Born in France with a Portuguese heritage, Steven Passaro is a menswear designer based in London. At the age of 19, he entered the set and interior design course of Duperré where he developed his ability and taste for constructions. During his time in Paris, Steven worked for Christian Dior as a VM designer for a year while learning sewing and patternmaking.
In 2016, he moved to London to enter the London College of Fashion where he graduated with a MA in fashion design technology with distinction. His worked was showcased at the Men’s London Fashion week in January 2019 as part of LCFMA19.
Throughout his work Steven always looked for that one thing that is constant, a signature. It took him years to realise that life is about changes, that him, as an individual and designer would grow and evolve constantly. In a world where nothing is constant, growth became his fascination, a territory to conquer and master.
The Ma collection embodies the first explorations focused on the mind and the multiple bodies we possess. Traditional menswear is represented by the suit, often restricting the movements of the body. In the development of this collection, memories and emotions are materialised into pleats and folds that gives our inner life motion from the inside out, and thus allow and prompt movement.
