from the video Throup is a multidimensional artist both in his crafts and in his design process. I found him to be very intriguing and can’t wait to see more of his work in the future.
From Throup’s sketches and product shots you can see the meticulous work he puts into all of his pieces.
