Walpole names 2016 Brands of Tomorrow


Aurelia Probiotic Skincare and Noble Isle have both made the cut

Two cosmetics brands have been selected for Walpole’s 2016 Brands of Tomorrow programme.

The programme aims to highlight and develop brands that are considered to be frontrunners in the world of luxury, standing out from the crowd. To qualify, brands needed an annual turnover of more than £10,000 but no more than £4m, an entrepreneurial management style and a clear vision of their future goals and strategy.

Discovering and nurturing new talent is a leading priority for Walpole and our members, and as luxury industry leaders it is our responsibility to ensure the future success and sustainability of a sector, which is forecast to be worth £51.5bn to the UK economy by 2019.”
