The film's directors have commissioned the designer to study Hendrix's clothing for the new film which is yet-to-be titled.

A graduate from the London College of Fashion, Medford was awarded the Best Street Wear award last year at the UK Fashion awards. "I'm very excited about working on the Jimi Hendrix biopic. He was a true innovator of both music and fashion and I am looking forward to becoming part of his legacy," he said. [source]
