It’s no exaggeration to describe Claude as one of Australia’s leading designers. Over the past 10 years he has produced award-winning designs for stage, screen, advertising and exhibitions.After graduating from the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts in 2005, Claude began a career in set and costume design. Thanks to an astonishing number of awards, commendations and fellowships (in London and Prague), Claude quickly became recognised both nationally and globally for his bold designs and unique use of space.During this time Claude was honoured to partner with the likes of Oscar-nominated director Baz Luhrmann and two-time GQ artist of the year Vincent Fantauzzo.
It was in 2009, when he was invited to design the costumes a TV campaign for spring lamb (think models dressed as the best accompaniments to spring lamb – onion, herbs, etc.) that Claude’s career took a commercial turn. Since then he has led successful campaigns for Topman, Foxtel, Myer, BMF and Stone Shoes.
