He grew up in Brooklyn and left for London in the 70's where he worked at the landmark psychedelic glam boutique Granny Takes a Trip. From Granny's, he befriended Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood - then installed at their shop just a few doors down the King's Road - and became Westwood's right-hand man.
Then he went back to New York and then to Asia, where he oversaw the launch of Korean Vogue and eventually ensconced himself in Tokyo, with his wife, merchandise display artist Naoko Inagaki.
He's currently working as fashion director of Vogue and GQ Magazine Japan, creative director at Vogue, Vogue Girl and W in South Korea as well as a creative consultant for the Korean edition of GQ and Allure magazines.
No wonder I was SO happy when my boss told me he would come visit our shop!
He's extremely friendly and with such a positive attitude.
