That’s the Real Deal

27 May

Here at MFW HQ we are scouring the streets of Middlesbrough with our trusty cameras to snoop out the best dressed fashionistas.

However, this week we snooped out a celeb to get the low-down on their style and you can’t get anymore extravagant then antiques expert David Dickinson!

Name: David Dickinson

Style Icon? James Dean – throughout out my teen years all I used to wear were white t-shirts, battered leather jackets and tight blue jeans.
How would you describe your style? Fancy and individual.

Suit: Tailormade for David himself.
Silk tie: Gieves & Hawkes – Savile Row
Shoes:  Prada

We here at MFW HQ love David’s decadent style and his beautiful whimsical silk tie – we wish we could have own customized suits, although perhaps pink zebra skin three piece suit wouldn’t be a good look. 

Get David’s style by teaming up an oversized white blouse with a funky tie – keep the knot loose and large – and a pair of stand out pointed stilettos.

*Psst, psst* I have a secret to tell you that I swore to secrecy I wouldn’t tell anybody – I swore down on my sister’s life and everything (I don’t have a sister btw so I am free to tell you everything.)
