PANEL SPEAKERS

Pretty Lavish

Sister duo Stephanie and Samantha Frost are the founders behind Pretty Lavish. Sat in their living room after a bad day in their corporate jobs in 2013, they decided to launch Pretty Lavish. With an unbreakable bond, the combination of one business head and one creative head, and a burning passion and motivation to make Pretty Lavish a success, they were set for a great partnership and an exciting future. As the brand grows from strength to strength, their vision remains the same – they believe in making beautiful clothes at beautiful prices while offering the best quality possible.

Wicker Wings

Launched in 2014 by England based sibling duo Belinda and James Yu, Wicker Wings is a tale of family tradition with contemporary fashion, blending the Chinese artisanal art of wicker weaving started by their grandmother. Every bag is ethically made at their studio in England.

Nosakhari

Born in Nigeria and based in London, having dropped out of college at the age of 16, Nosa is inspired everyday by his surroundings. His creative side started at an early age at school where he wondered how the ‘cool kids’ appeared to make the same standard uniform look so different. Nosa then decided to incorporate accessories into his outfits, enabling him to bring his own personal style to the fore. This insight gradually developed into the launch of his brand Nosakhari and his quest for originality and boldness became the label philosophy.

Folk Clothing

Founder and designer Cathal McAteer’s career in menswear began as a teenager in Glasgow, working his way from the shop floor to his own design studio in London and launching Folk Clothing in 2002. Folk clothing focuses on the quality, textures and characteristics of the fabrication and trims in all their pieces and progress as a team with their minds and eyes wide open.
