UK:Roland Mouret opens Flagship London & design house

Roland Mouret opens Flagship London & design house


Simon Fuller's partner in business and leading European fashion designer Roland Mouret opens his first store and design house. Appropriately situated in the heart of London's distinguished Mayfair, the iconic store opening comes towards the end of London Fashion Week.

Simon Fuller, Mouret’s business partner comments: “This is another important and special moment for Roland Mouret. Several months ago we regained the right to use his name on his designs and now his name will proudly stand above his first store in Carlos Place, London. This is the beginning of another wonderful journey for one of the world's most talented and respected designers.”

The store opens at 8 Carlos Place, London, W1, and includes both Mouret's Womenswear and Menswear collections across two retail floors, in addition to the designer's atelier, workshops, studios and a showroom. Mouret will also be showcasing a new range that will be entirely exclusive to the illustrious store, part of the “Roland Mouret at 8 Carlos Place” concept devised to develop unique products from, and available exclusively at, the flagship store.

Roland Mouret says that he is "very excited" about the new store, adding: "I hope it brings the magic of Avenue Montaigne into the heart of Mayfair and I am bracing myself for the challenge ahead, what a new brand should stand for in the 21st century. We wanted to offer our retail clients something unique and special in the store – our new house - and I hope we have created the environment in which to do that.” Mouret is famous for his Galaxy Dress, a favourite of Hollywood stars that include Cameron Diaz, Demi Moore, Rachel Weisz and Scarlett Johansson.

Simon Fuller is one of the most influential and dynamic men in the entertainment business. Creator of the TV shows that define our generation and sculpt the future of our entertainment industry, Fuller's XIX Entertainment has made him the most significant manager of modern times. Although well reputed for his interests in music and sport through his management of big names like The Spice Girls, Andy Murray and David Beckham, Simon Fuller is now a growing force in fashion as his businesses with Victoria Beckham and Roland Mouret prove.
