ABOUT PRETTYLITTLETHING:

Originating as an accessories only website, founder Umar Kamani identified a gap in the market for the girl who wants fast, affordable fashion and who shops for the weekend, every weekend. Roll on 11 years later and we’re the fastest growing retailer in the world shaping the retail landscape. Our brand promise has always been to solve all of those “nothing to wear” dilemmas by dropping hundreds of new products daily. Our customer trusts in us to deliver her the latest product at the most competitive price. With a weekly site refresh of up to 1000 styles, we pride ourselves on constantly delivering an enhanced and interactive shopping experience every time our customers visit. Our business is all about the right here, right now. We don’t just anticipate trends; we create them, we take inspiration from the catwalk, celebrities and influencers, making sure they’re available for the customer to shop on our site before they’re available anywhere else. We’re not fast fashion, we are rapid fashion.

He is a true leader in the fashion space coming from a long family history of fashion and retail.
