We were thrilled to stage our first in-conversation event in partnership with Walpole and Harvey Nichols
Launching the Knightsbridge Edit Live series
This summer, we were delighted to host the inaugural Knightsbridge Edit Live event on the iconic Fifth Floor of Harvey Nichols. Walpole CEO Helen Brocklebank chaired a panel discussion with three Brands of Tomorrow – a flagship development programme from Walpole that champions and nurtures independent brands in the British luxury industry.
Walpole is the official sector body for UK luxury, and the brands under its wing which took part in the live discussion event were AKT London, BAZ & CO and Roxanne First fine jewellery. AKT London is a premium, natural deodorant company founded by former West End performers Ed Currie and Andy Coxon, while BAZ & CO is a basil-based men’s skincare company started by farmer James Dashwood Chase. Roxanne First, meanwhile, is an eponymous London-based jewellery brand specialising in statement yet everyday pieces that are ethically sourced and crafted in solid gold. Helen interviewed the four representatives in a frank and inspiring conversation about entrepreneurship, business challenges and motivation. Audience members sipped Harvey Nichols champagne and took home a Walpole goody bag.
The Knightsbridge Edit Live will return in the autumn with more live in-conversation events taking place in some of the area’s key venues. Stay tuned and subscribe to our newsletter to be the first in the know.
