Antony Price

Fashion Designer

Antony Price is a British fashion designer famous for his intrinsic connections to the music world. He has collaborated with a number of performers, including David Bowie, Steve Strange and Duran Duran, but is best known for his close working relationship with Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music, whose respective 'looks' were defined by Price's designs. He has been credited as the chief illusionist of what he dubbed 'the Roxy Machine' and contributed to all eight album covers. 

Antony Price studied at Bradford School of Art and then at the Royal College of Art, graduating with a distinction in 1968 and was immediately employed as menswear designer for the new fashion cult label, Stirling Cooper (The Rolling Stones were his first customers, with Jagger wearing his button trousers on the infamous Gimme Shelter tour).  In the late sixties and early seventies, Price was designer not only for Stirling Cooper but also Che Guevara (1969 – 1974), moving on to Plaza in London and launching his own label in 1979.

Price is one of the first designers to push the boundaries of male display in his clothes and styling, an inspired cutter and tailor, constantly inventive, the creator of the ‘H’ and ‘bridge’ crutch pants which made Tom of Finland fantasy a sartorial reality for two generations of young men. His first show was in London’s Autumn/Winter 1980 collections, filmed by John Maybury with models Jerry Hall and Marie Helvin as vampish icons of sexual glamour - a look he had honed working with Kari-Anne, Amanda Lear and Gala Mitchell in the early 1970s.  

Price received the 'Glamour' award from the British Fashion Council for 1990, and was profiled by Sarah Mower in the March issue of British Vogue the same year. In 1998, Antony Price collaborated with milliner Philip Treacy on clothing for his show at London Fashion Week, and continued to collaborate on subsequent Treacy shows in London and Paris. He was nominated for the British Fashion Council's 'Red Carpet Designer' award at the 2006 British Fashion Awards.

In 2008 Price created the first of three capsule menswear collections for Topman. He also designed a range of shirts with Daphne Guinness, which retailed at Dover Street Market.
