Bolongaro Trevor set to expand after deal

Young fashion brand Bolongaro Trevor is primed for expansion after signing a deal with supplier The Fielding Group.

The deal, which was finalised in January, means the brand now outsources the management of all its production, warehousing and logistics to The Fielding Group, a garment designer and manufacturer which has global sourcing offices.

Co-founder Stuart Trevor said the brand had been growing steadily over the past couple of years. However, due to issues with funding, it had been unable to reach its full growth potential across both retail and wholesale.

With The Fielding Group now focusing on production, finance and distribution, Trevor said it would allow the brand to put money into expanding the business where previously it would have been needed for production and warehousing costs.

“Now we have this production partnership it will allow us to expand the business dramatically without having to worry too much about logistics,” he said. “We’ll still be working with the better existing suppliers and [The Fielding Group] will have people on the ground in India and China who are making sure if there are any problems they get solved.”

Trevor said the brand would build on its design, marketing and retail strengths. Bolongaro Trevor had also been in talks with several different investors about ploughing money into the brand, he added. Despite the production and logistics operations being outsourced, Trevor said there would be no redundancies.

The brand, which has two stores in London, is set to open two further standalone stores in the next six months and is scouting out locations in Leeds and London. The deal with The Fielding Group will “allow us to work closely with the management in stores, which also helps increase sales,” said Trevor.
