Scott Wimsett’s career in TV and online has spanned almost 20 years from early exposure hosting on MTV through to today being a firm favourite within the international fashion reporting circuit.
Having cut his teeth on ITN News and an exclusive with Vogue TV, Scott realised the true potential of informative and high-end fashion reporting online. Scott and his business partner, Sam Orams launched now internationally renowned Bespoke Film and Communications Agency, which today boasts a portfolio of some of the fashion world’s most visual campaigns and has worked closely with major fashion talent from Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne and Karl Lagerfeld with Scott securing the interview exclusives for international fashion portals.
As a fashion story breaks Scott and his agency are very often the chosen ‘go to’ digital film, communications and solutions agency to get the content full visibility. Scott is invited to be a regular voice on broadcast, print, web seminars and online media being asked to talk on the subject of fashion and has his own social commentating platform on Hello TV as its international fashion reporter called The Scott Report.
