Head of Art at Kimbolton school, Lisa Bamford remembers Cowan who had a particular love of sequins and metallic materials.
Lisa stated that Christian studied Art History and Art History in sixth grade. He was a hardworking student who was focused, creative, and driven.
“I can see lots of echoes of his early work in his current pieces – his love of sequins, for instance, metallic fabrics and even tin foil!”
According to reports, he began taking an interest in fashion designers such as Alexander McQueen and Gareth Pugh at the age of just 12.
After Kimbolton school, Cowan headed to London where he attended Central Siant Martins college for a foundation year to pursue fashion design.
He later attended the London School of Fashion and gained his degree in fashion design.
During his first year, Kimbolton school shares how “delighted” they were “when all of his 1st-year degree collection was bought by Lady Gaga”.

Cowan was also busy designing outfits for Miley Cryus’s tour whilst studying for his degree, balancing both a degree and a celebrity designing lifestyle.
Taking to a successful career as a fashion designer after finishing education he secured his first window display in Jeffery, New York and dressed Cardi B for her album, Invasion of Privacy released in 2018.
Cowan has also designed outfits that have been worn by a number celebrities at the Met Gala – an annual fundraising gala in which celebs dress to impress.
Sawetie (an American rapper) wore one Christian Cowan’s designs for the Met Gala. The dress was a sparkly, red, cut out gown with a thigh slit. It also featured a glittering train that wows on Gala stairs.
Bringing the glitz, glamour and most unique designs to every piece he creates you can easily see why he’s known as one of the top fashion brands and designers.
