FOUNDER & CO-HOST

Simon Collins has a passion for getting smart people together to discuss important questions and create ideas you can actually do something with. He is a design thinker, speaker, writer, designer, advisor and creative seditionary. Following a career as fashion designer then creative director for some of the world’s leading brands in Europe, the US and Asia including Nike, Polo and Zegna. He then served 7 years as Dean of the School of Fashion at Parsons School of Design where he successfully brought together creativity, communication, business and innovation. The school went from being quietly respected to becoming a global power brand with huge success.

After stepping down from Dean and joining the Board of Parsons he formed The House of Collins advisory group to advise brands, companies, young designers, fashion weeks and governments. His advisory services are in high demand and he travels the world speaking about his adventures.

Identified as one of the first essential voices of global fashion by The Business of Fashion 500 and listed as one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business by Fast Company. He has been a regular in The New York Times, Vogue, WWD, CNN, NPR, WSJ and of course Page Six (not always in trouble). His 5 season show on Chinese CCTV6 had 5M weekly viewers and in 2014 he published his first book; ‘The School of Fashion’.

His live on stage Conversation interview series includes guests; Victoria Beckham, Francois-Henri Pinault, Ermenegildo Zegna and Proenza Schouler. He has spoken to many significant audiences including Cannes Lions and the United Nations in NYC.

Collins has brought all this experience together with some of the world’s smartest people to create Fashion Culture Design. 

He knows how to give the crowd what they want.
