Christopher Wicks, the designer and creator of all things English Laundry, was born a child of the sixties in Manchester, England. In his early years, he found solace sketching shirts, shoes and guitars. What began as a pre-teen pastime, however, became a life long career in designing men’s apparel with a twist. Wicks is obsessed with fashion, music and his hometown of Manchester, passions that are evident throughout his unique and distinctive designs. His signature styles are inspired by music of the 60’s and 70’s as well as the music culture of today.
