Founded in 1976, Warehouse is a British fashion retailer owned by Aurora Fashions. The company offers high-street fashion apparel at an affordable price tag. In 1979, Warehouse opened its first flagship store in London and, in 1985, the brand launched its first BYMAIL catalogue featuring supermodels such as Naomi, Christy and Yasmin.
In 1999, the company opened its first international store in Singapore and the online website was launched shortly after, in 2001. The business had been part of Mosaic Fashions and then Aurora Fashions. Along with sister company Oasis it was demerged from Aurora and the two brands were run by CEO Liz Evans until her recent departure to head up Fat Face.
It is now under the stewardship of CEO Hash Ladha.
