The fashion industry is in my blood and I have, over the many years in business always been interested in up and coming designers. I, like many others discovered Glen when he won the Melbourne Fashion festival Designer of the Year award. Over the years I have been working with Glen on many projects. He is top of mind when I need an expert, his tailoring skills, his flair for style, proportion and cut are exceptional. As a person his manor is warm and he always delivers a quality product within the agreed time frame."

If you ask Vincent LI how he feels working with ROLLASON BOWRING DESIGN he will say to is more of a collaboration. Since establishing the brand in 2014 he has been working with RBD on his emerging menswear brand. I love working with RBD as it’s an easy process of communication even though my designs are very technically challenging. They are very enthusiastic to be involved in all parts of the design process, which is rare in this industry. Because the designs are quite unconventional it requires the same type of thinking and approaches in developing the patterns and garments. Glen and Scott have a great depth of knowledge and expertise and I trust their sampling and finishing of their garments. Their patterns are always precise and helps prevent any production problems that could occur working in this level of design and manufacture."
