Having built up and sold one of the UK’s first rapid prototyping businesses Gordon Styles, CEO of Star Prototype and an entrepreneurial engineer from London, became so frustrated with the difficulty of financing subsequent ventures that he fled to China to apply his expertise there. From that rapid growth, investment-ready nation, Mr Styles observes the environment for manufacturing in the UK with disappointment.
I asked Jerry to help me write a short Bio on him for ZSRenn. He has been apart of my life since my day one in Zhongshan and is a great contributor to ZSRenn. What I got was a 500,000 word short story which was great to read but just a little to long for the Renn.
When I approached Gary about writing this spotlight story on him he suggested that I knew the whole story and to go ahead. But I wanted some more precise information and met with him on his balcony over a few beers.
I visited Cengiz in his showroom for the interview. I had previously visited his factory and been involved and attended his opening. I was impressed with the shop, how he did things and the fashion, shoes, bags and accessories he offers. Cengiz had also introduced me to his philosophy of fashion.
