We came from completely different worlds. I was raised near Cambridge, England. I worked full-time as a model after graduating from university, and travelled the world for my work. Marco was a talented skier and lived in the mountains of Sauze d’Oulx, Italy, where we live now, working for his family business on the ski mountain.
Murray Crane, director of premium New Zealand menswear brand Crane Brothers, visits Italy at least once a year to meet with suppliers. We asked him about his love of Italian sartorial craftsmanship and his latest trip.
How long have you been in Fashion and what was the inspiration to start Victor Bridesmaid? My interest in fashion started from a young age (as soon as I could sew!) and after completing a Fashion Diploma in Wellington, I began my fashion career in 1999 with Keith Matheson. I was inspired to start ViCTOR when my friends started getting engaged and came to me for help with their dresses after struggling to find dresses in the retail shops.
