It was wonderful to bump into Herbie at Portobello Rd market earlier this year & this time we organised to make this video for the blog (shot in June).
Herbie became virtually the (male) ‘face’ of Vivienne after his first appearance modelling in the Nostalgia of Mud/Buffalo Girls collection of 1982 & then the subsequent Punkature, Witches, Hypnos & Clint Eastwood collections.
In the interview he explains the chain of events that led to this & some of his experiences at the time.
He also kindly gave us access to his portfolio & a selection from this you will find below.
There used to be a photo of Herbie on the wall in Worlds End shop but it seems to have disappeared since it’s re-opening last year…
You will find him at Portobello on Fridays & Saturdays, under the canopy.
