James Bosley is a consultant textile and graphic designer working with luxury fashion brands across menswear, womenswear, accessories and installation graphics.

He has a lustrous portfolio of clients in high fashion including Christian Dior, Savage x Fenty, Maison Martin Margiela, Alexander McQueen, Kenzo, John Galliano, Opening Ceremony, Victoria Beckham and Emilio Pucci.

When James is not busy sharing his wealth of knowledge on regular visits to Central St Martins as a BA textiles lecturer, he collaborates with colleagues on independent British brands such as Edward Crutchley, Vyner Articles, Wildkind Kids – here he gets involved in art direction and concept research at the very start of a collection.

His background saw him create handmade fabrics for runway and editorial, and he still advises on the selection process of fabrics and technical aspects on shows and shoots to this day. And, while championing an influx of hot new East London designers, he has helped several of them overcome technical obstacles in order to obtain a visual aesthetic usually only found in Italy. An earlier role saw him manage the Brixton studio of London Printworks Trust, and it was here that he established himself among a lot of great artists and designers.

Having made the jump from the north west to south London, when he was just 18 – he’s been based in south London almost half his life now. And as Peckham is where he met his husband, it has a special place in his heart.
