Tim Soar set up POST Design in the 1980s with graphics superstar Neville Brody, working on projects in major museums in the UK and mainland Europe. After years moonlighting as a DJ, Tim set up global music consultancy Music Concrete, working with hotel and fashion brands like Ian Schrager Hotels, Adidas, Fendi and many others. In 2006, he launched menswear label SOAR to great acclaim.
“I come from menswear, so very clean, well-made womenswear with mannish touches.”
“There have been a few. But in fashion, doing a very successful show that closed the 25th anniversary London Fashion Week was pretty special.”
