2014 was a landmark year for 22 year old belt designer and professional golfer Christian MacLeod. His first collection of belts was showcased to the world of luxury fashion in April last year. Since then his CM brand has been showcased in 182 magazines, earned him a nomination at the 2014 Scottish Fashion Awards as ‘Accessory Designer of the Year’ and seen celebrity support from former Open Champion Paul Lawrie, British actor James Sutton and professional footballer Derk Boerrigter amongst others.
Christian will give us a fascinating insight into his strategy for building the CM brand, the hurdles he faced to be accepted onto the worldwide fashion stage and how he set about reinventing ‘Miracle at Medinah’ Ryder Cup player Paul Lawrie as a fashion icon to feature in GQ magazine alongside the world’s most famous supermodels and brands.
