Jeff has always been a massive supporter of new talent and representation of his home country Wales within the fashion industry.
Due to a conflicting schedule, he was unable to make Cardiff Fashion Week 2016.
Here’s a copy of the letter Jeff sent to everyone involved encouraging them to “have fun and do lots of business!”

I am writing to wish you the very best for Cardiff Fashion Week 2016.
While I cannot be there myself for the week, I hope that it will be a great opportunity for you all to come together and show the creative talent of Wales as a nation.
To have this moment to showcase your collections to the trade and your potential customers is a moment I know you will cherish.
I hope the buzz created by a fashion week on your home turf does wonders for your brand and the fashion design industry in Wales and a whole.
For many of you, I recognise that you are in the very early days of your fashion career.
Enjoy, have fun and do lots of business!
Best of luck to you all!
