Designer Ashley Hicks has built a career out of carrying on his father's legacy, while simultaneously developing his own unique style.

His career as designer-decorator was launched to media-acclaim in 1954 when the British magazine House & Garden featured the London house he decorated, 22 South Eaton Place, for his mother, Iris, and himself; at the time Hicks was drawing cereal boxes for the advertising firm J Walter Thompson.
