Intern magazine profiles Jacob Kane as he graduates University and releases his first collection.

"Graduating this summer, receiving the BA Foundation Scholarship award from the British Fashion Council, starting his own contemporary menswear brand and creating and selling his first collection, it’s clear that Jacob Kane’s talent and motivation is already making him hot property.

Growing up in Preston reading fashion journals such as DAZED and i-D,Jacob started to show an interest in putting outfits together and trying to emulate the style of musicians he looked up to. This combined with his interest in art and drawing eventually came to a head when he made the decision to carve out a career in the fashion industry.

The fashion design course at Manchester Fashion Institute is where Jacob really utilised his artistic background to develop the research led design that is now the focus of his brand, as well as the core skills involved in clothing design. “I realise now how clueless I was about the industry prior to going to uni” he tells us, “I’d been reading magazines for years beforehand, but there’s no substitute for the real thing”." - Intern Magazine.
