Gok Wan’s overwhelming success in the fashion industry, encouraging women to love themselves no matter what shape or size they are has led him to be an institution on our screens. Not only has Gok appeared in a further five series of the award-winning show, he has also hosted three series of Gok’s Fashion Fix with a follow on series called Gok’s Clothes Roadshow; Get The Look For Less. And for all those lonely hearts out there looking for love and a makeover, Gok did not disappoint with his series Gok’s Style Secrets giving women countrywide the confidence to get back on the dating scene in style.

Known for his friendly and charismatic style, Gok is the perfect after-dinner entertainer or awards host and will be an ideal choice for a fashion themed event.

A regular face on our television screens, Gok’s far reaching repertoire has proved that he is more than a fashion expert. Taking on projects such as Hotel GB, and exploring his roots in the documentary Made in China, he has shown the nation a different side to himself. He has also filmed a moving documentary on child obesity Too Fat Too Young and explored the modern day issues our teenagers are facing including sexuality, online-bullying and eating disorders in a three-part series called Gok’s Teens: The Naked Truth.

Making his viewers think about their content, Gok has gone back to his roots and shown the world what his family does best in his cookery show Gok Cooks Chinese. Here we see Gok dispel the myths of Chinese cookery and explore what dishes you should really be eating in your Chinese takeaway.

Gok’s on screen popularity has led several highly-acclaimed books deals, spanning from his autobiography, cookery books, and fashion advice. Gok teaches women to love their bodies whatever shape or size. He has a collection in Sainsbury’s which is filled with bright and bold colours, which aims to make women feel fabulous.

Born on the 9th September 1974 in Leicester, Gok has worked in the fashion industry for the best part of a decade. Studying at London’s prestigious Central School of Speech and Drama, he found himself drawn to hair and make-up over drama, prompting his entrée into the fashion industry and gaining him early work as a hair and make-up artist on titles such as The Sunday Times Style.

Sixteen years on his talent and tenacity has seen him build up quite a pedigree: he has worked with some of the world’s most renowned photographers (Rankin, Mike Owen, Tony McGee, Jason Joyce, Elise Dumontet and Arthur Elgot), had his work published internationally (Glamour, The Face, The Times Style, Cosmopolitan, Afisha Mir and People Magazine US), amassed an enviable celebrity client-base (Bryan Ferry, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Vanessa Mae, Damien Lewis and All Saints to name a few) and consulted on a host of television shows including GMTV (ITV1), Battle of The Sexes (BBC1), TV Book Club (Channel 4), Desert Island Discs with Kirsty Young (Radio 4), How To Look Good – With A Difference (Channel 4) and The Friday Night Project (Channel 4).

Despite Gok’s growing status as one of the UK’s most sought-after stylists and fashion ‘gurus’, he remains far from blasé (though a little mischievous) about his achievements. He is above all down to earth, personable and highly knowledgeable in his field. A perfect after dinner speaker, Gok’s engaging manner can educate audiences on style and cookery, or entertain them with his wealth of showbiz anecdotes.
