Marios Schwab first completed the School for Textile and Clothing Engineering in Annahof, Salzburg, with distinction, then graduated from ESMOD in Berlin at the top of his year. Afterwards he studied product design at Goldsmiths before completing his degree at Central Saint Martins with an MA in womenswear.
Already back then, the magazine The Face predicted a great career as the next big thing for the designer with Greek-Austrian roots. After designing the SS 04 collection for Kim Jones, Jones raved about him:
Ive come to admire Schwabs natural sense of elegance and his intimate understanding of the body. He is like a sculptor who works with fabric.
In 2005 Schwab presented his first solo collection FW 05/06 at London Fashion Week with support from Beverly Streeter and Tal Brener and he has been showing in London ever since.
