“I think about the future and am involved in a lot of businesses that can carry me over after life as a footballer,”
Cahill’s current fashion venture is with British clothing company Shoreditch London, who he’s already established a relationship with, as a brand ambassador. Cahill recently decided to take a larger role with the company.
“I declined [Shoreditch London] that at the start and then started discussions about being involved in the business and driving the brand globally. I think about the future and am involved in a lot of businesses that can carry me over after life as a footballer.”
Next month, Shoreditch will launch the Shoreditch by Tim Cahill lifestyle range, a collection of t-shirts, jackets, and pants. The campaign photo shoot took place in various New York City locations including Central Park, The Meatpacking District, and SoHo.
We’ve been working really hard to make sure we [Shoreditch] bring something that is quite sleek but at the same time very sensitive to the market,”
