How do you describe to people what you do and your design style?
My brand Theo+George is a reflection of my life experiences and style – it combines luxurious materials with easy to wear styles.
What sort of comments do you get about your designs?
I often hear how soft and beautiful the clothes are and how versatile the collection is.
What is your background?
I have a degree in Physics and Economics, but always knew I wanted to be a fashion designer. I took every art class that my college offered and went to Harvard’s School of Design for the summer after I graduated. Initially, I worked for an Architecture firm for one year but I still felt that I wanted to work in a faster paced environment and on softgoods. From there, I got a job as the lead designer for a sporting goods company and then moved onto Burton Snowboards where I worked for their Outerwear department for seven years.
