Biography

Percy Parker is a British fashion designer from the Isle of Wight. He graduated from Royal Holloway in 1993 to become part of the fashion/art collective PPQ. At the end of the 1990s Percy Parder was running a nightclub in London called Happiness Stan’s. There he met Amy Molyneaux one night while he was DJing. At this time Amy was still at college in Preston while the PPQ fashion line was in its infancy. After Amy gradueted, she moved down to London and they started work on their first proper collection. At the beginning they were a bit unusual for a fashion brand – Percy has just a degree in history and politics and no formal training. He was rubbish at drawing, but Amy was brilliant at interpreting ideas and turning them into patterns. Today, PPQ set the beat for London’s fashion drum and include some of today’s hottest style icons and artists as their fans. Today, the design duo craft cutting-edge collections in strong shapes and bold prints incorporating elaborate fabrics in a spectrum of directional colours.
