Multi-disciplinary designer Alexandru Adam initially trained as an artist, gaining a place on the prestigious Kultur Kontakt artists in residence programme in Vienna, Austria, as a teenager. After graduating with a BA in Product Design from Central Saint Martins in 2005, Adam pursued an MA in Fashion at the Royal College of Art, specialising in accessories. Amongst his many accolades, he took first prize in the Manolo Blahnik Design Award in 2009 and was the joint winner of the IFF Thierry Mugler award in 2009. After working for Thierry Mugler in Paris being responsible for designing all their accessories as well as working on clothing and perfumes projects, Adam returned to London to launch his own accessories label. With commercial experience across a broad spectrum of design media, including fashion design, product design, graphic design and accessories design, Adam brings a holistic understanding of the design process to his work, which is imbued with an unusual rigour, obsession for detail and subtlety.
