Tonight is the fourth Style Gallery that Mishcon de Reya has held. The evening is a showcase evening for young and entrepreneurial brands that we support either through our relationships with Walpole or the British Fashion Council or The Leap.

Lewis Cohen
Partner, Mishcon de Reya

Tonight is an opportunity for a number of the brands who we work with or who we engage with to have the opportunity for their products to be seen by our clients, by our contacts and for them to network and really for our clients also to have fun.

Building Connections

Kevin McCarthy
Partner, Mishcon de Reya

The Leap is a really exciting programme, the companies which are involved in that are high growth, explosive companies which are really going through change at the moment and we think that the programme matches that.

Nadim Meer
Partner, Mishcon de Reya

We can help them but more importantly we are creating with The Leap a forum for them to interact with one another. We are very proud to support these types of high grade businesses which are great for the economy and great for the UK.

Jerry Loy
UK Trade and Investment

The British Fashion Industry  luxury brands is very much in demand particularly from the South East of Asia and with Mishcon we have managed to put in touch some brilliant ideas and hopefully investment, distribution and expansion of these organisations.

Michelle de Conto

Mishcon is kind of bringing people together and creating the sense of community and I think this support goes really beyond just the legal advice.

Polly McMaster
Co-founder, The Fold

First it is a chance to meet new people, see what other luxury emerging brands are coming through as part of the Mishcon network.

Helen Croft
Partner, Mishcon de Reya

Our luxury fashion and retail group has many relationships with many small brands that we provide advice to or we introduce to connections that we as a firm have.

Providing Support

Lewis Cohen
Partner, Mishcon de Reya

We sponsor the Walpole Brand of Tomorrow programme whereby we offer mentoring and support to ten up and coming British fashion brands.

Kresse Wesling MBE
Co-founder, Elvis & Kresse

We were Walpole Brand 2012. We make everything from reclaimed materials.  Mishcon is fantastic actually because I think they genuinely understand entrepreneurs and they understand the idea of having a passion for your business and really wanting to see it grow and scale.

Chantal Coady
Founder, Rococo

They run a whole series of seminars about intellectual property, about commercial law, employment law – everything that you can think of as your business grows and expands.

Sally Britton
Partner, Mishcon de Reya

The Style Gallery is only one of the things that we do to support fashion at Mishcon.  We also support the British Fashion Council with their mentoring scheme in which we work with a number of designers that are at a very important stage in their business.  There are a number of issues facing the emerging designers.

Michelle de Conto
British Fashion Council

Mishcon has been an invaluable partner to us. We could not do this and we could not have businesses without having the partnership and the support.

Sally Britton
Partner, Mishcon de Reya

We get a great response from the emerging designers that we work with as part of the British Fashion Council's mentoring programme but it’s also great for the people who work at Mishcon to be involved with businesses at such an early stage, at such an exciting time it is an invaluable experience for us as well.
