Walpole is pleased to announce entries are now open for the 2016 Walpole Brands of Tomorrow programme, in association with Mishcon de Reya. The programme sets out to nurture and support the next generation of British luxury brands, providing them with bespoke learning and coaching as well as access to Walpole’s established membership. Since its inception in 2007, over 75 emerging luxury brands have benefited from the programme including Astley Clarke, Miller Harris, Charlotte Olympia, Business of Fashion and Mr Hare.
To be eligible, companies must have an annual turnover of a minimum of £100,000 and demonstrate the highest standards of quality, design and craftsmanship, together with an aspiration to develop into full Walpole members. Once entries have closed on Wednesday 28th October 2015, a shortlist of successful applicants will be invited to present their business plans to the selection panel – the final 12 brands will be unveiled at an exclusive launch event at The Savoy in January where they will be partnered up with a mentor. More information can be found on the Walpole website (www.thewalpole.co.uk).
