Wild Bunch & Friends - Craig Ford Q&A
Due to the phenomenal response of previous Q&As we decided to do a few more. This week we have 'the happiest man in fashion' and was recently named 114th most important person in Scottish fashion by the style bible that is Drapers Magazine. Now, he spends a lot of his time sunbathing on beaches all over Europe sipping Mojitos, don’t ask me how he does it. A warm welcome to short arms himself, Mr Craig Ford.
