Roland Mouret is excited to announce his return to London Fashion Week to mark his 20th anniversary as a Designer. He returns to London where he first started, launched his eponymous brand and presented his very first collection.
Having shown in Paris for the past 10 years, the brand returns in February 2017 to showcase its Autumn/Winter 2017 collection in the fashion capital, where it all began.
The February show in London will highlight the beginning of a year-long celebration marking out Roland’s incredible journey over the last two decades.
“I love that London is my creative home and over half my manufacturing base is in Britain – I wouldn’t be able to do what I do anywhere else other than London. London is my home, it’s where my brand has its heart and I’m excited to celebrate such an important milestone here.” Roland Mouret
For almost twenty years, Mouret has created the most coveted of womenswear collections, defining the era of the iconic dress. His dexterity has earned him the title ‘Master of the Silhouette’, with each of his designs encapsulating an intuitive understanding of the female form.
Roland Mouret operates a wholesale network spanning over 38 countries and almost 200 doors worldwide, with retail flagships on London’s Mount Street and New York’s Madison Ave, as well as a franchise in Dubai Mall, UAE. The brand’s website relaunched in 2014 and has experienced exponential triple digit percentage growth over the last two years and is expected to become the brand’s largest retail door by the end of 2017.
Over the course of 2015 and 2016, the brand’s turnover has increased by 24% and 22% respectively. EBITDA is forecasted to have increased by a staggering 263% by the end of 2016, rounding off an incredible period of expansion for the company.
“We look forward to the year ahead in London as an incredible opportunity to not only celebrate the history of the brand and Roland’s journey, but also as an opportunity to engage further with our customer and the industry in a key piece of storytelling with hopefully a few surprises along the way.”, says Roland Mouret’s CEO Mark Langthorne.
The Roland Mouret fashion brand is a joint venture between Roland Mouret and Simon Fuller’s XIX entertainment.
