Interview with Wayne Hemingway MBE
Wayne Hemingway is co-founder of fashion label Red or Dead and HemingwayDesign. After 21 consecutive seasons on the catwalk at London Fashion Week, he and his wife sold Red or Dead in a multi million cash sale in 1999. He then set up HemingwayDesign, joining forces with building firm Wimpey to work on various housing projects specialising in affordable and social design.
He is the Chairman of Building for Life, CABE (Commission for Architecture and The Built Environment) a funded organisation that promotes excellence in the quality of design of new housing. He is a Professor in the Built Environment department of Northumbria University, a writer for architectural and housing publications as well as a judge of international design competitions including the regeneration of Byker in Newcastle and Salford in Greater Manchester.
Having received an MBE in the Queen's 2006 Birthday List and being Chairman of the South Coast Design Forum, he believes in the supremacy of design, whether in clothes or in buildings.
