A few months ago, James was approached by High End, a popular fashion magazine in Indonesia of all places. James was thrilled to be involved and we were as well when we heard that they were interested in running a featured interview with him. They interviewed the stylist/editor about tips for the spring and summer along with how he broke into the industry almost a decade ago. Time flies when you’re being fabulous. Indonesia has a budding fashion scene with talented designers and editors and is quickly popping up on the radar of the fashion industry. James was happy to be considered by High End’s editorial staff for their April 2015 issue especially because it’s their 7th anniversary issue. You can purchase the digital copy here. Sadly the print version is only available in Indonesia.
