Universal Works was started by David Keyte, who has been in the industry over 20 years. He spent 10 years at Paul Smith, before moving to be head of Marharishi for 5 years. He has also worked closely with Margaret Howell & Albam. He launched Universal Works with the aim to produce functional, affordable, well made, wearable clothes. Inspired by British Heritage, but with a modern feel all garments are well considered and easy to wear.
