"It is a great endorsement of the desirability of our products and our strategy to maintain full price sales by offering a higher level of product exclusivity right through to Christmas, despite the competitive environment we are in, and the challenging economic times for customers.
"This is one of Karen Millen’s most successful trading periods to date and puts us in a very strong position to deliver further growth. We have spent the last year investing heavily into the business and its infrastructure and we are hugely excited about the future as we continue to invest.

Our aim is to have global flagship stores in the major fashion capitals of the world supporting our full price trading stance. We believe we are very well placed to capitalise on the international growth opportunities ahead.”
