The fashion industry lost one of its stalwarts last month. Digby Crompton the head of Parisian Neckwear was well known throughout the fashion industry. His lively interest in all things fashion and lovely sense of humour will be sadly missed, never more so than by the team at Apparel. His willingness to pass on his knowledge and unwavering support of the magazine from the very early days was always appreciated.

Digby passed away peacefully surrounded by his family. Our sincere condolences to Digby's family.

His friendship and laughter will be sadly missed.
