Being brought up in an aboriginal community in Australia, the bright lights and buzzing vibrant communities of London was always something Justin O Shea aspired to. He’s currently the worldwide buying director of the online luxury fashion store www.mytheresa.com.
“London was always the pinnacle of where I wanted to go. It gave me a personality, a direction, a future. London freed me to do the things I wanted to do.”
In this, Gin brand Beefeater’s latest video series, various people are seen discussing why they love Great Britain’s capital city and what they find so great about it! From it’s status as a fashion hub thanks to likes of Shoreditch and Mayfair, to getting shoes shined in Burlington Arcade, the videos illustrate what makes London one of the greatest cities in the world.
Needless to say Justin’s perspective of London is purely down to his passion, and creative drive for the fashion industry, specifically the ‘haute couture’ fashion industry. For many rappers and producers, London is held in the highest regard when it comes to networking, performing, recording and getting your name out!
The connection with this video and Beefeater Gin (in case you were wondering!) is to celebrate the brand which was founded in 1820, it is the only remaining major premium gin still distilled in London.
