Global Design Team

Our talented design teams in the UK & Ireland, Europe and around the world thrive on creating fashion-forward pieces that your customers will respond to. They forecast trends and propose inspiring mood boards, as well as specific designs, including you in the design process.

Our global design team create innovative collections based on the latest trends, inspired by visiting exhibitions, shopping, immersing themselves in the fashion world and perusing professional literature. This way, the designers are capable of making personalised collections to meet the high standards of our customers.
