His diamonds are forever, and he HAS got the range.


 

We love a design! In fact, you might say we’ve got designs on designs! Oooh! Hilarious. Good one QX.

Not but seriously, anything that’s creative is a-ok in our book, and Martin Rab has been creating by the shedload, with his daring range of cheeky, sparkling partywear.

It’s been endorsed by everyone from fashion guru Gok Wan, to queen of passports Nadine Coyle!

We spoke to Martin to find out more.


Hey Martin! Tell us a bit about your designs.

It started off based around Bespoke Harnesses, diamanté with leather, denim with studs…things that were different to what was on the market. It’s now grown to so much more. It all comes down to the personal details. Each design is tailored individually with constant contact, sketches and feedback until we reach the best possible outcome – and it’s all hand made by myself.

Where do you get your INSPO?

Absolutely everywhere – from the internet to clubs to friends. But most of the inspiration is me just playing around at home with different materials and embellishments. I try to mix and match things that people don’t necessarily think would go together and don’t give up until I make work!

What would you like your work to represent?

I want whoever’s wearing a design of mine to feel confident and liberated, as well as knowing that they look like the most beautiful person in the world no matter what shape, size, gender or age. Everyone has the right to this feeling but our society nowadays dictates you to believe you should be a certain shape or weight or look good.I’m trying to show this is not true.

Tell us a bit about who you’ve worked with – what stages have your designs graced?

For the past few years I’ve been working for Orange Nation, doing the shows and costumes. But since launching my own business I’ve been very lucky and have already done some pretty amazing things – many Pride events with Gok Wan, Nadine Coyle, Livin Joy and now have ongoing designs with Danny Beard, Pandora from Kiss FM, Lola’s Showgirls at Hippodrome’s Casino, Buddha Bar London & Clubs all over U.K and Ireland.

FINALLY…what’s in store for the future?

I’m very excited about this mini collection of ‘Alternative’ tree decorations for Christmas, made from Leather with Spikes, Studs, Rivets & Chain… Lets say they have a Bondage/Fetish feel to them for those who like things abit more naughty, my favourite is def the Angel, so get online to my ETSY shop before they are all gone. Next year I already have some MAJOR things in the pipeline but my lips are sealed at moment and I am just so happy that people are enjoying what I do. So Thank you for the support to everyone and QX as well who have always been behind me.

Aw! Cheers Martin!
