Founded in London, Monsoon is right at home with two Oxford Street stores. The women’s fashion brand has been a part of the British shopping scene since 1974 when founder Peter Simon came back from travelling around Asia and wanted to bring the beautiful things he’d seen in markets and bazaars to the UK. It started as a market stall on London’s famous Portobello Road and today the brand has stores across UK high streets and abroad. A bohemian aesthetic is still a key focus across daywear and occasion dresses, which includes a bridal range. Bright colours, vibrant prints and handcrafted techniques, Monsoon clothing is designed in London, inspired by afar. An extensive range of accessories from their sister brand Accessorize is also available at the stores including bags, jewellery and hats.
In 1995, Monsoon launched a childrenswear line and the store at 324 Oxford Street is dedicated to this collection. The range offers everyday clothing, party wear, page boy and flower girl outfits as well as shoes and accessories for little ones. At the Marble Arch store located at 498-500 Oxford Street, personal shopping appointments can be booked to help you find your dream wedding dress, or update your wardrobe with fresh fashion inspiration.
The Monsoon Accessorize Trust has been supporting disadvantaged women and children across Asia since 1994. Through they trust they are providing education, healthcare and employment opportunities which directly impact the artisans who make Monsoon Accessorize products in Asia.
