Until recently Ben was best known as an erotic photographer but after watching his mother, Vivianne Westwood designing through out his life, he has decided to venture into the fashion world on his own and why the hell not!
His first collection is called A Child of Jago, which was debuted at London Fashion Week. Westwood describes it as “outdoor woodsman, Red Indian, cowboy”.
For the grooms out there that like something a little bit quirky and different get yourself down to Cad & The Dandy , which is where Ben’s new ready-to-wear collection will be showcased.
Cad and The Dandy offer high end bespoke tailoring and have shops in Saville Row, City and Canary Wharf. They designed suits for the recent wedding of Zara Philips and Mike Tindall.
“We specialise in bespoke tailored suits, shirts and overcoats – but that does not mean we are too staid to indulge in a touch of trendsetting,” Ian Meiers, co-founder of Cad & the Dandy, said. “We just love the exuberance of Ben’s work – it’s the perfect foil for the more formal pieces we deal with in our bespoke tailoring service.” – Vouge.co.uk
The collection is said to be cutting edge, I would definitely make the time to check it out.
