Who is your celebrity dopple-ganger? Wolvareen from X Men.
Describe something that has changed the way you view the world: Last year I witnessed a suicide jumper!!! It was war and peace in a split second.
How do you fight the blues? By drinking wheat-grass shots and running around the track in the park. Sweat the repent out….
What song best describes your life? ‘Blue Flowers’ by Dr. Octagon, Kool Keith’s alter-ego.
How do you spend your time when you’re not working? Time spent walking my dog Bail100, loving my lover and sparring with my amazing friends. Oh an Noking: cutting and slashing and re-grafting the brand.
Describe the person you love the most: My long-term lover, Mr. Paul, who I have been with since we met 20 years ago. Although my mum is really first!!! And all my NHS Nurses, without the team operations get bodged!
What would you like to do before you die? Set up the first Noki-NHS floor in the 123 store on Brick Lane. Start an organic DrNoki beauty product range for the NHS, forward more Noki collborations with designers like Louise Gray, James Long and Tomas Murphy to recreate their unique styles in DrNoki’s sustainable canvases to produce the Uber-One-Off for a new generation, sustainable future. Also create a catwalk installation at the Love Box festival in the summer. Win the Turner Prize. (haha) And remind myself to breathe.. that always helps.
What is your life’s mantra? The 3 R’s: ‘Rejection Breeds Reinvention‘.
Describe your perfect day: Meeting my new backers Ross and Michelle from LMB, that day we took a leap of faith. Also to see a new generation wearing a ‘one-off’ brand on a sunny day. From there mash it up, night out… Beep beep woop woop bring the ‘one-off’ on… cheers from DrNoki.
