PAUSE finds out more about Less Clothing and gets some branding tips.

LESS_Clothing_003_SS_Page_03

Tell us a little about starting Less Clothing, when and how did it all begin?
I launched LESS 3 years ago, whilst at university I always had a passion to combine fashion and graphic design I used to make graphics and print them onto t-­shirts. Whilst I was a designer in London the urge to start LESS became really natural and it just happened after some research.

The brand mainly focuses on monochrome colours, does the name ‘LESS’ represent this and why?
Not really, LESS are the last four letter of my last name Bookless.

Take us through your design process for each collection, where do you get your inspiration from?
I get most my ideas from referencing of blogs and merging that with my own ideas. Once I have some ideas I print my reference sheets then start to shortlist my products and digital draw my cads digitally, after this I then get my design sheets ready for my factory and go into a sampling process and tweak for final production.

You’ve managed to get the brand on well­known celebrities, how did you get your stuff on Beyonce and Cara Delevingne?
My PR helped me get them onto the stars so collaboration of them liking my products and her getting them to the stylists.

How important is it for a brand to partner with a PR agency?
Yes PR is massive for fashion and its really helped me get more exposure with top celebrities this would not of been possible without PR as they have the contacts.

Can you give us one tip into dressing for less…
Monochrome with good textures and cuts. Sick trainers is key.

You’re going into the forth collection (AW14) for Less Clothing, what can we expect from the upcoming collection?
Have to wait and see 😉

 
What advice would you give to someone out there who wants to start up a brand, doesn’t know where to start but also has graphic design skills?
Research is essential I spent a year preparing to launch use all your contacts to find out everything you need and don’t be shy. Know your market.
