Did a Fashion Journalism Degree. First Job, Fashion Editor for Bliss and Smash Hits magazine. He found a niche, printed some t-shirts that became a complete whirlwind of success!! With slogans such as 'Do me daily Christopher Bailey' and 'Get yer freak on Giles Deacon' this lead to his label 'House of Holland' which in 3 years has gone from printing T-shirts in his front room to selling clothes to Browns, Harrods and Dover Street Market. He has recently done collaborations with Levis and Debenhams!
I take a lot of inspiration from these two. They are probably my favourite designers because the designs are fun, fresh and quirky! They both started out in journalism and ventured to the design side. It just goes to show how complex a career path can be! Which is inspiring to me because I love writing and I love designing. It encourages me to carry on blogging, i've noticed a lot more views since i've changed my layout. With the use of Google analytics i can see how many views my blog gets a day, and where from! It makes me feel like a detective. Kinda! Anyways, i'm going to keep on doing what im doing, hopefully i'll be a big blogger like Disney Roller Girl, Oh Elle or Susie Bubble. It is already giving me opportunities/contacts. I'm trying to find a way i can brand myself, this could be it! Its definitely the thing i've become good at.
