LUCKY 2013

You know me; like all the best self-help books advise, I believe in the power of now. It’s the current, and the just-around-the-corner, that tends to fire my imagination. But ’tis the season for looking back, and sometimes that can be useful, to reflect how far we’ve come, to generate new ideas, or even just to re-live a few cherishable moments (and, having taken over 50 flights this year to various hemispheres, I can re-live a few of them for the first time, free of jet-lag fug). It was a lucky-13 year for us, when our brilliant bespoke team reached new heights of excellence, even as some were relocated to the Elder Street basement; when new clients and collaborations took me from Doha to Hong Kong to Melbourne; and when projects with Tilda Swinton and Tracey Emin saw us turning our hands to exquisitely-tailored womenswear. Oh, and we dressed Superman too. Is it a bird? Is it a plane (not another one, please)? No, it’s – in the best traditions of The X Factor – TE’s amazing 2013 journey…
