Tim Soar – Biography
Tim Soar started out his creative career with the graphics superstar Neville Brody working on the launch of the interiors project POST Design, producing retail and exhibition design in the UK and Europe. Subsequently Tim worked as a graphic designer, initially by himself and then in the partnership STAC, with photographer Andrew Catlin. Much of the work Tim did was with for the music business focusing on producing art for recognisable record sleeves.

He undertook residencies at many well know venues across London and becoming a part of the original Camden set when Britpop first broke.
In 2005 the Tim Soar label was born, and armed with his creative expertise within music, graphics and interiors, fashion opened up a new creative language for Tim to use when conceiving and designing each piece in his collections. Tim Soar knew his designs would be informed by both minimalism, and the avant guard, while the design aesthetic remain internationalist. Move over it was important for Tim that the label was not seen to be rehashing the usual ‘British’ design tropes.
The first collection was brought by London’s hugely influential B-Store, the second collection was brought by Liberty, and success has continued on consecutively showing at London Fashion Week since Spring Summer 09.
