Production and Sales / Wholesale
MARK WILL BE GIVING HIS TALK 16:30 - 17:45 WEDNESDAY 21TH FEBRUARY AT FREEMASONS' HALL IN HOLBORN, IN THE OLD BOARDROOM.
Mark Dodds graduated from the University of Leeds in 2001 with a BA in textile management. Since then Mark has worked for various suppliers to the British fashion industry in technical and sourcing roles, travelling the world to source fabrics and working with garment making factories to make products sold to the British and US high street retailers.
In 2010 Mark partnered with Christopher Waller to set up a luxury womenswear fashion label. In doing this he gained experience working with small UK manufacturers, fabric suppliers, PR and sales agents and as a result knows first hand what it's like to be a fashion start up and the challenges that they face. In 2012 Christopher Waller joined Fashion Scout and presented the collection during London Fashion week.
Since launching Christopher Waller, Mark has worked as head of production for Oliver Spencer and now operates as a textile production and sourcing consultant working with clients including ASOS, Topshop, Charlotte Tilbury, Christopher Raeburn, Fox Movies and Warner Bros.
