The story behind building an iconic British fashion brand, with Roger Saul, founder of Mulberry

Building an international brand selling hundred of millions of pounds work of fashion, from humble beginnings, aged 21 with just £500 – is an incredible story on its own. But what happens on the other side, after being ousted from your own beloved brand – is soul defining.

Roger Saul, founder of Mulberry and his latest venture Sharpham Park, shares his story with Holly, in this emotionally charged interview. Charting his humble beginnings right through to today, Roger tells of a journey filled with pinch yourself fashion moment highs, to the lowest of lows. 

Roger created a brand synonymous with British fashion and achieved a cult-like status for the label.

This is a conversation filled with vision, passion and future thinking as a golden thread throughout. Now 15 years into his organic product farm at Sharpham Park, and his latest reinvention of rural retail with Kilver Court, Roger Saul reinforces the notion of entrepreneurial thinking and attacking your vision with unwavering energy and determination.
