About John Richmond
John Richmond was born in Manchester and later moved to London, where he completed his studies at Kingston University in 1982. He immediately created a collection under his own name, and soon emerged as a leading exponent of the British avant-garde. The current collections are organised in two lines: the first line “John Richmond”, and the diffusion line “RICHMOND” containing both a prêt a porter and denim range.
The range of product categories is continuously expanding: in addition to eyewear, underwear and beachwear, the junior line and the footwear, there are now plans for the launch of a John Richmond fragrance and a licensing agreement for watches and jewellery.Other projects include the expansion of RICHMOND stores dedicated to the men’s and women’s X and Denim lines, showcasing the younger diffusion ranges to the global market. This project will entail the opening of a hundred stores in the world’s main markets by 2011.
