The sun is shining in London and it feels like we are coming out of the slump of a dreary winter. It also means that wedding season is about to kick off. We have had the pleasure of seeing Marwood ties worn by many a stylish gent and thought we would start to share some of these looks with you. In the next couple of months we will finally be able to launch our new website design and that will include a lot of information on how we can provide a service for bespoke wedding ties as well as inspiration for modern looks for the big day. Here are a few snapshots of the Marwood lace ties that we have been sent.

Watch this space for more information and more photos of grooms and groom parties wearing Marwood for their big day. If you have any questions please also get in touch with us and we are happy to help. email@example.com
The woven patterned ties are newly launched on the Marwood online shop. The fabric is designed by Marwood and woven in Suffolk by one of the UK's most skilled silk mills. All ties bought online come in a handmade box and make perfect gifts. We really believe in offering customer service of the highest quality and understand this is a special investment piece to last.
Tomorrow Marwood will show a capsule collection of accessories at London Fashion Week. With a mix of some unisex pieces that were launched at LC:M in January and some items designed especially for women; our point of view is that cool accessories are often better borrowed or shared. Menswear influences will always be at the roots of Marwood and influence every collection, so if the final design gets appreciated by both sexes then all the better. Watch out for our newly designed website launching in April with a showcase of menswear and womenswear accessories - made in England.
Our face of Marwood is Ben Grimes. Her personal style icons are Katherine Hepburn and Courtney Love. What's not to love about her? She was a pleasure to shoot with and certainly rocked the style with ease.
Marwood's latest collection is currently showing during Paris Fashion Week. The collection was inspired by the Viennese artist and creator, Koloman Moser. These styles will hits stores in UK, US, and Japan in June 2014.

Pop in to the Monochrome Pop-Up just off Carnaby Street in London. A few of our new SS14 products are on sale there including the ever so popular geometric tiled shawl. Soft and the perfect wide proportion, we think you should get in there quickly. Watch out for lots of other lovely gift ideas too.
Our mohair socks are getting around London this Christmas. Various colours are currently selling in Dover Street Market, Mr Porter, Other Shop and Fortnum & Mason. We also have just started selling black mohair in heavy knit and plain knit versions at Mr Hare in Mayfair. He knows how to make snappy shoes this man, we very much encourage you to take a stroll and try on some styles. These are tried and tested stylish shoes and what better comfort than having a layer of mohair in-between you and the leather eh? Let's quote the man himself... "When I say these are real men’s socks, I mean even men can look after them. You don’t have to take my word for it, but I do swear by them".
"REAL MAN SOCKS"
Next up is East London store GOODHOOD. We have known these guys a long time and loved their store concept and individuality. They love the classics and well made products but mix it all up in a spin of cool pieces led by their style and street wear / music influences. We made some dip-dye socks especially for them. These are pretty special as there are only a few in existence. They are dip-dyed by hand and as renowned Selectism say... "Socks are a new addition to Marwood’s resume this season, proving that the brand has some of the finest craftmanship in the business right across the board."
Just don't forget about the colours in a range of sizes for MEN & WOMEN on the Marwood web shop.
Six months, ten businesses, two winners. It’s been a very exciting journey for all of us on our Building Brand Equity programme. Especially so, for our10 finalists who have worked very hard on their business plans with expert mentors from Angel Capital Innovations. We culminated the programme last night with a final event at The Hospital Club, where the 10 finalists pitched in front of Angel investors and a panel of judges. The two winners are:

Both Katie and Becky are CFE alumni on the Pioneer and Market Entry programmes respectively. The designers were extremely thrilled to win the cash prizes and secure additional mentoring with Investment experts.
At the end of last month we were part of the UKTI 's GREAT WEEK Japan. Along with other British designers such as Matthew Miller, Sibling, Alice Made This, Moody & Farrell, Bottletop and Olivia Von Halle among others we took our wares to Tokyo for a week long visit. We showed our collections to buyers and press for two days in La Foret Gallery and then managed to check out the local shops including Dover Street Market Ginza, Tomorrowland, Edifice, SuperAMarket, Beams International and the most amazing bookshop that could have entertained for months on end - the Daikanyama T-Site
Here are some snaps from the trip...
