In the early days, starting as a marketing intern, I was bright eyed and bushy tailed – and I don’t think I’ve ever lost that enthusiasm. I was always hanging around the design team, showing interest in products and suggesting, “Wouldn't that be cool in white?” When an opportunity to work more closely with the design team came up, I jumped at it and began helping to design one of the first Le Specs collections after our rebrand. Prior to this collection, we’d sell around 300 units of a style, but a style I designed for that collection sold around 17,000 units. You’d see it at every music festival at the time. After that, our CEO came to me and said, “You work in design now – what’s next?” From there, my progression happened naturally, but with some serious hustle.
