A FORMER Formby High School pupil who has been making a name for himself in the highly competitive world of fashion has branched out by launching a global talent management agency.
Last year the Champion revealed that Freedom Doran, 18, was turning on the style by launching his own clothing company - just months after he landed the leading role in a TV drama series aged just 14... and all this after successfully battling stomach cancer.
The teenager featured in the Sky 10-part thriller ‘The Five’ in April 2016, when he played the younger version of main character Danny in flashback scenes.
He then launched his own clothing company, Marzenie, a collection of t-shirts, hoodies, caps and swimwear, later that year but had to close it in November 2017 when, aged 15, he was diagnosed with lower stomach cancer at Alder Hey Children's Hospital.
Freedom had an operation and endured six months of intense chemotherapy treatment. Not to be deterred, he started planning a new fashion, home and beauty company, Nethrial while also studying for his GCSEs. Less than a week after his chemotherapy treatment ended in May 2018, he took his exams, achieving 3A*s, 4As and 2Bs.
He then made the decision to fully focus on Nethrial and attended London Fashion Week and the London Fashion Week Men’s shows and trade events in London to Berlin, meeting a host of big name celebrities on the way. Nethrial, a one-stop online shop for 13-34 year olds, was finally launched online in February 2019 with a Manchester launch party.
He launched 22 impact on June 1, which is the second addition to the Nethrial group.
Freedom, who was also named as the winner of the Special Young Person Award at the Pride of Formby Awards, told the Champion: “I am so excited to launch ‘22 impact.’
“It is something that I’ve been working on for a little while and am excited to bring my knowledge of multiple industries, contacts and communication to help grow others and be in the forefront of their successes.”
