LONDON — Harrods is ready to give emerging talent a boost with a new, online initiative called Harrods Launches.
The store today will showcase two new designers, Manjit Deu and Iris van Herpen, on harrods.com. Orders can be placed for Deu’s collection online before it lands at the Knightsbridge store Feb. 10 and van Herpen’s collection can be previewed before it’s exhibited at the store from Nov. 23 to Dec. 6. That collection, however, will not be sold.
