Wayne _hemingwayWe are very excited to announce our 2017 Awards ceremony host Wayne Hemingway (MBE), Co-founder of fashion label Red or Dead and HemingwayDesign.

Starting out at a second-hand fashion stall in Camden market, Wayne's big break into housing design arose from a scornful piece he wrote for The Independent. Since then, his no-nonsense Northern directness partnered with his kooky punk style and instinctive working ethos have contributed to the enormous success of Red or Dead's controversially playful street style. The result? In 1999, Wayne sold his company in a multi-million pound deal, having created one of the strongest British brands of the 90s.

Shortly after, Wayne and his partner (in marriage and business) Gerardine set up HemingwayDesign, which has created affordable new build housing schemes, 'turned around' troubled estates, and instigated a host of impactful seaside regeneration projects.

Although he had studied Geography and Town Planning at University College London, Wayne had no experience of the construction industry. Working with house builder Wimpey in 2005 he created the Staithes South Bank, an 800-unit development In Gateshead, Tyne and Wear. This was the first in a series of award-winning building projects that includes: Dartford, Manchester, Maidenhead, Bournemouth, King's Lynn, Skelmersdale and Whitehaven.
