Super Agent


Graeme Black

Creative Director (Fashion)

What were you like at school?

I spent all my time in two departments… home economics (closest thing to fashion!) and Art. I was told at 14 years old that if I didn’t get good grades across all my subjects I would not be able to go to art school. Panic set in immediately and I got down to seriously studying Chemistry, English, Maths etc etc.
I ended up being a prefect and getting into St.Martins! It was really hard work to achieve my goals but in the end I really enjoyed school.

What inspires you about the Super Power Agency?

The power of literacy is such a wonderful skill which can help people achieve their dreams and enhance their everyday lives.The super power agency is an inspiring way to promote this essential skill.

What do you like most about Edinburgh?

My favourite aspect of Edinburgh is the glorious light and the wonderful architecture which lends a perfect back drop for my caped crusades!
