Soon thereafter his design and mechandising talents garnered him such retail clients as Bergdorf Goodman, Andre Oliver, Valentino and Chanel. Along with his work in display and interior design, Currie was consulted on numerous high-profile print and television advertising campaigns, most notably for the Calvin Klein Obsession commercials, as well as work in the developing medium of video.
