Sat 29th May: Stephen Doherty Interviewed by Craig Lawrence
Whilst we were blogging for FASHION 156 last week, Craig interviewed illustrator Stevie but due to technical reasons the entry was never uploaded.................so, hey presto, here it is for all to see............with introduction by Craig..........
Stevie is my rock, if it wasn’t for Stevie I’d be a right mess, more of a mess than I am now! A legend in the making Stevie is one in a million! And he does nice drawings. Oh and he needs a new boyfriend so please take a bit of time out of your day to chat him up on facebook!"
Who are you?
What do you do?
When I’m not busy dropping out of Saint Martins I’m usually drawing/designing. I worked at Gareth Pugh for a while but I’ve been helping out Craig Lawrence for the last couple of years. You might also see me pulling the odd pint down The Joiners.
Where are/did you study?
Central Saint Martins. I’m heading back after the summer.
Why Fashion Design?
I enjoy dressing the body. I chose womenswear because I prefer the fluidity of the female form. I try to explore the figure and even the movement of the body in order to re-address the way I see it.
What would you like to be doing in a couple of years time?
I’d like to be working in my own studio and hopefully having finally graduated.
Has your home town affected your design work?
I don’t think so. I do miss home though. Every now and then I have to jump off the merry-go-round and pop back to Manchester for a sit down and a cup of tea.
Who's your favourite person?
Whoever wants to drop a tonne of money on my head in return for dresses.
What's your favourite dinner?
Ooh, depends. Anything that comes with fresh warm bread. I just woke up hung over with my flatmate and she went and got us Thai food – she’s a genius.
Any bad habits?
Being late – is that a habit? Procrastinating.
If you were a member of Girls Aloud which one would you be?
Ermmm… I think Nadine – doesn’t she live in LA? That’d be nice to try out.
