Katy Elliott opened retail store The Hangar in August 2019. With 20 years of experience in the fashion industry from retail Visual Merchandising through to styling and buying and her ethos on fashion opening her first store was the next step in her career.
Throughout her career Katy has worked for many luxury brands so craftsmanship and sustainability is something she felt passionately about. From this concept THE HANGAR store was launched, and so it begins.
She wanted the modern woman to be able to shop more savvy, whilst still honoring a true sense of personal style. Wanting to encourage her consumers to shop differently, looking at quality of the product as an investment and how utilizing and experimenting with their wardrobe by introducing staples and show-stopping outfits, can be a more sustainable way of shopping.
She believes clothes do not go out of fashion, style is how you wear something, not what you wear.
The Hangar source products from post seasons and samples from an eclectic mix of brands, were possible UK brands. Harvesting meaningful and long-lasting relationships with the brands. A welcomed approach to take out of season products is met with a discount they are then able to pass onto the customer.
