Ginger’s recent leap southwards from Glasgow to London saw her graduate from Glasgow University and take on the London fashion scene as Fashion Coordinator at 1883 Magazine. After a début as Fashion Editor at GUM last year, and from being a regular face in the Glaswegian fashion scene, Ginger now lives in London, where she can regularly be spotted at the fashion week shows, attending press days, launches, previews and the likes. She now juggles between co-running Ginger Fashion Monsters, a Fashion Journalism Masters at London College of Fashion and her work at 1883. Multitasking? Not quite. More like a full-on dedication to the thing she loves most.
On the brink of leaving his student-days at Cambridge behind, the question not to ask Patrick is “What next?”. Instead, best to talk to him about fashion. After a year in Italy’s fashion capital it has become quite clear – if it wasn’t already the case - that that’s what he likes. A lot.
A dab hand at reworking the most unassuming items of clothing, he generally sails forth in the world wearing garments that have undergone a fair amount of (re-)cutting and (re-)sewing, not to mention the addition of fur or studs. As many of his friends know, he dreams of a walk-in-wardrobe to house his impressive charity-shop and car-boot finds, especially since his sourcing of clothes now also extends to the dangerously addictive world of eBay making for some brilliant…and occasionally not-so-brilliant buys. Either way, it certainly makes for an interesting collection of clothes.
