This month we're delighted to share with you the musical choices of Senior Menswear Designer, Andrea Eckersley; Andrea has put together some of her favourite tracks especially for our Create & Develop Soundtrack for April.
Kerry and Andrea go back a long way, as once upon a time they worked together on the design team at Shop Direct - huge thanks for this month's wonderful playlist, Andrea!
"Hi there, my name is Andrea Eckersley and I’ve been lucky enough to work in fashion since graduating in 1992! I’ve worked for many companies over the years designing both menswear and boyswear and I’m now Senior Designer at N Brown heading up the Menswear design team.
I've been into dance music since my teenage years, taping the Stu Allen radio show every Wednesday night without fail and playing back the latest soul hip hop and electro. I embraced house music and went to lots of warehouse parties and club nights in the nineties. I don’t go out as much now but my better half is still DJing so I just have to content myself with listening to his radio show!
I’ve been very fortunate to have travelled the world with my profession and met many fantastic colleagues who have become friends over the years. Long may it continue!"
