“We were inspired by the fashion industry and its idea of a buildable and interchangeable staple wardrobe.

“The beauty of having a core range of products that are all interchangeable is that it can be immensely time-saving; we understand the pressures on today’s designers means that time and cost are two key decision-making factors,” explains Helen Thomson, Commercial Division Manager at mac+.
