“Since its launch fifteen years ago, Walpole’s flagship development programme, Brands of Tomorrow, has been a key pillar of our work to drive the growth of the British luxury sector. So far, we’ve taken 142 early-stage, high-end brands through a tried and trusted programme of mentoring and masterclasses, immersing their founders in the support, help and advice of their fellow Walpole members and investing the time and talents of established British luxury brands into nurturing and developing the potential of new ones."

Founded in 2018 and referred to by the Financial Times as ‘dopamine-inducing’ jewellery, Roxanne First’s fine jewellery is designed for everyday wear and timeless cool. The studio’s pieces are crafted using ethically sourced solid gold, diamonds, multi-coloured sapphires and semiprecious stones. Roxanne inherited her passion from her Italian family’s love of jewellery and today her eponymous collection includes everything from a classic diamond hoop to beautiful bespoke jewellery in rainbow hues.

After years of not being able to find a deodorant that could withstand the rigours of their 8-daya- week West End careers, actors Ed Currie and Andy Coxon set about creating one that could. The result was AKT London (pronounced “act”). Made in the UK with 100% plastic-free packaging, this natural deodorant’s blend of active botanicals and Deo-Barrier Complex™ leaves you dry and fresh all day long. Tested on over 1000 dancers since 2015, AKT is born to perform.
