We thought you deserved to know a little bit about them too...

I am inspired by a bunch of things. Most often by visual artists and travelling.

My fashion sense comes from picturing a style, then developing it.
My latest wardrobe addition is...

My last fashion indulgence was a few pieces from the Milieu collection by Song for the Mute. Couldn't resist, awesome collection.
 
 
Gary & Dean
 
My style icon is...
 
Gary: Rei Kawakubo - Amazing Japanese vision of turning fabric into style through mending, blending, and gender-bending.

Dean: I am always fascinated by David Hockney... and also Kate Bush and Chloe Sevigny stand out in my mind.

The best thing about what I do is...

Gary: Working with people with passion and commitment, plus meeting all types of people who reaffirm that through quiet honesty and kindness plus application of my training, you can make profound differences in their lives.

Dean: Harnessing a creative impulse to help others communicate something.

I've got too many...
 
Gary: Commitments

Dean: T-shirts/thoughts in my head at any one time.

My style icon is...
 
In clothing, I love Damir Doma for Silent, Ben Politt's designs for Friedrich Gray and also Claude Maus's pieces. As all round fashion icon people, I would have to say Cary Grant... Sophisticated, well dressed, well spoken, funny and good looking. and Vivienne Westwood. - ever since the punk days, she has been original and great, doesn't take herself too seriously and will publish a really bad photo of herself. There are only one of these people ever. Also, Isabella Rossellini and Angelica Houston... both just keep getting better and better with age and are both incredibly stylish women... must be the family stables they come from!

Lately I am listening to...
 
A real mixture... Patti Smith, The Smiths, Al Jarreau, Al Green Wild Beasts, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Immelda May....even a bit of Earth Wind and Fire...all mixed together with early Blondie!

My latest wardrobe addition is...
 
Two great pairs of pants, one from Song for the Mute by Lyna Ty and Melvin Tanaya and the other pair from Silent by Damir Doma, all great designers...

My friends would buy me a...
 
My friends will usually ask me what I want before buying me anything, I'm particularly hard to buy for. But otherwise Beatles memorabilia or anything to do with 50s, 60s music is a safe bet.

Lately I am listening to...
 
As I said in the last question I'm a huge fan of 50's and 60's music. Artists like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and 70's punk bands like The Stooges and The Clash are definitely up there for me. I don't usually enjoy current day music but I love Radiohead also. I could list so many bands there wouldn't be any room left, but a few of my favourite songs include Come Together - The Beatles, Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd, Imagine - John Lennon, Search and Destroy - Iggy and the Stooges and Idioteque - Radiohead.
