Since leaving Benjamin Roberts in 2014 George has been working closely with award-winning British brands Alan Hannah, Mia Mia and Rita Mae, and has been instrumental in growing the labels – something he hopes to repeat with Catherine Parry.

“I’m delighted to be working with Catherine Parry alongside Alan Hannah, Mia Mia and Rita Mae.” says George. “It’s a good fit with the other brands that I’m involved with and definitely a label that’s going places, so it’s exciting to imagine what the future holds.”

Simon Ryan, one half of the husband and wife team behind Catherine Parry comments: “Maria and I have known George for a number of years and we’ve seen the success that he has achieved with the other labels that he worked with, so we are absolutely thrilled to have someone of his calibre and experience as part of the team. We’re confident that working together with George, Catherine Parry will continue to be a rising star in the industry.”

As well as being closely involved with other aspects of the business, George will take over responsibility for sales in England, Scotland and Wales, whilst Marie Murphy-Campion will represent the Catherine Parry label in Ireland.

Since launching in 2014, Catherine Parry has acquired more than 20 UK stockists. Catherine Parry will be exhibiting at The Harrogate Bridal Show (hall B, stand B20), where it will be launching its 2017 collection as well as the label’s first capsule collection of mix and match separates. The 2017 collections promise to offer a more fashion-forward look with designs made from high quality fabrics including Mikado silk and crepe.
