Walpole reveals Brands of Tomorrow 2011

Walpole has announced this year's Brands of Tomorrow, sponsored by Mishcon de Reya Solicitors. Now in its fifth year running, the initiative aims to nurture and support new and upcoming talent within Britain’s luxury industry. The announcement was made at the Walpole Brands of Tomorrow launch party held on the 24 May at Browns Hotel. In attendance were Brands of Tomorrow from previous years, Walpole members, and the programme's panel of experts: a selection of some of the most experienced luxury entrepreneurs and leaders in the UK. Together they will assist and support the new brands throughout the year in workshops and help with any practical advice they need.
