Originating as an accessories only website, founder Umar Kamani identified a gap in the market for the girl who wants fast, affordable fashion and who shops for the weekend, every weekend. Roll on 11 years later and we’re the fastest growing retailer in the world shaping the retail landscape. Our brand promise has always been to solve all of those “nothing to wear” dilemmas by dropping hundreds of new products daily. Our customer trusts in us to deliver her the latest product at the most competitive price. With a weekly site refresh of up to 1000 styles, we pride ourselves on constantly delivering an enhanced and interactive shopping experience every time our customers visit. Our business is all about the right here, right now. We don’t just anticipate trends; we create them, we take inspiration from the catwalk, celebrities and influencers, making sure they’re available for the customer to shop on our site before they’re available anywhere else. We’re not fast fashion, we are rapid fashion. 

Umar Kamani is one of the world’s most renowned entrepreneurs and started his business at the age of 24. He is a true leader in the fashion space coming from a long family history of fashion and retail. Graduating with an International Business degree from Manchester Metropolitan University and Umar and his team coming from the same generation as his customers, has been key to his brand’s success. Umar describes PrettyLittleThing as “a fairytale brand” and he is now responsible for dressing most of the female population. The 32 one year old founder of the global fashion brand counts the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Drake, Hailey Baldwin, Little Mix and Kourtney Kardashian as fans with Hailey, Kourtney, Little Mix and Jennifer all fronting campaigns for PrettyLittleThing. He has his finger firmly on the pulse of Influencer Marketing and with PLT now boasting over 15 million Instagram followers, 1.4 million on Tik Tok and 2.6 million Facebook fans, communicating the right content at the right time has been essential at driving his brand’s growth and engagement.
