CFE ALUMNI DESIGNERS PRESENT NEW COLLECTIONS FOR JOHN LEWIS LEEDS

CFE congratulates alumni Pioneer designers Cabba and Julia D’albert who will be selling their collections in the new John Lewis Leeds store, opening 20th October.

The ‘Made Locally’ Initiative in partnership with The Great British Exchange, showcases the best of regional talent in Yorkshire. John Lewis Leeds will stock over 120 products from 11 local Yorkshire producers, based within a 30-mile radius of Leeds as well as being made available online.

“..This means a great deal to be stocked in a national retailer of this level. I’m so proud to be stocked in the new Leeds store, especially as I grew up and still live just outside the city centre, all my family and friends will be able to see my designs up close!. I’m hoping that this will be the launch pad to grow the business and gain more stockists.” – Julia D’albert

“…When an iconic British brand like John Lewis approached me with such an incredible opportunity I was overwhelmed – it was more than I could have ever hoped for! The access this gives me and my brand to the retail giant’s expertise will be invaluable and hopefully, open many new doors for the business. “ – Cabba

Congratulations!
