Profile of fashion conscious Patrick McDowell from Young Apprentice 2012

Upcoming fashion designer Patrick McDowell is one of this year’s contestants competing on the BBC’s Young Apprentice series.

Patrick’s fashion credentials could well be tested by Lord Sugar on the show but we will have to wait and see if the lad from Cheshire have what it takes to make a successful business with his fashion ideas.

He said: “If I want something done it will be done and I don’t accept no for an answer.”
