Secured for Spring/Summer 2010 are Chloe, DKNY, Hugo Boss, Fendi and Little Marc Jacobs, a dream line-up totalling over 40 brands offered for online retail across the globe.

In the nine months to end of September 2009, turnover was 155% ahead of the previous year, average basket value was 24% ahead and the active subscriber base was six times the size. CEO and Founder, Alex Theophanous states: “We believe that our luxury proposition continues to be the core to our success, and we are actively working on more exciting developments for the first half of next year”.

Belinda Earl, the Chief Executive of Jaeger and Aquascutum, joins AlexandAlexa.com as Non-Executive Chairman with immediate effect. “I am delighted to be joining the board of AlexandAlexa and I look forward to working with the team to develop the growth strategy of this exciting online venture.”

Alex Theophanous adds, “I am delighted to be working with this talented and experienced new management team. It's a testament to the strength of our brand and the market opportunity. Following our recent fundraising, we aim to expand significantly the business both in the UK and internationally. Around a third of our business is outside the UK, including many of our best customers. We aim to get our luxury kid's fashion brands into many more international hands in the next few years."
