DAY 1: AN INTERVIEW WITH THE FACE BEHIND THE BRAND: JO HAWTREE head designer of GUNSMOKE AND LAVENDER..
- Jo, tell us a little bit about yourself..
I’m a young entrepreneur, from a fashion background in business, design and styling. I’m currently setting up my own menswear fashion label, Gunsmoke and Lavender which will be launching this year. Style is at the heart of my life and my business. I don’t follow fashion trends. I encourage everyone to be true to themselves. Everyone has a story.
Where do you get your design inspiration?
Inspiration can come from anywhere and I am inspired by something new every day. Each collection I design is personal to me. I have to connect on an emotional level with a subject for me to research into it thoroughly enough to develop a strong, structured collection.
How would you define your personal style?
Unique and edgy but inconsistent..
