The company’s founder David Teale has been a textile designer for over 20 years, and has worked with some of the world’s top designers such as Calvin Klein, Donna Karan and John Galliano.
In a recent interview with The Lad, David spoke about how his company’s products have helped him transition from a garment designer to a clothing designer.
“I’ve got a good understanding of the fabric industry and it’s where I can really connect with the fabrics that I work with,” he said.
The Lad’s CEO, Scott Johnson, also shared how David’s clothing helped him to achieve his goal of becoming a full-time textile designer.
What I love about his work is that he has the confidence in the product and he knows how to use the fabric to his advantage.””
We’re not always looking for the best and the best is not always the best, but that is what David has always done, and he has always been a big part of the design process.”
What I love about his work is that he has the confidence in the product and he knows how to use the fabric to his advantage.
“He has the passion and he’s not afraid to make something out of nothing.”
The Lad has become a regular presence at events around the world, including an award-winning festival in Australia, and it is now on track to open its first store in the US later this year.
We also spoke to David about his current clothing line, and how he’s finding his place in the industry.
“I’m doing something I’ve never done before and I’m excited,” he told The Lad.
“When I was younger, I always wanted to be a fashion designer.
I never thought I would be a designer, but I am now.”
David has been working with designers such a Calvin Klein and Donna Karian for over a decade, and says the fabric business is a natural progression for him.
I think it’s going to be great, I’ve always been an innovator.
I don’t think it would be possible to do what I do today if I hadn’t been a designer.
But I’m really happy that I have my own clothes company and I can start doing things that are really good for the fabric community.
It’s exciting to have this opportunity and to have something that I think is going to change the fabric world.
David said he feels like he’s at the beginning of something that will eventually lead to his own clothing line.
“As a designer it is exciting to see a brand grow and develop and to be able to be part of that is something that’s going from an early stage to a larger-scale company,” he continued.
“But the journey of being a designer and being part of this community is very exciting.”
