Patrick Whitaker and Kier Malem have been work and life partners for several decades now and, although you may not know their name, you’re bound to have seen some of their work which includes superhero costumes, fashion and collaboration with Allen Jones.
As part of Open House London I volunteered to help at their live/workspace and ended up staying all day. It was a glorious autumn day, perfect for their roof garden and with a regular stream of visitors.
