After art school Gordon began training as an illustrator for advertisers, boutiques and the fashion industry including burgeoning designer Diane Pernet. He also worked in the art department of The Limited Company creating "flats" - sketches for fashions sold at mass market retailers. He collaborated with Carl George on a showroom design for Yumi Katsura – Japan’s pre-eminent wedding gown designer and on the fashion show launch event featuring a young Brooke Shields closing the show wearing her first wedding gown. Gordon designed the stage and room decor for one of the first AIDS fundraising events for the Henry Grethel menswear line in 1986.
