Amina Muaddi opens first retail space at Harrods 
After nearly five years of building her self-funded label, Amina Muaddi is preparing to open her first permanent retail space at Harrods in London, as part of the footwear brand's next stage of growth. "We've evolved, we've tried to transform a successful startup into a successful business," Muaddi tells Business of Fashion. She has spent the past year expanding her business with longevity in mind, building relationships with suppliers, recruiting new talent and launching an e-commerce website. While the brand has enjoyed soaring popularity in the past years, even amid the pandemic, Muaddi is confident that a physical location will help give the brand a more consistent presence for customers to interact with. {Business of Fashion/paywalled}

Daniel Roseberry, the creative director of Schiaparelli, has recently signed with Creative Artists Agency (CAA) for representation.
