On episode #21 of Fashion Originators, I chatted with Martin White, one of the founders behind Crescent Trading --THE best place to buy fine woolens in the world.
A fashion industry fixture for the last 25 years, Crescent Trading supplies fabric for television, film and theatre companies alongside legendary designers like Christopher Raeburn, Vivienne Westwood and the young Alexander McQueen. In addition to their prestigious history, Phillip and Martin are also passionate about GIVING back to the London fashion and textile scene. Whether it’s through student sponsorships or interviews like today, their focus on sharing knowledge is something I aspire towards myself.
On the episode, Martin and I discuss the founding of Crescent trading, the importance of students, the principles of building a successful business, and what YOU need to know about fabric. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed doing it!
