He will spearhead the content programme on the opening Sunday of the 16-18 July show. The 1.30 pm session will be titled ‘In Conversation With George Davies’.

With a career spanning over four decades, Davies is “widely acknowledged as the most successful fashion innovator and designer of his time and is renowned for revolutionising the British high-street” by creating three of the UK’s most successful fashion businesses, Next, George at Asda and Per Una at M&S. His latest venture GWD launched to the UK at Pure London in February of this year.

Davies will be joined on the stage by journalist and author Eric Musgrave, CEO of The UK Fashion & Textile Association. Musgrave has written for many newspapers and magazines in the UK and abroad and published his own coffee table book Sharp Suits. 

“Davies and Musgrave have a long-standing friendship within the fashion industry setting Musgrave as the perfect partner for this not to be missed interview with Davies discussing his career, his thoughts on the UK fashion market today, the future of UK retail and more”, said organiser Hyve Group.

Gloria Sandrucci, Event Director at Pure added: “Davies’ keynote will not only look back on his hugely successful career and the impact he has had on the UK fashion market but also address the future of fashion and the challenges facing brands and retailers today. The next edition of Pure London in July aims to deliver many insightful conversations and we look forward to revealing more details of our content programme and fantastic line-up of speakers.”
