Simon Middleton is an entrepreneur and a brand expert.
In this interview, which was done originally as a Facebook Live, Simon shares his wisdom by telling us about his new venture, Blackshore Coastal Clothing, a menswear brand for those who love the shores and harbours of the British Isles.
The garments combine sturdy, specialist fabrics and slow-make manufacture here in the UK to create an enduring product. He explains the thinking behind the brand, it’s ethos, and how he is securing investment through a Crowdcube campaign to realise his plans.
Some great tips and advice for any new business looking to set up a brand that is made in the UK.
