He's worked as a stylist for celebrities like Beyonce, Jessica Alba and Miranda Kerr, travels across the country doing a lot of fashion-related talk show appearances, he owns his own jewelry line called Mr. Warburton and is about to launch a new magazine under the same name.
Derek has also done a lot of philanthropic work in LA and across the country. So much so -- he was recently honored with the Style Ambassadorship Award by the city of Los Angeles.
He credits a lot of his hustle and career ambition to a difficult childhood. He suffered from homelessness and depression as a teenager, and as an adult has worked hard for all the things he has achieved. In speaking openly about his adversity, he hopes someone out there also struggling can relate and know they aren't alone.
Derek joined me on Olympic & Bundy to talk about everything from his struggles as a teen, to breaking into the fashion and magazine industries, to various experiences in life that shaped him into the person he is today.
