Touker Suleyman invests in ethical footwear brand

Dragon’s Den star Touker Suleyman has invested an undisclosed amount of money in ethical footwear brand DocksRio.

The London-based brand, which is inspired by Brazil, was founded by Leo Durlanti in 2011. Duranti learned the trade from his father, who owned a hand-made footwear business in Brazil.

Suleyman, who owns Jermyn Street shirtmaker Hawes & Curtis and womenswear brand Ghost, was introduced to the business through the Prince’s Trust.

He said: “Docks Rio gives a new aspect to my fashion portfolio. These are timeless, sustainable and hand-made shoes crafted for the modern man.”
