Loomah are excited to be a part of the 2018 edition of Great British Brands. Edited by one of the UK’s most iconic luxury commentators, Lucia Van der Post and published by Country & Town House, Great British Brands celebrates the finest products and companies that the UK has to offer. Featuring some of the most recognised and established luxury British brands as well as exciting up and coming faces of the future, it is an honour to sit alongside 149 of the UKs most talented and inspiring companies in this definitive guide to the world of luxury.
This year’s cover features model Laura Bailey wearing a one-off bespoke dress created exclusively by Alice Temperley especially for Great British Brands. The dress was auctioned at the Great British Brands party at the Hotel Café Royal to raise money for Women for Women International whom Alice has supported for the past 2 years. Since 1993, Women for Women International has been helping women survivors of war by providing them with the tools to help them choose their own future and rebuild their lives.
We are excited to share that our Managing Director, Andrew Cotgrove, won the stunning dress with his bid. “I am not sure what came over me” says Andrew, “but as a father to two daughters and a business owner working in an industry where I am surrounding by talented women I was really inspired to hear about the amazing work Women for Women International are doing to help women who have survived war rebuild their lives. I wasn’t exactly in the market for a new dress, but it was like something out of a fairy-tale and I just knew it would be something our family will treasure for years to come. I can’t tell you how excited my daughters are.”
