We are delighted to bring you the first installment from our main 2020 collection. This edition sees us continue to celebrate the work of our fellow creatives from the world of music, fashion and lifestyle and who are all using their platforms to bring total inspiration.


For those who love their fashion we were delighted to collaborate with the incredible Lone Design Club for an exclusive shoot and it is an absolute blessing to have the brand's CEO & Founder Rebecca Morter as our cover star to kick off our main 2020 collection in style.  We also were delighted to feature NUFS and their Zero Waste Campaign, as well as the students of FdA Fashion Retail & Enterprise at Newcastle College and ofcourse not forgetting highlights of the London Fashion Week's SS20 celebrations.


Darkus would not be the same without a little bit of music either, and not only do we take a look back at some of this years fantastic events but we also take the opportunity to pay special tribute to the likes of The Strokes, The 1975 plus introduce you to a number of north east artists such as Laurens Court, Hector Gannet, Lizzie Esau and Hannah Robinson to name but a few.
