Alex Monroe

  • London
  • The Alex Monroe brand was established in 1987, when Alex set up his first studio in South London to design and make jewellery. Over twenty years on, the demand for Alex�s jewellery is now worldwide, being sold through such fashion institutions as Liberty, Harrods and Net-A-Porter. Stores and boutiques across the UK frequently sell out, with many pieces gaining waiting list status. In 2001, Alex decided to turn his sights on home and concentrate on building his brand in the UK. There are now over 100 shops selling Alex Monroe jewellery across the UK and Ireland. From little shops in the Orkney Islands, to the V&A Museum shop, the jewellery has become a firm favourite. Alex�s designs are now the top-selling brand in many outlets, including Liberty in London.

Agent Provocateur

  • London
  • The British lingerie retailer Agent Provocateur was started in 1994 by Joseph Corré, son of Vivienne Westwood, and his now ex-wife Serena Rees. Their first store was launched that year in London's Soho district, on Broadwick Street in 1994. The couple’s aim was to sell high-end lingerie. Rees had grown tired of seeing women wear dull underwear and had the idea to found a lingerie shop packed with bright and trendy undergarments. The pair’s initial objective was to offer the finest lingerie from across the globe. As they were unable to locate enough of what they liked, they made the decision to found their very own brand. Rees and Corré crafted a strict confidentiality agreement in order to protect their clients. The celebrity community has been warmly receptive to the brand since its inception and as a result the company uses celebrity models for the majority of its advertising campaigns. Following Corré and Rees' 2007 divorce, the private equity house 3i bought Agent Provocateur for £60m. The company is presently run by chief executive Garry Hogarth. In the wake of the takeover, the brand spread into 13 countries, with more than 30 stores. The cost of expansion led to the company’s profits dropping 18pc to £2.2m by March 2008.
