Sharon Wauchob is an Irish designer who studied at the Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London. Shortly after graduating, Wauchob moved to Paris, where she got to work for Koji Tatsuno under who she developed her knowledge of textiles and honed her design style that favours Japan-influenced asymmetrical cuts and ingenious drapery. Later, an in-house designer at Louis Vuitton LVMH, she cultivated her skills of inventiveness and experimentation.

In 1998, Sharon decided to launch her own label under her own name specializing in “alternative” fashion.[1] She shows her collections twice yearly during the Paris Fashion Week.[2]

In May 2009 EDUN, the global fashion brand of Ali Hewson and her husband, U2 singer Bono, appointed Sharon Wauchob as the new creative director.[3]
