Locally Known is the brain child of a Manchester based graphic artist and fashion enthusiast who has spent ten years working on creating a brand that sees fashion through the eyes of an artist and innovator. The result of which is comfortable and luxurious with well thought out customisable elements that set this brand apart from other luxury clothing brands. With many of our garments being unisex and some of them made as a one size fits all garment; Locally Known is quickly becoming the go to brand for luxury, stylish, creative and functional statement pieces. Some of our garments have customisable elements to allow for further expression and a personal twist. Eventually we aim to add custom options to all locally known garments as we continually search for new ways to improve the versatility and functionality of ready to wear luxury.
The bird on our logo symbolises freedom, freedom of expression, freedom of lifestyle and most importantly freedom to be yourself. The brand name “locally known” is a representation of our creators life path. Growing up on the Manchester streets and having a reputation he was known by many for the wrong reasons. The lessons he learned from the people and the lifestyle of an inner city neighborhood equipped him with the motivation, tenacity and eye to build a brand that incorporates functionality with wearable art and creativity.
