072. HavetoLove

1-3 Hawthorn Road, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne

Who you need to know Owner Kate Walton

Brands include American Retro, By Malene Birger, Gestuz, Havetolove, K-Yen, MiH Jeans, StyleStalker, Victoria Beckham Denim

Brilliant customer service and a refusal to follow trends make womenswear indie HavetoLove inspiring, says owner Kate Walton.

Buyers keep a close eye on customers’ tastes by working on the shopfloor, so it’s no wonder the business was shortlisted for the Best Independent Retailer gong at the Drapers and Retail Week Paypal Etail Awards 2012.

This year, HavetoLove has launched its eponymous own-brand range of luxury cashmere and silver jewellery.
It has also invested in its online business, with product volumes increased and marketing and PR strategies implemented.

Walton is looking forward to an “exciting year ahead”, and plans to wholesale the HavetoLove brand.
