“This season’s inspiration is made up of various threads coming together in one extravaganza! I have been looking at interiors; the styles in which we choose to decorate our spaces and how it reflects who we are to some extent. This idea expands into how men dress and prescribed notions of masculinity, particularly looking at Rick James.”
IMPACT OF LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN:
“London Collections has had a huge impact on my label in regards to the platform that it has given menswear designers in London. I am so proud to be a part of, and have contributed to the need to have London Collections: Men created.”
FIRST PIECE OF MENSWEAR DESIGNED:
“I can remember the first piece of menswear I used to wear myself as a kid. It was a pair of BOY white boxer shorts that were printed with blue stars all over. They belonged to my big cousin Darren and I used to wear them as shorts whenever I got the chance; I loved them with all my heart!”
