Designer to watch: Simon Preen
After we finished with the pictures, he told me his name was ‘ Simon’ (yes, this was already the moment where i was starting to think.. ” Could it be? Maybe? Nah, it’s not him”..unfortunately my brain cells were a bit slowly thinking) and approximately after ten minutes, while i was already arriving at my flat, I was quite sure I had photographed Simon Preen, the designer.
So Simon Preen is not only breathtakingly beautiful and very friendly, but also one of my favourite
up-and-coming London-based designers. He originally graduated from the London College of fashion, having studied menswear.
Soon after his graduation he got offered a deal with Urban Outfitters, designing womenswear. I really hope one day Simon will design menswear aswell, as he is a very promising young talent, and I would love to see his take on Men’s fashion.
Make sure to check him out at www.urbanoutfitters.com as his clothes are affordable aswell, one of the few reasons to have at least one piece of Simon Preen’s designs in our wardrobe.
Here are some pictures of his clothes I would love to have:
