Walpole Press Day 2016

Walpole 2016 press day took place in Royal Institute of Great Britain on September. I know it is a bit late, but better late than never.

I was at the Walpole press day in 2016 and found some great British luxury brands. In particular, I was really impressed with the Brand of Tomorrow.

These brands are ones that will be very successful in the coming years. I can list some examples – Charlotte Olympia, Miller Harris, Bremont, Ormonde Jayne are some to watch out for.

Here are the Brand of Tomorrow from Walpole.
