I started King & Tuckfield for two reasons. First, because I was obsessed with how denim and merino can shape genderless shapes - from WWII underpinnings to coal mine uniforms and ballet tops - and second because I was always inspired by my family’s favourite pass time. Ballet. The two things were linked from the beginning in my mind. I was never a good dancer (let alone a ballet dancer), but I am dazzled by the intensity of dance and swayed by the exploits of my family through the bleak years of 40s and 50s and their impeccable dress sense, alongside the attire of famous dancers from that era.
