Working with Emerging Brands

“We continue to work with a handpicked mix of local, national and international emerging brands such as Gibson & Birkbeck, Indigo Ivy, Fairfax & Favor and Anna Lascata. Naturally emerging and developing brands have different marketing capabilities and target audiences.”


“We work alongside developing brands and ensure we compliment their promotional activities in the digital arena. In addition we create social and digital awareness through our own social media and marketing platforms to help develop a continually growing and loyal online, and offline customer base.”


Success

A Hume started life as a Gentleman’s outfitters in 1929, under the watchful eye of founder, Arch Hume. Fast forward to 2015 and it is Arch’s grandson, Archie, who is at the reins. Archie together with his wife Karen have spent the last fifteen years evolving and transforming the brand into a successful multi-channel retailer.


A Hume recognised the need to embrace new platforms for business, which would attract the next generation as well as a more urban market. So, in 2007, they took the business online and have been thriving ever since.  

2014 saw A Hume scoop two Drapers Independents Awards, Independent Retailer of the Year and Best Independent Multi-Channel Operator. Unheard of for a traditional country brand. A Hume were also delighted to be short-listed in the Drapers Digital Awards 2015 for Best Multichannel Retailer – under £10 million turnover, and Best Multi-Channel Operator and Lifestyle Independent of the Year, in the Drapers Independent Retailer Awards 2015.

A Hume won the award for Best Website at the Time Inc. Shooting Industry Awards 2015.
