Irish Designer Paul Seville trained in Fashion and Tailoring at the London College of Fashion. On graduating he set up his studio and began to create handmade leather corsets and bustiers for London shops and one-off commissions for private clients. Collaborations with interior designers followed and Seville branched out into hand carved leather furniture commissioned by London boutiques. Further interest was shown by a number of Fashion Houses which led to the production of one-off showpieces for the catwalk as well as show accessories, initially for Karl Lagerfeld and Vivienne Westwood and now including Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Exte, Hussein Chalayan, Rochas, Romeo Gigli & Victoria’s Secret amongst many others. He continues each season to collaborate with different designers on showpieces & accessories for the catwalk.
Due to high demand for his hand-made Leather Accessories & Jewellery, Autumn’02 saw the launch of his own Spring/Summer 2003 range, successfully shown at Premiere Classe, Paris since October’02. He exhibited during London Fashion Week in February 2003 having won New Generation sponsorship and continues to showcase his collections seasonally. Since 2002 & following on from the success of his fashion ranges, Seville has been designing & producing a highly successful and exclusive Collection of Erotic Luxury for Coco de Mer, London & USA. Due to high demand for these designs, the product line for his fashion range has extended to include his own “ Boudoir “ collection of body jewellery & intimate accessories.
Paul Seville’s main inspiration for his designs is his love of corsetry & traditional leather craftsmanship. He has combined these with his “brand exclusive” techniques developed for texturing & dyeing the skins to create contemporary accessories that range from the luxurious & provocative fashion collection to the visionary design of his boudoir accessories.
Paul Seville’s Range is regularly featured in U.K. & International Press & is currently available from a number of leading U.K. & International stockists. His much sought after Signature Style bubble Corset Belts are worn by an increasing number of celebrities & feature regularly in Music Videos & TV.
