MY MISSION IS… DYLAN JONES ON BEING THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF BRITISH GQ

A podcast series cohosted by Mission’s founder Karina Givargisoff, and singer song writer of the UK band Texas, Sharleen Spiteri.

This week we speak with Dylan Jones, editor-in-chief of British GQ and the chair of London Fashion Week Men’s who is often credited for being integral to its success.  In this raw, humorous and multi-dimensional conversation you’ll hear about the nostalgia of growing up in the late 70 early 80s, as Dylan fondly remembers being obsessed with pop culture and drawn to London as the nucleus for self-expression and the ability to reinvent yourself.

We discuss everything from the sounds of his youth, his perspective on fashion and history, his connection to writing as a force for good, and how the desire of self-expansion is embedded in human nature. Let’s not forget to mention when he tells us about the time in 1984 when his ex-girlfriend chopped up five bags of his designer clothes!

Dylan’s career began at I-D Magazine in 1983, following other notable positions at Arena,The Face,The Observer Magazine and The Sunday Times. With all conversationalists engaged with writing as part of their career, Dylan sheds light on the fact that writing, like anything is a learnt skill, which when harnessed is incredibly powerful.

This is a conversation you want to tune into and end by feeling inspired.
