MADE IN BRITAIN
We might have six decades behind us. But at River Island, we don’t feel our age. Our brand is as fresh, exciting and forward-looking as it’s always been. With 300 stores across the world, an award-winning online fashion retail site, one of the biggest in-house design teams on the British high street and a deep commitment to nurturing new talent, we’re one of the most successful fashion retailers in the UK. But watch this space. We’re only just beginning.
“River Island has fast become the designer brand of the high street, with stores in more than 18 countries. River Island has and always will be an exciting, innovative, and fun company. You’ll be glad you joined us."
HERE AND NOW
With over 300 stores in the UK and beyond, plus an award-winning online store, River Island isn’t just an icon of the British high street, but a fashion favourite across the world too. We’re proud of everything we’ve achieved so far. But it’s the future of our brand that excites us most. Our ambition is to become a leading multimarket, multichannel fashion brand for the mid-priced market. Bring your talent to River Island, and help us get there that little bit faster.
FRESH AND FEARLESS
We’re renowned in the industry for seeking out and nurturing new talent. We’ve sponsored Graduate Fashion Week for six years running, helped to create London Fashion Week’s Fashion Film Festival, and collaborated with a number of up and coming designers, including global star and style icon Rihanna. All this and more is what’s earned us our reputation as the Designer Brand of the High Street. And what makes a career with us so thrilling.
CSR & CHARITY
@GIVERISLAND We believe that our business can be both profitable and responsible. It’s the reason we support a growing list of charities and organisations as diverse as our fashion. Why we build long-term, fair relationships with our suppliers, people and the communities in which our stores are based. And why we run our business in a way that is mindful of the planet’s limited resources, using renewable energy sources, reduced packaging and recycled and biodegradable materials wherever we can.
OUR TROPHY CABINET Fashion. Innovation. Marketing. We’ve been recognised in the fashion industry and beyond for all this and more. Whilst winning trophies and gongs isn’t what our business is all about, we sure are proud of them. Here’s a few of our most recent wins.
