Clare Stephens has run her own design/clothing business since 1985 starting with a market stall set up during her college years. Specialising in niche trends and products, she found that these gaps in the market were the most consistently profitable for a small business.
Developing a large vintage clothing business from the late 80’s, she was at the forefront of many niche trends, including the de-construction of unwanted clothing and turning it into new saleable shapes, exporting to Japan large quantities of heritage clothing and working a fast stock turnover model to keep the large shop she co-owned fresh. The Vintage business ran for 15 years.
In the late 90’s she opened a further boutique in Brighton that ran profitably for 12 years. To provide stock for the stores, she ran her design studio in Brick Lane from 1999 – 2005 and added a small wholesale business supplying independent mid-high end boutiques.
Developing a niche body-con look in the mid-noughties led to being stocked on Asos from 2008 until 2016, she developed this look into a mainstream trend that was stocked at many levels of the fashion cycle including Selfridges, concessions in Topshop, House of Fraser Online, Lipsy Stores, Bank, Nelly, Zoot, Namshi, independent boutiques and online stores worldwide.
Lynnette Murphy has had a successful Design Consultancy and worked in Fashion Forecasting for many years.
