David David - Interview
As I was checking out all the latest up and coming designers on the LFW website I came across David David's striking bold abstract prints and colourful, imaginative clothing designs. Then I had a sudden idea to ask him to be interviewed for my blog - as his words could probably inspire many of us fashion fanatics and future designers. When I emailed him to tell him how I was a great fan of his designs and would love to interview him for my blog- his immediate request was sounds like fun............ Enjoy!
me - When and how did you first launch your career as a fashion designer?
David - um five years ago, tripped up on it, made a t wore it to a party
someone said 'i like that, can i have it?' i said 'no, but i will make
you one' wham it happened.
me - Where do you get inspirations for your designs?
David - anywhere, i just find them where they are left. I dont often look
for them i just gather what ive come across in the few months prior to
