Luke Azzopardi

Costume Designer

After studying at Central Saint Martins (UAL) and the University of Malta (UM), creative director and founder Luke Azzopardi launched his eponymous couture brand. The Luke Azzopardi studio focuses on deconstruction and researched aestheticism stemming from Luke's academic background in costume history.

The creative director was awarded the prestigious 'Premio Cultura e Moda 2016' by L’Istituto Italiano di Cultura, the 'Fashion Designer of the Year 2018' award by LovinMalta, and has most recently received Arts Council Malta's 'International Achievement of the Year 2023' as well as 'Multidisciplinary Production of the Year 2023' alongside Open Square Collective and City of Art respectively. As a multidisciplinary designer, Azzopardi has designed large-scale national and international operatic as well as contemporary dance productions, and along with Open Square Collective, has been chosen by Arts Council Malta to design the country’s debut pavilion at the London Design Biennale 2023 (LDB).

‘Għonnella: Deconstructing the Garment’, his book on Malta’s national costume, was published by MidSea Books in 2022. In the world of opera, Azzopardi specialises in Puccini, having designed all of the composer's major works.
