Marios Schwab collections are synonymous with sophisticated and innovative design. His work combines his
studies of classical tailoring and technical construction with an appreciation of elegant beauty and his
understanding of the feminine form.
The Greco-Austrian designer began his studies at prestigious schools in Europe, before completing his MA in
Womenswear at London’s Central Saint Martins in 2002. After debuting at London Fashion Week in 2006, he
won ‘New Designer of the Year’ at the British Fashion Awards followed by the Swiss Textile Award in 2007.
Delivering a design aesthetic that embraces cutting-edge technological advancement while remaining steeped in
respect for traditional craftsmanship, his directional take on eveningwear, timeless ready-to-wear, and expertly
detailed lingerie and swimwear has allowed Schwab to communicate his diverse design personality throughout
the varied appointments and collaborations of his career.
His evolution has included positions as Creative Director of iconic American label Halston in what Vogue
described as a “match made in heaven”, Head Designer at the French luxury fashion house Maison Martin
Margiela and design partnerships in jewellery, eyewear, shoes and lingerie as well as launching the swimwear
and contemporary resort wear label ‘On the Island’ in 2016.
Most recently, in 2020 Schwab was announced as the Creative Director of the Greek fashion brand Zeus +
Δione. Drawing inspiration from their shared Greek heritage he is creating luxury modern collections with a focus
on artisanal techniques and craftsmanship.
