Hi.

Welcome to Fashion Originators, a podcast hosted by me, Stephanie Irwin. Every other week, I interview game-changing fashion entrepreneurs. Each episode, THEY share their wins, losses and wisdom – all to inspire your career and personal goals.

On the latest episode of Fashion Originators, I have the joy of interviewing Patrick McDowell, who, as aptly put by L’Officiel Magazine, is the ‘CSM graduate already dressing the stars.’ While that is very true (the likes of Rita Ora, M.I.A and Slick Woods on the cover of Elle UK serve as evidence), Patrick’s brand and vision go far beyond straight-up glamour.

During his placement year at Burberry, Patrick learned that Burberry only used 30% of their sampling fabric. After writing Christopher Bailey a letter, Patrick was given off-cut fabric to use for his graduate collection. Entitled ‘Climbing Family’ the collection is a juxtaposition of hypermasculine climbingwear against his ‘Liverpool glam’ roots.
