About me

My name is Andre Shyllon-Leonard, better known as Dre. I am an enthusiastic, creative individual who loves nothing more than a chance to surpass my own expectations as well as others. These personality traits have helped me in so many aspects of my life, for example when I started my own clothing company back in 2012 after seeing fashion icons like Pharrell Williams, Asap Rocky and Jerry Lorenzo making statements through their brands, accessories and/or outfits. Alongside keeping up to date with all the latest clothing and accessory releases I am extremely interested in Photography – a subject I studied throughout college and at university. I have now finished my second year of studying Photography and will be entering my third and final year of my degree in September. One of the main reasons for wanting to study photography was simply that I could bring my creativity to life which also happens to be (in addition to the drive to provide exceptional customer service) that I have applied for this role and I aim to carry on in the wonderful field of fashion. I am an extremely dedicated person not just to my work, but to all things I take part in. This year, on top of raising money for several mental health organisations through volunteer work, I have started to develop my fashion brand further. In doing so I have increased my knowledge of the industry and products alike. I aim to grow myself into a better person daily by setting myself daily tasks and keeping log of my goals, achievements and improvements. I have no issue with listening and learning from others to gain more knowledge and as I am the oldest of three siblings, this has enabled me to execute leadership roles as well as enabling me to develop quick problem-solving skills and become an avid listener. In a nutshell, people would describe me as a go-getter, I put my all into the things I do and tasks I set for myself and I believe that, that drive is what will help me succeed in not just work but life itself. After all, “All out dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
