We've been reflecting a lot lately on the people that have influenced the growth of Fallow since our beginnings in 2008... The following people have become our most loyal customers and dearest friends over the years, and continously inspire us to offer something different each season.
We thought you deserved to know a little bit about them too...
My fashion sense comes from… picturing a style, then developing it.
My last fashion indulgence was… a few pieces from the Milieu collection by Song for the Mute. Couldn't resist, awesome collection.
Gary: Rei Kawakubo - Amazing Japanese vision of turning fabric into style through mending, blending, and gender-bending.
Dean: I am always fascinated by David Hockney... and also Kate Bush and Chloe Sevigny stand out in my mind.
The Best thing about what I do is?
Gary: Working with people with passion and commitment, plus meeting all types of people who reaffirm that through quiet honesty and kindness plus application of my training, you can make profound differences in their lives.
Dean: Harnessing a creative impulse to help others communicate something.
I've got too many?
Dean: T-shirts/thoughts in my head at any one time.

I’m working on... making it to the end of the week without spending my pay cheque.
My friends would buy me a... pair of Damir Doma boots from his latest collection. (If you're reading this my birthday is in November, just saying).
My friends would buy me a… my friends will usually ask me what I want before buying me anything, I'm particularly hard to buy for. But otherwise Beatles memorabilia or anything to do with 50s, 60s music is a safe bet.
Lately I am listening to… As I said in the last question I'm a huge fan of 50's and 60's music. Artists like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and 70's punk bands like The Stooges and The Clash are definitely up there for me. I don't usually enjoy current day music but I love Radiohead also. I could list so many bands there wouldn't be any room left, but a few of my favourite songs include Come Together - The Beatles, Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd, Imagine - John Lennon, Search and Destroy - Iggy and the Stooges and Idioteque - Radiohead.
The last place I visited… was Brisbane Powerhouse, the band 'Inland Sea' have a residency there every friday night at 6pm during July. Bliss.
I am…. looking forward to my friends from 'Inland Sea' releasing thier new album that they are recording. Thier previous EP 'Traitor' is on iTunes and can be picked up at JB Hi-Fi.
