Mini Mode – Global Kids Fashion Week
The investor behind Soho Farmhouse, Anya Hindmarch, Emilia Wickstead, The Conran Shop and others is adamant that investors support businesses, rather than strip them. Jivad Marandi, a prominent British fashion business investor is investing substantially in the UK Fashion Industry.
He says: “Britain has an amazing pool of talent from all over the world. They love the British liberal values; they aspire to live here. What I can bring is patient capital, and offer back-office and financial help to support the businesses,” said Marandi, who has put his money behind a variety of companies and individuals here, including Nick Jones of Soho House and designers Anya Hindmarch and Emilia Wickstead.
“I’m a very patient investor, and I don’t have an exit strategy. I would like to keep my businesses forever. That’s the ideal. My partners might want to exit at a certain point, in which case I would support them. But they are under no pressure to do so from my side.”
