Traffic People plans global expansion

The independent fashion brand Traffic People is celebrating its tenth anniversary with overseas expansion.

It will open stores in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and in New York, the latter as part of a plan to build up wholesale accounts in the US. It also plans to expand its 950 wholesale accounts in Europe and Britain and its eight UK shops. The company, owned by Louise Reynolds and Mark Readman, expects to have turnover in excess of £7m this year.
