Interview – Gareth Crowe

Interviewing Gareth Crowe would be the most laid back interview that we had done, talking to him was like having a conversation with somebody that you’ve know for ages and you love to hear the story of how the world used to be.

When he was giving his presentation he told us about the companies that he had an opportunity to work with like Hugo Boss, Aspinal London, Adidas, Russell & Bromley and the list most definitely goes on.

We also had a talk with Natt who is a blogger and founder of natthias.com however he also works for Drafted Magazine. He came to speak to us about how owning your own blog gives you a whole new leg up into the fashion industry that so many people want into. We were given a task by him to go out into the street of Central London and take pictures of some street wear that linked to Savile Row, this is some of what we found.
