About Mac Collins
Graduating with a degree from Northumbria University last year, Mac Collins is being touted as one of Britain’s most exciting new designers. Motivated by his own mixed European and Caribbean heritage, Collins is recognised for creating handcrafted designs imbued with personal, cultural stories. Previously his work has touched on topics including the African diaspora and the slave trade.
