At the UK’s leading trade fashion buying event, Pure London, February 12 to 14, 2023, retail industry legend Ed Burstell and winner of All That Glitters jewellery designer Piers Carpenter will be among the keynote speakers.
There will be an in-depth discussion on fashion expansion and growth and how this can be navigated in a sustainable and ethical manner. Burstell’s adept leadership of Liberty during his stint at the department store saw double-digit year on year growth driven by a renewed focus on young British designers as well as spearheading a host of collaborations with brands to highlight Liberty’s renowned floral prints. Piers Carpenter loved jewellery from a young age and in 2011 joined the industry as a sales assistant in an antique jeweller. As a goldsmith apprentice Piers channeled his passion and honed his craft, becoming recognized for his technical and creative abilities as a designer.
At Pure London, Piers will discuss his journey to become a jewellery star, charting his experiences and advice along the way.
In today’s challenging retail environment, Pure London wants to encourage conversations about building businesses and utilising modern technology. Since launching the Power of One initiative in 2018 the event has committed to supporting the journey of brands and retailers towards sustainability.
