He told shoe designer and friend, Natalia Barbieri, during an interview for Vogue magazine: ''I didn't know I wanted to go into fashion - I just kind of fell into fashion, I think, more than anything. That's [This Morning] how it started. We won the competition, from then I just finished university and then I thought me coming out of university could be bit of an adventure for a couple of years.
''I always said those first few years you and I [Natalia] observed the industry and thought there could be something to this and went from there. ''
