Mark Dodds

Fabric Technician

November 28, 2023 - November 28, 2023   

Mark Dodds graduated from the University of Leeds in 2001 with a BA in textile management. Since then Mark has worked for various suppliers to the British fashion industry in technical and sourcing roles, travelling the world to source fabrics and working with garment making factories to make products sold to the British and US high street retailers.

In 2010 Mark partnered with Christopher Waller to set up a luxury womenswear fashion label. In doing this he gained experience working with small UK manufacturers, fabric suppliers, PR and sales agents and as a result knows first hand what it’s like to be a fashion start up and the challenges that they face. In 2012 Christopher Waller joined Fashion Scout and presented the collection during London Fashion week.

Mark now works as a consultant and has contracts working for ASOS.com, Charlotte Tilbury and Oliver Spencer, retaining Christopher Waller as a design consultancy business.
