Who you need to know Managing director John Reid

Brands include Comme des Garçons, Dior, McQ by Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood

Since opening in 2010, luxury indie Garment Quarter has become a destination retailer for the most sought-after
designer labels.

For managing director John Reid, the store’s buying strategy sets it apart: “The buying team have a unique strategy of merging commerciality with the avant-garde.”

Last year, the Bristol store added Vivienne Westwood’s Red Carpet Collection and Victoria Beckham’s Victoria range to the mix.

The success of the store and its website allowed parent company Zagal to expand in 2012, partnering with Vivienne Westwood to open the brand’s first franchise store in Cardiff.

“Doing things the right way for the past two years has helped the company achieve one of our long-term goals,” says Reid.
