Chris Davis, a blind, transgender fashion designer, inspired by the likes of David Bowie, Vivienne Westwood, Malcolm McLaren and Balenciaga, talks us through an inspiring life story. The story begins with Chris as a small boy ‘dressing up’ at his Grandmother’s, being given a hard time at school, living in a rich and vibrant Camden at the height of the punk era, losing his sight and finally transitioning from panel-beater to fashion designer of alternative, bespoke clothing. It’s a fascinating journey and perfectly timed to celebrate non-conformity and diversity during pride month.
Piers Roberts takes us on a delightful journey through his life. From an early childhood in rural mid-Essex, his confusing boarding school years, the rise and fall of his ground-breaking design shop. Finally discovering that the basis of his non-conformity was autism. A fascinating life story that has led to a whole new methodology and thinking around navigating innovation in Riskkit.
