Simon Rees trained in the 80's at the world-class jewellery school, Sir John class in London, completing with a very high degree and a number of prizes. His early career saw him working under his own label producing small collections for global designer outlets, most notably Harrods, Charivari’s in New York and a number of outlets in Japan. During this period, he collaborated with a number of designers, most famously Alexander McQueen, the results of which were a number of catwalk pieces recently featured in the V&A exhibition; Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. All of this work was designed and produced within his highly successful studio & shop in the famous Columbia Road flower market which he ran for 25 years before opening Rees & Rees
