Personal Statement

I’ve enjoyed a long international career in the fashion industry from Designer level through to  Design/ Creative director as both an employee and  founder/ co-founder. These positions have allowed me to base in my home city London, Hong Kong, New York, Japan, Shanghai, Italy (Veneto) and now Chicago. 

I love the engineering, building aspect behind designing and developing product and finding that sweet spot between aesthetic beauty, geometry and user function. I am very interested with developments in the Web 3.0 and blockchain technology space vis-à-vis its impact and deployment in the fashion industry and have recently partnered with a motion designer; I design the clothing using CLO3d digital design software, he animates.  All digital releases, press and collaborations can be found on my website and IG.
