Alex Noble was interviewed by Grazia’s Paula Reed at the Drapers Fashion Summit this week. Alex is only in his second year but before creating his own collection he’d been doing private orders for the previous two years. He’s also one of 4 designers who are part of The Haus of Gaga. He’s made her quite a few outfits, from the Brit awards to the red bandage outfits in the Bad Romance video!
Kirsty Ward, Corrie Nielsen, and Eudon Choi were the young designers on the Drapers Fashion Summit panel discussing the future of British fashion. Kirsty and Corrie both attended Central Saint Martins and Eudon graduated from Royal College of Art, and all three panelists worked for different designers before starting their own label. Working for other designers gave them all a better insight to the business side of fashion. All three designers experienced similar chellages about sales, manufacturing, doing fashion shows and how essential PR has been to their business.
