Boohoo announces 40% rise in full-year revenue

I’ve found myself more recently looking at Boohoo’s website more often and ordered my first purchase the other day – a khaki bomber. I then received my daily drapers email saying that the etailer’s revenue has increased by 40% to £195.3m. I thought about what they were doing so right and found the article an interesting read. They now have more than 4 million active customers and launched apps for the UK, US and Australia.
Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane, joint CEOs, commented: “We are pleased to report a year of strong revenue growth across all geographic regions. Active customer numbers, order frequency and conversion have all increased on last year as we continue to invest in building customer lifetime value. By refining the mix of promotional and marketing expenditure in each of our key markets, we have achieved growth ahead of our plans.”
Boohoo have expanded their product range, which has been well received by customers and have added a petite range and plus-size range. These both continue to grow. Their mobile experience has also been enhanced, introducing more flexible delivery and return options and later next day delivery cut off times.

I look forward to seeing how Boohoo continue to strive in the e-tail world and compete against their ever increasing competitors.

Matthew Williamson’s Amazonia Collection

Absolutely love Mathew Williamson’s latest collection, which has been a great influence or my final uni design module work. The collection uses both literal and figurative motifs for the tropical/exotic botanical garment designs. There is a huge array of visual information in the collection, with a variety of colours, scales, repeat types.

Unlike Williamson’s previous collections, this Amazonia collection offers a mix and match feel. In this collection, contrasting print designs have been teamed together, taking intricate tropical detail and combining it with a complementary colour palette. Diverse colours offers an energetic vibe, yet the sophisticated  motifs create a feminine touch. As a whole collection, there is clear evidence of varied colours, small and large scale, compositions and substrates used. These elements offer uniqueness and individuality in each design, but brings them together holistically.
