'It's pretty top secret'

Josh doesn't mess about when it comes to ambition and he's aiming for the very top of the fashion industry.

"My biggest ambition is to be as big as Alexander McQueen and Chanel - I've always been interested in fashion."

It's pretty top secret but it's going to be the world's most expensive dress by a 13 year-old!

He says his mum's wardrobe is actually where it all started. "I was always really interested in all the textures and fabrics... and I'd just take them out and sketch them."
