What other independent stores do you admire?

Industry insiders share their thoughts.


Sarah Murray
I really admire Browns on South Molton Street, London. Like Jane Davidson, it’s a family-run business and long-established. It is always innovative and forward thinking, and has been so successful in branching into other areas such as bridalwear.

Jo Davies
There are a few I really admire: Mimi Noor in Bath, Nola in Brighton, Marianna in Ipswich, Morgan Clare in Harrogate, Foundation in Cheltenham and Bernard Boutique in
Esher. They all know their customer inside-out and fully support other indies. They are run by great ladies too and we’ve become good friends.

Paul Lown
I love Start on Rivington Street, east London. I really admire its suiting; it’s very slick and just really nice. It’s also laid out very well. It has two stores and I just think they are both brilliant.

Keith Ewing
I think Signature in Aberdeen is very focused on its customer. It’s stocked some of its brands for a long time and seems to have its finger on the pulse when it comes to the customer. It’s very well-merchandised and has really got the brands right for the market.
