Michael Halpern is London-based designer whose eponymous brand Halpern is synonymous with uncashed glamour, reimagined embellishment and sense of hyper-feminity with a nod to classical couture.

He began his career in his hometown of New York, after graduating with his BA from the Parsons School of Design he worked leading design teams for two years in the city. Michael then embarked on a journey to grow his personal vision, joining the Masters programme at Central Saint Martins in London, where he continued to refine the aesthetic that endures throughout his collections today. His celebrated MA collection gained much attention, including that of Versace, and after graduation, Michael was hired to consult on the couture collection, Atelier Versace. It was during his time at the Fashion House that he developed his eponymous brand, Halpern.

Debuting during the Autumn/Winter 2017 shows at London Fashion Week, the critically acclaimed presentation was immediately bought by top International retailers and is currently stocked in over 30 of the top retailers globally.
