I don't mind. Take me to i-D.co anyway

Born in Ramsbottom, Henry Holland graduated from London College of Printing with a BA Journalism before launching his imaginative slogan Tees in 2006 as a bit of an in-joke.He quickly exploded onto the fashion scene when Gareth Pugh and Giles Deacon took their catwalk bows wearing the Mancunian’s signature ‘Fashion Groupies’ t-shirts. With their bright colours and bold statements - ‘CAUSE ME PAIN HEDI SLIMANE’ and ‘LET’S PLAY NAKED TWISTER LINDA EVANGELISTA’ - the t-shirts made Henry Holland the one to watch. A year later, House of Holland showed its first collection at London Fashion Week. Since then, the ‘Best Use of Tartan Award’ winner, and self-confessed shopaholic, has collaborated with Debenhams, Browns Focus and Pretty Polly, the latter resulting in a collection of exceptionally saucy hosiery. In i-D’s Creative Collaborators Issue, Henry’s mum told i-D about his childhood need for shell suits and early fashion passion. Henry continues to show in London and inject a much-needed dose of fun into the industry.

Secret Obsession? I don’t have any secrets left - I'm an over sharer! My obsession though is shopping, can't stop.
Favourite film? Clueless.
