Ted Baker latest news
The name was Kelvin’s self-styled alter ego who was an ‘intrepid aviator, an all-round sportsman and the consort of princesses and Hollywood beauties’.
Within a couple of years, the retailer had stores in Glasgow, Manchester, Nottingham and Covent Garden.
From the very beginning the brand has had a clear focus on quality and attention to detail. Ray Kelvin is no longer involved with the brand (but still holds a large share). Other notable people in the business include Rachel Osborne (CEO) and Helena Feltham (Interim Chair).
There are many Ted Baker standalone stores across the UK, and also a number of concessions in department stores such as John Lewis and Selfridges. There are also multiple locations in designer outlet parks such as Bicester Village and Cheshire Oaks.
