The Story of Mr. Start

I built a very successful and highly influential men’s retail business in the 1980s and 90s. When I moved to Shoreditch from my old haunt of Notting Hill, Brix , my wife , and I decide that the area needed a fashion shop. So we decided opened three! One being a woman’s multi brand fashion store. Another was my own brand Mr Start, based around contemporary tailoring and focusing on a more casual way to dress. Happily it was an immediate success.


Over the years it has continued to evolve as both fashion and life styles have changed and it has grown to become one of Shoreditch original stores with customers from all over London including Keira Knightley, Alexa Chung, David Schwimmer , Rose Byrne , Florence Welch , Sandra Oh.
