As part of its creative expansion, the group has appointed Hannah Miles as Group Creative Director. Having worked across a number of licensed children’s products within her career, Miles brings a large portfolio of experience and skills from her previous role as Managing Director at Smith & Brooks, where she worked within product design for over eleven years.

Ms Miles now leads a knowledgeable creative team that she believes comprises of the best designers in the industry and will help build on the previous brand successes.

She will not only liaise with UK customers, but also those based in Europe in order to forge designs that will cater for each individual market. 

“I’m really looking forward to focusing on designing innovative children’s apparel, with selected licensed focussed retailers, where we can give focus and make their in-store selection the best. We have a great team across the group that work with some very highly skilled factories, so I’m eager to see how we can all work together to create products that are at the forefront of the market,” commented Ms Miles.
