Wayne Hemmingway MBE
"Anyone can be creative, anyone can help society move forward and anyone can make money while they do these things".
Hear Wayne’s story on how anyone can make a difference to society through taking action.
Wayne Hemmingway is an English Fashion designer and co-founder of Red or Dead (http://www.redordead.com/) one of the UK's leading fashion design companies.
Red or Dead started when Wayne and his partner Gerardine decided to sell the contents of their wardrobes on Camden Market. By the end of the first year they had 16 stalls on the market and were buying and selling shipments of second hand clothing and footwear from all over the world. Red or Dead went on to open stores in Camden, Manchester, London, Copenhagen, Birmingham, Leeds, Tokyo, and Prague. Red or Dead received global acclaim, winning the British Fashion Council's Streetstyle Designer of the Year Award in 1996, 1997 and 1998.
After 21 consecutive years on the catwalk Red or Dead was sold in 1999 and Wayne and Geradine set up Hemmingway Design which provides a number of design services from corporate re-design, fashion design (including designing the new McDonalds uniform) , interior design, exhibition design and designing for events including the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pagant, the Vintage Festival and the Preston Guild.
Wayne is a local lad born in Morecambe and supports Blackburn Rovers Football Club.
The event is FREE, so it can’t hurt to come along. It is aimed at individuals that have an interest in developing job winning entrepreneruship skills or who might be thinking about starting a community project, social enterprise or business. Even if you decide starting a business isn’t right for you, you will still meet some really interesting people.
