We introduced you to these two glamorous ladies in last year’s Hot 100 as part of the section tipping new talent, and what a year they have had since then.
Olivia Burton has gone from strength-to-strength, picking up new stockists and shining accolades, and all this success has led to the relocation of the fashionable watch brand’s HQ to a larger premises in London’s Shoreditch, “an amazing creative space” where the team can really flourish.
“We have seen huge growth of the brand throughout the UK and internationally, and have opened doors with key retailers such as John Lewis and Selfridges,” says Jemma, who recently got engaged and is busy planning a wedding. “Our dedication and love for the brand has had a huge impact on its success. Our team live and breathe the brand values and we are all passionate about what we do.”
Long-time friends Lesa and Jemma say that the past 12 months have exceeded their expectations, but there will be no slowing down. “We very much consider Olivia Burton as a fashion accessory, and we don’t stand still, not even for a second,” enthuses Jemma. “We will continue to nurture and grow the brand both in the UK but with a bigger emphasis on international growth on the next 12 months, and we are also working on launching our new men’s collection at the end of the year which we are all super excited about.”
