Designer fashion house Holland Cooper played a key role in celebrating the Queen’s platinum jubilee, crowning a record financial year for Cheltenham’s business.
Already a favorite of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, the brand has launched a limited collection to mark a special royal occasion – with Holland Cooper clothing appearing at the Platinum Jubilee Choice at The Mall in London on Sunday 5 June 2022 private evening reception at the famous five-star Mayfair Hotel, Claridge’s.
Holland Cooper’s Platinum Jubilee collection included a custom regency tweed coat, a Highbury cape coat, a double-breasted jacket, a hand-rolled ‘platinum royal scarf’ and a full-length Marlborough trench coat.
The business also found that the last 12 months have been the most successful so far. Its upcoming 2022 annual results show growth of 48 per cent and revenue of £ 22.7 million, with an average annual growth of 57 per cent over the last five years.
The brand was founded in 2008 by Jade Holland Cooper, when she was a student at the Royal College of Agriculture in Cirencester.
The current CEO of the company said that she was ‘incredibly proud’ to be part of the official royal celebrations, which were broadcast on television and broadcast around the world – and that she has great ambitions for the brand.
She told SoGlos: ‘I built the company from scratch; it has been the work of love for the last 14 years. I am immensely proud of what my teams and I have created.
‘We keep evolving, my ultimate goal is to become a leading British lifestyle brand, I believe anything is possible – it just depends on how much you want it!’
Proudly, the British brand, which describes its appearance as ‘country style with statement city tailing’, also experienced a boom through online sales through the Covid-19 pandemic, giving it the confidence to open a new flagship boutique in Charlton Kings in October 2021.
‘We have people traveling from all over the country and even from abroad. Customers simply love a bespoke offer and personal service. Since opening in October last year, we have seen steady growth and sales have been strong, ‘added Holland Cooper.
