Born out of a passion for beautiful fabrics and exquisite clothing, our founder Peter Simon began the Monsoon story in 1972 on a stall on Portobello Road. Our first store opened on London’s Beauchamp Place in 1973. Monsoon focused on clothes with an ethnic origin from faraway places, including unusual dresses from Afghanistan and countries on route. – more...Monsoon Accessorize is a truly global brand. With over 1000 branches in over 56 markets, including over 340 in the UK, we are still growing. We offer exquisite products that represent individuality, originality and strong global brand values. We continue to promote cross-cultural understanding, expanding organically across the globe and international development will no doubt remain an essential and inspiring part of our DNA.
Our values and ethics are a huge part of what it means to work here, from how we treat our suppliers to developing our employees to enable incredible customer experiences. We're proud to support the Monsoon Accessorize Trust which helps disadvantaged women and children predominantly in Asia through education, healthcare and income generation projects. Today, the Trust is funding over ten projects that benefit some 10,000 women and children every year! – less
