Funding was provided by the Arts Council with the remainder coming from Deda cash reserves, charitable trusts and foundations, and with support from the University of Derby.

White Stuff to open in Derby’s Cathedral Quarter - Fashion and lifestyle retailer proud to be opening in historic city -

White Stuff, the fashion and lifestyle retailer is delighted to announce it will be opening in Derby’s Cathedral Quarter as part of its UK-wide expansion. With over 90 UK shops nationwide this will be the first in Derbyshire.

The 2081 sq ft shop will open in November and showcase a mix of clothing, footwear, accessories and home ware for men and women. Featuring the latest winter collections, womens wear  will comprise of distinctive print dresses, embellished tops and textured knits, as well as statement coats, accessories and footwear. Menswear will include casual and comfortable pieces, in heavy tweeds and ring spun denim, with colour blockknits, leather belts and bags.

All White Stuff shops support a local charity and every year the business commits to donating 1% of annual profits to charity. The local Derby charity has been voted for by local customers and the community and will be announced before the shop opens.

A spokesperson for the company said “We are excited to be opening a shop in Derby and offering our unique range of clothing, footwear, accessories and home ware to the local community. We also look forward to making a difference by supporting a local charity through our annual donation and fun shop fundraising events throughout the year.”

White Stuff has been supported in its move to Derby by the Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District (BID), Marketing Derby and commercial property agents Gadsby Nichols. The shop is located on Sadler Gate which has previously been Ark clothing, Sadler Spring fish spa and most recently Design 44 who, earlier this year, moved into premises elsewhere in Sadler Gate.

John Forkin, Managing Director or Marketing Derby “White Stuff has been on our target list for some time and we are delighted that they have chosen to invest in Derby, one of many such premium brands being attracted to the City”

Martin Langsdale, chair of the Cathedral Quarter Management Group, which drives forward activities under the area’s BID status, said: “The investment by White Stuff is further recognition that the Cathedral Quarter is the premium retail heart of the city.

“It signals that the work that we have all been doing under the BID for the past seven years to position the Cathedral Quarter as a high quality destination is bearing fruit.

“Our efforts as part of the wider inward investment partnership in the city have attracted a wide range of first rate independent retailers, food and drink establishments and professional firms. Now, the arrival of White Stuff is pivotal in the future growth of the Cathedral Quarter’s reputation.

“White Stuff will greatly enhance the fashion retail offer in the Cathedral Quarter – complementing the businesses already established here – and will be a fantastic draw for customers far and wide.

“We look forward to working with White Stuff as part of our overall work to raise the profile of the Cathedral Quarter and attract more people and businesses back into this unique part of the city centre.”
