Nationality: English / Age: 40 / Discipline: Fashion
Ingrained in London’s landscape of independent boutiques, Garbstore calls the west-central district of Notting Hill its home, where it has operated a tri-leveled brick & mortar location since 2008. Offered within the confines of the shop is a mixture of womenswear, children's and baby-wear, jewelry, lifestyle accessories, homewares, and vintage goods, all centered on efforts to instill new appreciation in historic goods. The space also houses Ian Paley's aptly named brand, "Garbstore," which approaches each release with cutting edge interpretations of vintage pieces. This year marked the opening of a Garbstore location in Los Angeles, while Ian worked alongside Reebok in presenting his take on a range of classic sneakers inspired by an inside-out deconstructionist approach.
