Henry Holland BA (Hons) (born 26 May 1983) is an English fashion designer, businessman and blogger from Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester. Holland gained attention with his bold, 1980s-inspired T-shirts that displayed catchphrases such as, "I'll tell you who's boss, Kate Moss" in the 2000s; Holland subsequently designed a full collection and founded his own fashion house.[1] He is well known for his work with model Agyness Deyn.[2]


Holland is a graduate of the London College of Communication and has worked for the following publications: the teenage magazine, Sneak (fashion section), Smash Hits and Bliss.[3][4]

Professional career


Prior to the launch of his own company, Holland gained attention with his Fashion Groupies T-shirt designs.[5]


In 2008, Holland launched the "House of Holland" fashion label.


In spring 2009, Levi Strauss & Co debuted a denim collaboration with Holland.[6]

In September 2009, Holland negotiated a deal with the British retailer, Debenhams, for the creation of a fashion line, "H! by Henry Holland"; the line was eventually sold in Debenhams stores from spring 2010.[7]


For Spring/Summer 2010 he designed a pink wedding dress exclusive to LA-based boutique REVOLVE Clothing under his House of Holland line.


Holland's 2011 collection features a number of T-shirts that display acronyms such as "waysb", meaning, "what are you sayin' babes".


In May 2012, Holland's collaboration with sunglasses company, Le Specs, was released. The collection, entitled "Henry Holland for Le Specs", featured sunglass models with names such as "Muffin Top" and "Blinders".[8] The collection campaign featured Australian hip-hop recording artist and model Iggy Azalea.[9]


Following the success of his first two eyewear campaigns starring Iggy Azalea and Ioanna Gika, Holland released his third eyewear campaign, this time featuring model and actress Adwoa Aboah. The range featured a design called 'Cagefighters'.[10]

Media appearances

In Autumn 2008 and Spring 2010, Holland co-presented T4's flagship fashion and music series, Frock Me, alongside Alexa Chung and Gemma Cairney.

In 2012 Holland starred as a judge on fashion design show Styled to Rock airing on Sky Living. The show, with Rihanna as executive producer took unknown British designers, giving them the opportunity to design for celebs such as Cheryl Cole, The Saturdays and Katy B. Henry's good friend and self named "muse" Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud fame was another judge on the show.

Celebrity clients

In February 2009, singer M.I.A. wore his black-and-white, polka dot tulle mini-design while heavily pregnant at the 51st Grammy Awards. The design was from the House of Holland spring/summer 2009 collection.[11]


Holland states that Nicola Roberts, of Girls Aloud fame, is his muse and hero.[12]
