Two Chichester stores, including 56a East Street, Chichester

Who you need to know Owner Matt Horstead

Brands include Armani Jeans, Dior Resort, DSQUARED2, Hugo Boss, Just Cavalli, Paul Smith, Stone Island, Vivienne Westwood

This menswear mecca rounded off a successful 2012 - in which it was ‘Highly Commended’ in the Premium Independent Retailer of the Year category at the Drapers Fashion Awards - with a 10% year-on-year increase in turnover and the most successful Christmas trading that owner Matt Horsted has seen in 15 years.

He puts this down to a successful social media strategy, an inspiring brand mix and a store that “offers bags of character”.

Horsted adds: “We are installing new technology in store, updating our website, and we may seek larger premises later in 2013.”
