Fashion and retail veteran Harold Tillman will be interviewed on-stage by Drapers editor Lauretta Roberts at the first Fashion Business Club (FBC) meeting of 2009.
Harold Tillman, the owner of Jaeger and department store Allders, and chairman of the British Fashion Council, will take to the stage on January 29 for a live interview followed by a Q&A with the audience.
The exact location of the London-based meeting, which takes place at 3pm, is to be confirmed.
Harold Tillman studied design at London College of Fashion in the 1960s and has had a long career in retail. He acquired Jaeger in 2003 and Croydon-based department store Allders in 2005 before accepting the role of chairman of the British Fashion Council in September 2008.
He is also passionate about helping future fashion generations and set up his own 1m scholarship at London College of Fashion and also has plans to launch the UK’s largest fund for designers in 2010 along with the British Fashion Council.
“With so much on his plate, Harold is a hard one to pin down. We’re really excited that he’ll be joining us on January 29 and look forward to hearing his plans for the industry and picking his brain on his entrepreneurial success,” said Courtney Blackman, co-chairman and founder of FBC.
