This year, multi award-winning luxury fashion retailer Young Ideas is celebrating 50 years in business. Since opening its first store in the swinging sixties, this long-established Midlands retailer has been at the forefront of luxury retail, offering collections from the world’s most coveted designers with an unparalleled shopping experience. Now with three stores in Ashbourne, Lichfield and Derby selling designer womenswear and menswear, Young Ideas is the proud winner of many prestigious industry awards, including Drapers ‘Premium Independent of the Year’ in 2014 and ‘Womenswear Independent of the Year’ and ‘Independent Retailer of the Year’ in 2013.
To celebrate its milestone anniversary, Young Ideas is collaborating with Foundation Derbyshire – an independent charity that provides grants to voluntary and community groups across the county. Young Ideas has identified the following key causes affecting people in Derbyshire: women’s health, ageing, dementia, homelessness and children’s issues, and will be raising funds for them with an exciting calendar of fashion events and sponsorship activities throughout the year.
Young Ideas are celebrating the anniversary throughout the year with various events, including a series of talks on the history of fashion by industry insiders, in-store styling events, charity raffles and auctions of designer prizes.
Owner Anne Wright said: “Fashion trends have changed enormously over the last fifty years, but our passion for delivering exceptional customer service has remained constant. We are immensely proud to have reached this important milestone and want to thank our customers and the local community for supporting us. We are looking forward to celebrating, whilst supporting a cause that is very close to our hearts.”
