Palmer//Harding aka The Shirt Boys

In the East end of London, near Old Street, resides the studio of fashion designers Matthew Harding and Levi Palmer of Palmer//Harding, aka The Shirt Boys. A merging of creative minds from Dallas and London, this innovative duo—alumni from Central Saint Martins, have finely-tuned their skills in the form of wearable, everyday styles in shirts.

Levi returned home to Texas this past December to visit his family for the holidays, along with Matthew, his British business and life partner. With a pit stop in Dallas to visit the newly opened Forty Five Ten where their line is carried, I joined them for lunch at the store’s restaurant Mirador for a chat.

Much to be Excited About with MTV RE:DEFINE + Dallas Contemporary

The beginning of a New Year always feels so invigorating, new goals, new challenges and new adventures. For me, I’m super excited about two projects that I care about, both involving art and philanthropy—the Dallas Contemporary and MTV RE:DEFINE.

Works of art at MTV RE:DEFINE 2016 art auction and gala

My friend Joyce Goss executive director of the Goss-Michael Foundation and her brother-in-law co-founder Kenny Goss (co-founded with the late George Michael), last year asked if I would chair my favourite gala MTV RE:DEFINE! More to come on this topic, but needless to say, I emphatically agreed and since then I’ve been working with Joyce and the MTV RE:DEFINE team towards developing a fantastic event on Friday, March 24, at the Dallas Contemporary, so save the date.
