Following his final year show he was spotted by the store Browns who bought his first collection. He was hailed by the press including Harpers and Queen and Vogue as one of the most exciting new designers.
Following his success Azagury joined the London Designer Collections in 1980 launching his 'New Romantics' collection, which was snapped up by major stores such as Harvey Nichols, Harrods, Saks, Bergdorfs and Barneys and is now one of Britain's foremost designers.
