Set Designer David White (I call him Dave) is riding a seemingly endless wave of success at the moment, amassing a huge body of polished work for just about every important name in fashion, editorial and retail you can think of. How many people out there can count Alasdair McLellan, Juergen Teller and Metz + Racine as collaborators, 032C, Vogue and Harpers Bazaar as clients and still have time to work with brands like Vivienne Westwood, Uniqlo and Kenzo? Nobody else spring to mind? Thought not.
Like all great creatives out there, Dave’s got to where he is with an undeniable mixture of serious graft and raw talent. If you need proof of the creative vision and precision execution that makes this guy’s work so good you only need to take a look at his latest project for Wallpaper’s May edition in which all set build and styling credits belong to him (the photography belongs to Leandro Farina). It’s as slick a piece of editorial as you’re likely to see and a perfect example of why Dave’s in such high demand. Long may the wave continue!
