Adam is an established stylist, costume designer, fashion editor and consultant, always searching for new looks and ideas, he absorbs influences and inspiration from his immediate surroundings and from detailed research.

Adam began work assisting Judy Blame in the 1980s and swiftly became contributing fashion editor at i-D, The Face and Arena Homme Plus, where his influential street styling, casting and location work brought realism and personal nuance to the fore.

At the core of his work is a fascination with textiles, their heritage and contemporary interpretation. In Autumn 2011 Adam established menswear label ‘Work Not Work’, with Simon Taylor ( Tomato ) with a flagship store opening Spring 2013 in Maranouchi, Tokyo.
