The majority of our 22 brands are own brands and it remains our intention to continually expand this range by strategic acquisitions and by developing new brands in-house. In 2016, we acquired Whistles and the franchise rights to Colette and Next, rebranded Fashion Express as The FIX and launched SODA Bloc.

Our brands offer fashionability from relatively low‑risk to higher-risk fashion, and appeal to a broad customer base across a range of LSM groups:
