So says Olivier Zahm on Purple Diary today. I must confess to ignorance – before the Dior Homme show in Paris in January I had never heard of Aaron De Mey. Michael Whittaker and I met him backstage at the show and we all had a good laugh listening to our three accents combined. But since that day, I’ve seen his name everywhere. Everywhere! Magazines, newspapers, on a 1996 New Zealand fashion awards video tape, and now, today, on the Purple Magazine blog. Talented, in high demand and a nice guy to boot. Go the Kiwis!

    Aaron IS nice – humble, talented and extremely hard working. Totally committed to his craft, always pushing himself to think outside the square. That’s why he’s risen to the heights he has.
