What I love about my job, or should I say ‘jobs’, is that I get to do something different every day. Right now I’m working on a number totally distinct projects - the launch of fashion show in South America, doing a book on style and a collab project for my brand House Of Garmsville. The Neat Offensive, a film documentary I started a couple of years ago, is getting back on track and I’m also working closely with Dexys [formerly Dexys Midnight Runners] as the band’s creative director. Oh and I’m also consulting on a TV series for the BBC.
I love clothes – from about four years old my parents refused to pick my clothes for me, because I was so particular - apparently. But for as long as I can remember I’ve been into not just wearing clothes but figuring out the way we dress as a language, about trends and also about how clothes are made. When I left university I wanted to be a stylist, but I was really put off by the fashion industry at the time – it was way less diverse than it is now. So I did clubs and later creative consultancy instead – but even then I was always doing personal styling, branding and writing about style. In the past few years though, I think I became more associated with menswear through my blog Garmsville. I had no clue how big it would become – I just started writing about the clothes I love.
