WINNER: OLIVIA BURTON
After launching with Harvey Nichols as its first UK stockist, Olivia Burton now boasts a plethora of iconic retailers in this country and around the world including Selfridges, Topshop, ASOS, John Lewis, Nordstrom and De Bijenkorf.
This year it has enjoyed substantial success and growth, not least because of launching the brand with Nordstrom in the US and Canada. The initial sales response has been strong and several styles sold out over the launch weekend. It continues to target international markets and has found itself in Hong Kong as hub of its push into Asia.
The business has grown 41% in the past year, moved into new premises in Shoreditch, and doubled its full time staff to more than 24 employees. In a natural progression for the brand, November will see Olivia Burton debuting a jewellery collection with six key retailers.
