Kevin Azzopardi: Getting Acquainted for Autumn/Winter 2016

Kevin Azzopardi is an Oslo-based menswear designer with an unorthodox and conceptual take on the manufacturing process of fashion.

Having passed through London, Azzopardi moved to Oslo in 2008 to pursue collaborative projects before recently setting up his eponymous label.

Born and bred in Melbourne, Australia, the 29 year old creative started his career studying theatre design at NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art), which led to Azzopardi art directing music videos and working as a costume designer on short films.

In 2007 he art directed the clip for Paul Kelly’s ‘God Told Me To,’ which then went on to win ‘Best Music Film Clip’ at the prestigious Inside Film Awards.

Moving his focus on to clothes, Azzopardi earned his Bachelor Degree in fashion design from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, where he—in 2007—won the Object’s Award for Creative Innovation for his graduate collection of elegant menswear and elaborate printing techniques.
