Who? The Delhi-born, Shoreditch-based Ashish Gupta launched his London label in 2001.
I care, why? Rita Ora and MIA are fans. What more do you want?
Keep talking… He's a fan of the American designer Bob Mackie, best known for his spangly stage outfits for Cher and Tina Turner.
Where do I find out more? No social media for Ashish – like Phoebe Philo, he's way too cool for that. He does have an elegantly sparse website, however, ashish.co.uk
House of Holland
Who? Mastermind behind slogan tees ‘Get Yer Freak On Giles Deacon’ and ‘I’ll Show You Who’s Boss Kate Moss’, Ramsbottom’s very own Henry Holland.
I care, why? Because not only is he mates with style icons Aggy Deyn, Pixie Geldof and Alexa Chung, he’s also a former fashion editor for Sneak, Bliss, Smash Hits AND Pop magazines. So he like totally knows his fash, okayy?!
Keep talking... HOH collections, much like Henry himself, are all about being bold, vibrant and a little bit naughty. Just check out his recent Mr Quiffy range (sold out of a customised ice-cream van, which toured the UK this summer).
Where do I find out more? Lucky for you, Holland’s a pro at social networking. Find him on… @HenryHolland on Twitter/ Instagram/Vine, HouseofHollandLTD on Facebook, Hohltd on Pinterest and house-of-holland.blogspot.co.uk
Who? Quintessentially British luxury brand Mulberry prides itself on combining traditional craftmanship with quirky design.
I care, why? The Alexa (inspired by Alexa Chung), the Del Rey (named after Lana), the Bayswater… Mulberry's iconic handbags cause a stampede every season and we can't wait to see what the latest It bag will be.
Keep talking... This will be the last collection overseen by Mulberry's creative director Emma Hill, who is largely credited with transforming and updating the company into a throughly modern 'superbrand', so she's likely to want to go out with a bang. They also throw the best parties!
