Clare Bowden – Mandatory meets Miramar

Claire Mandatory - blue IMG_7630 This is the illustrious and industrious Clare Bowden, designer for one of Welly’s most iconic businesses, Mandatory Menswear. She along with business partner Fiona Edwards has been dressing men from around the country and beyond from their Cuba street store for 18 years now. In this interview Clare talks about what it is like being in the rag trade for men and how she got the zips into the armpits of Fat Freddy’s Drop horn player, Joe Lindsay’s suits, and why Mandatory are popping up in Miramar next week.
