In a career that spanned 10 years and has taken him from London to Paris to Tokyo, designer Andrew Todt has been making the fashion world smile.
Andrew Todts fashion career was born in 2000 when he started designing for fashion magazines.
He has designed everything from shoes to accessories and even designed a couple of pieces for the hit soap opera Big Love.
In 2014 he opened his own fashion boutique, Andrew Tods Studio, in a space he called “The Pinnacle”.
He has been working in the fashion industry for almost 10 years, but his passion for design and design design has been in demand for years.
In an interview with The Age in 2015, Andrew explained his inspiration for the name of his boutique: “It just sort of came to me, you know, the word ‘pinnacle’.”
In the beginning, I was a very visual person and it sort of took me a while to really get my feet wet with the art of the photograph, which I still do to this day.
“He told The Age that he got inspired by the way that fashion was photographed.”
I think when I started out I just wanted to make my own pictures, and I had all these little little bits of inspiration that were just coming to me.
“When the concept for the boutique was first announced in January this year, Andrew said it was a bit of a shock.”
It’s been a few years, I think it’s been three years, and there’s been some really great brands like Ralph Lauren, I guess Ralph Lauren.
“But really, I’ve been lucky to work with so many amazing people over the years.”
So I don’t really think about it too much.
“Andrew Tods studio in Brisbane in 2017.”
This is just a really nice place to work and a really cool place to live,” he said.”
And it’s just a place that you can relax and make the most of your time there, which you’ll find to be a very hard thing to do in this business.
“Andrew also told the Age that it’s a challenge for him to be surrounded by so many great designers.”
You have to really work hard, really love it and love the craft, and you have to take the time to really think it through.
“That’s a big challenge for me, because I’m really not in a position to do all of that.”
Andrew’s new boutique, the Pinnacle, has a number of elements that will set it apart from the rest of the boutique space.
It’s one of the first in Australia to have a design gallery inside the shop.
And it has a huge design collection, with more than 30 pieces on display.
“The whole thing about Andrew’s boutique is that you’re really in awe of his work,” Andrew said.
The store has been opened with a full staff of about 70 people, who are all wearing designer outfits that range from top to bottom.
Andrew said the inspiration for his new boutique came from the way he and his family were raised.
“My dad is a great artist and I think the inspiration of my life is to make something out of what we see around us,” he explained.
“He was really fascinated by the ways that people are creating things, and how they were using different materials and techniques and how their clothes could change in a moment.”
Andrew has also worked with some of Australia’s most famous designers.
He said he had worked with Alessandro Michele, Stella McCartney, and Gisele Bundchen, among others.
“There’s something about the way they all dress and how you’re exposed to them, and what they do, and the way their clothing changes in the moment,” Andrew explained.
Andrew also spoke about his personal favourite designer.
“Michele is so versatile.
He can do anything from a blazer to a suit, and he can also do something very elegant, and it’s so good for him.”
His clothing is always very clean, it’s always very minimal, he always wears it with pride and you feel like he’s doing it for you.
“Andrew told The Australian he is very proud of his career, and said that he has been able to create so much for the people who have supported him over the past 10 years.
