UK managing director, Children Worldwide Fashion
A new entry this year, Kevin Thompson led the UK arm of French kidswear giant Children Worldwide Fashion (CWF) into the retail arena in 2009.
The launch of Atelier de Courcelles in Westfield London marked CWF’s UK retail debut, a diversification Thompson believes will strengthen the company’s UK business by offsetting a less predictable wholesale market. However, wholesale sales also continue to grow.
CWF won the licence for Hugo Boss kidswear earlier this year and Thompson has already kicked off a spring 10 relaunch for the brand.
