Designer and Topshop collaborator Peter Jensen on how he broke into the industry: "I didn't sit down and think, 'Oh I want to be a fashion designer'. I liked the technical part of it. There was a fat girl who lived next door and she couldn't really buy clothing anywhere, so I used to make her clothes and then charge her £3 for a top. She just kept on growing." [Independent UK]
