NKD Clothing Boss Loves Her Work – Truly, Madly, Depp-ly

Committed clothing boss Gill Eastgate can rarely leave work behind – even when on holiday.

During a recent  two week holiday in the US she was delighted to find herself casting an approving eye over the threads worn by Hollywood A-lister, Johnny Depp.

Gill, boss of Edinburgh-based NKD Clothing was in Chicago with husband Raymond Foreman when they spotted an excited crowd gathering outside the Sheraton Towers hotel as they checked in.

When they investigated they found out it was for the premiere of new 1920s gangster flick, Public Enemies, with the star himself on the red carpet.

With a sudden rush of blood to the head Gill barged forward and shouted: “Johnny! I’m from Scotland!”

It worked – and the smartly-dressed star made a beeline for Gill and politely asked where exactly she was from, before telling her: “Edinburgh, huh? It’s a really beautiful city.”

Desperate to get a memento of her brush with a superstar, Gill asked the diminutive actor to sign her arm before announcing to him: “That’s a really nice suit, by the way.”

Back home in Edinburgh, Gill admits that after five years building up her £1.3 million corporate couture business, it was the handsome star’s clothing which most impressed her.

She added: “He’s very good looking but much smaller than I would have expected. But his suit was beautifully  cut and in a real quality fabric. I know it’s a bit sad, but that’s what really caught my eye.”
