I was fortunate enough to show at Jacket Required this year and to meet lots of nice people. Amongst them was the irrepressibly dapper Karlmond. Just marvel at that quiff...surly one of the natural (or is it man made) wonder of the world. He dug the PJ's (that will be coming out soon) and generally had very nice things to say about the brand....views that he was happy to express on his Tumblr account which can all be seen in his essential round up of the event here.
I'm grateful for those kind words. The industry can be very tough. Its like anything and any job. There are ups and downs...strikes and gutters. The peer group approval perhaps shouldn't mean as much as it can feel like it does...but for independent designers such as us....its a needed lift...so thank you Karlmond...I look forward to seeing you at many more shows!!
I've included a picture of two nameless fashion journalists.....the first person to name them both wins a free pair of boxershorts!! Good luck. Contact me on twitter!! www.twitter.com/burtonwode
I also include the official event round up here. They were kind enough to no only include a shot of the Burtonwode goods (Premium Boxershorts and Pyjamas, you know the drill), but they also put me next to my Scouse compatriot (in the photo...not in the show) Christopher Shannon. Alright Kidda (La). My thanks go out to Charlotte, Alice and the whole team for making me feel very welcome. I look forward to seeing you all soon, and congrats on the whole event.
