From the founder

Gresham and his wife, Fal, launched the Gresham Blake brand in Brighton at the height of ‘Cool Britannia’ in 2000. Since then, Gresham’s eye-catching creations for high-profile clients including Ray Winstone, Steve Coogan, Jimmy Page, Plan B and Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim) have brought him fashion industry recognition and an ever-growing army of customers attracted by his signature combination of quality garments with a quirky twist. Gresham grew up in Tunbridge Wells, inheriting his needlework skills from his mother, a talented seamstress and art teacher. His mum’s influence on his career direction was evident early – by the age of four he was already using his tailoring skills to create apparel and matching accessories for his Action Man collection. After briefly considering a career as a sculptor, he went on to study fashion at Brighton University, following in the footsteps of former alumni, Barbara Hulanicki.
