With 35 years experience in the fashion industry, I am a hugely experienced professional with an international reputation, having travelled around the world in my career.

Since July 2013 I have been editorial director of Drapers, the UK’s leading fashion B2B title. This is my third stint on the magazine. During my seven-year break from Drapers, I concentrated on writing on men’s wear, men’s footwear, fashion retailing and related subjects for consumer titles such as theFinancial Times and Scabal’s Bespoken magazine.
In 2009 my acclaimed pictorial history of men’s tailoring, Sharp Suits, was published. The revised edition appeared in 2013. In addition to writing, I was involved in a wide range of consultancy work within the fashion and footwear sectors where my vast network of high-level contacts built up over three decades proved very useful.
