Hey, I’m Cameron, an industrial designer

Hi, I'm an industrial designer based in London and Paris. I graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2021. I am interested in simple, beautifully made, functional objects that enhance everyday life. I focus a lot on the details and the quality of the materials and take inspiration from a wide range of sources. I am open-minded, and I have experience in other areas, including engineering, fashion design and fashion history, graphic design, app and web design and development, which are advantageous and beneficial in my industrial design pursuits.

Curriculum Vitae

2016-Today

Secundo Store

I am the founder and director of Secundo Store, a top 50 archive fashion store. We curate thousands of items and have the biggest collection of Maison Martin Margiela and Hermes by Martin Margiela for sale in the world. And come very close to also being the biggest collection of Ann Demeulemeester, Dior by Hedi Slimane, Helmut Lang, Dries Van Noten, Vetements, Comme Des Garçons, Raf Simons among other brands. We are official partners of Grailed and Heroine where we sell exclusively.

Secundo Store is the destination store for thousands of fashion-lovers including many celebrities, world-class athletes and museums across the world looking for extremely rare and sought after items. We regularly get highly limited items, rare 1980's, 1990's or 2000's pieces and even unreleased samples from brands Dior, Ann Demeulemeester, Balenciaga, 1017-ALYX-9SM, Vetements, Raf Simons, Calvin Klein 205W39NYC and Kiko Kostadinov. Apart from some rare exceptions, we exclusively sell items in a good condition or of museum grade.

Thanks to my in-depth experience in the fashion industry, I work to archive brands' heritage, as well as having the chance to consult for companies and private collections.

We only use recycled and recyclable or biodegradable packaging. And the carbon emissions linked to all the parcels we ship and receive are offset.
