Business description

The company specialises in the sale of luxury apparel and products from a number of highly respected brands and designers, establishing a loyal client base and an exceptional reputation within the fashion industry.

Trading under a respected global brand, which is synonymous with quality and has cultivated a loyal following, the company operates from a dedicated
e-commerce website and through a leading online fashion marketplace, alongside its own retail store in a prominent city centre location.

Having built up a strong and highly respected business, the shareholders are now offering the company for sale to accelerate its expansion and to ensure that it achieves its full potential, whilst also supporting one of the shareholder’s retirement plans.

Highlights

  • Works with numerous established and up-and-coming designers to offer a wide range of high-end clothing products, including menswear, womenswear, footwear and accessories.

  • Long-standing international client base, benefitting from a high volume of repeat business, with approximately 68% of turnover being supplied by returning clients. 
  • Highly experienced management team in place, possessing extensive knowledge of the fashion market, which will play an invaluable role in driving further expansion. 
  • Operations are managed from head office premises based in North West England.
