Jeff Pearce was Born in the Slums of Liverpool in 1953 and from the moment he could walk he worked with his mother selling secondhand clothes on a market stall. Leaving school at the age of fourteen, unable to read or write, he embarked on an amazing journey that would see him make and lose millions in the rag trade before winning the highest accolade the fashion business had to offer. He is now retired. His struggles in life and his eventual success are wonderful reading.
