All Hail the British Retail Indies

I love it when you see our great British Retail Indies get the recognition they deserve. British boutiques need and deserve an everyday in the media spotlight besides the usual heavies. It like treasure hunting and finding a winner. As an ex fashion agent it’s our job to know who they are, what they do and how they are doing. Getting the media exposure in the majors is not always easy as both require precious commodities. Time is money and money is time.

Here I give kudos to DARKEST STAR and LUNA & CURIOUS

DARKEST STAR found in 2008 by Sam Cook and Andy D’Cruze have been nominated for BBC3 Entrepreneurial Challenge who and a Fashion lottery clothing item with a “Hmmm! Twist’ (wink, wink) See the well explained video

LUNA & CURIOUS Established in 2006, have been named in this week’s Sunday Style magazine lists as The New Generation for British Cool. They are an inspired collective that offer inquisitive objects and wonderfully sourced clothing. They have two great boutiques in London, the flagship store is on Calvert Avenue, Shoreditch and one at the Sanderson Hotel in W1.

Yeah! Round of applause and MORE PLEASE!
