Luke 1977 Jumpers and Zip Tops
Luke Roper was born in Walsall, and was the son of a talented wedding dressmaker. At the age of twelve he was already adept at using a sewing machine, and he soon became interested in the whole process behind producing garments. At fifteen he was making shirts for his friends. After leaving school Luke Roper enrolled in a fashion and textles course at his local Walsall College, which led in 1997 to a place at Central Saint Martins College of Fashion in London where Luke began a 3-year specialist menswear design degree. During the 3 years that he was doing his degree he got more involved in traditional tailoring techniques which inspired him to begin making suits. Having continued making clothes for his friends, there was now a real following for his creations from a variety of people. After his graduation Luke Roper took the position of junior designer with a major brand. The idea was that he would develop his skills and have a deeper understanding of the clothing industry. In May 2001, after only 6 months he joined forces with his best friends Simon & Deborah Poole and the ‘Luke’ label was created. The Luke Roper collection consists of jeans, jackets, tee shirts, knitwear, and shirts.
