Successful British fashion designer and entrepreneur Henry Holland shares insights into his trend-setting designs and swift rise in the fashion industry. 

Fresh from his 2013 Spring-Summer Collection show at London Fashion Week, Henry spoke to Chinese audiences about the unconventional career path that transformed him, in less than three years, from journalism student to celebrated designer with A-list followers such as Katy Perry, MIA and American Vogue’s Anna Wintour.  

During his Smart Talk sessions, Henry also discussed his sources of inspiration and the process through which he turns creative ideas into desirable products. Introducing his fashion label ‘House of Holland’, he reflected on the business strategies that have won him distribution agreements in premium department stores and design contracts to create t-shirts, shoes, eyewear, hosiery and more for some of the world’s hottest brands.
