Profile Information

Profession / role:
Managing Director
Company / organisation:
Markman OTW
Website (if you have one):
My primary role in relation to fashion is:
Supplier, Manufacturer
I am a 'new kid on the block' when it comes to fashion, and especially ethical fashion. However, what I can 'bring to the party' from the outset is strong commercial marketing expertise that includes creating a strong brand, determining your market entry and overall strategic marketing and communications approaches, and ultimately your customer engagement/management programmes.

Over a year ago I met Cyndi Rhoades at an marketing industry event on ethical trade. We discussed how ethical clothing/fashion could make a difference on changing the impact on communities worldwide. Having developed my career in marketing and communications across a wide range of industries and sectors, I decided to set up my own business (Markman OTW) so I could bring my experience to bear on the drive to establish ethical business approaches - the end game being, enlightened businesses driving a responsible business agenda globally, delivering value to each member of the supply chain through to the end customer. And although I won't be able to cover every aspect of business, I am very committed to the following: clothing/fashion, retail, music, food, and health (sport/fitness/healthy living). These are all interrelated, and touch on the key requirements of the human condition - to feel nourished, healthy, equipped for life, to feel emotionally enhanced/supported, and to share our good fortune with others. To find out more, please check out my website (see above).

And just a bit about me......well, passionate about food/drink, embrace a healthy fitness regime, enjoy a wide range of sports, often found out at the theatre/club/concert, self-confessed petrolhead (sorry, but that's my weakness), and take an active interest in emerging trends/culture/changes to society and the World we live in.....and I'm a 'glass half-full, practical type'.

I am here to learn, and very keen to hear from you. And if I can provide some of my expertise in return, I'd be very happy to do so. Look forward to meeting you very soon!

Rally Round Adili PLC

Posted on February 5, 2010 at 12:45 2 Comments

Just got news that Adili PLC have temporarily suspended shares and need to fund raise. Is there any way we as a community can support them?

In this 'New World' when a brand like Adili is trying drive the ethical fashion agenda, and we are all connected to many different people through are online/offline networks, isn't there a way we can find a new solution to drawing on the right expertise and resources to help them?

Worth reading this…

I am currently undertaking some due diligence on the provision of ethically sourced textiles. I am particularly keen to understand;

- the requirement for ethically sourced textiles

- the volumes currently being provided/made available

- the requirements by the fashion sector for both ethical/non-ethical textiles

- the current and potential usage by designers and clothing manufacturers (indicated demand) of levels of usage (of ethically sourced textiles)

- the… Continue
