Magnus Walker is a one-off. He hasn’t broken the mould as he doesn’t believe there is one to break. Magnus is a serial entrepreneur, fashion designer, TV presenter and one of the world’s most prolific Porsche collectors.
After moving to the US from the UK, he started going to yard sales and flea markets and buying up jeans and customising them. Business grew to a stage where a factory was required and a new brand of rock-inspired fashion was born. The purchase of a warehouse in downtown LA in the late Nineties, paid for out of money generated from his clothing brand Serious Clothing, served as the next catalyst for success.
Derelict to begin with, the building would go on to become (again through spotting an opportunity where others might not) a film and television location studio. Walker’s fame comes not from his success in fashion or property, but his love of Porsche. Rather than simply collecting cars, of course, the man from Sheffield customises them as only he knows how.
He is the embodiment of idiosyncratic success and his TED talk demonstrates this to perfection. He is inspirational, sharing his journey of leaps of faith, going with his gut feeling and remaining motivated and dedicated to the end goal.
