Founded in 1972 by Stephen Marks, French Connection set out to create well-designed fashionable clothing that appealed to a broad market. French Connection now offers a fashion-forward clothing range with a quirky spin on design, priding itself on quality. Driven by innovation and change, the brands strength lies in balancing new and exciting ideas with the basic promise of quality, as envisioned when the company was founded. The whole business is born of a desire to be original, distinctive and accessible. To this day, the principles have remained the same; design-led products presented in a unique and innovative way.
