Wayne Hemingway

Wayne Hemingway

MBE co-founder of fashion house Red or Dead.

With his now wife, he 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, Hemingway set up more stalls and brought in stock from around the world, realising that there was a business opportunity for second hand clothing.
