Wayne Hemingway

MBE co-founder of fashion house Red or Dead

Wayne Hemingway Biography

With his now wife, Hemingway emptied the contents of his wardrobe and sold all the clothes on a stall he had rented at Camden Market – the stock flew off the rails and their profit far outweighed the expenditure of the cost of the stall. Following on from that, he set up more stalls and brought in stock from around the world, realising that there was a business opportunity for second-hand clothing.

After gaining a degree in town planning and geography at the University College London, Hemingway followed his dream work in fashion and design.

Red or Dead was born a few years later which went on to hit the heights and get a huge order from Macy’s – after winning numerous awards and gaining a cult following,

Hemmingway sold Red or Dead for millions Hemmingway now works on affordable as well as social design and was involved in a mass market housing project in Newcastle for 800 houses on the Staiths South Bank; these houses and the architectural designs of them have gone on to win multiple awards.
