Reiss is a UK-based fashion brand owned and run by founder, David Reiss.[1] The brand produces men's and women's clothing. It has 65 stores, located primarily in the UK, but with stores in the USA, Ireland, UAE, China and Malaysia.[2] One store is located in Multrees Walk in Edinburgh, another in Marina Mall, Abu Dhabi. The Reiss flagship store and headquarters in London, designed by Squire and Partners, has won several awards including the RIBA Award, the BCO Award and the Civic Trust Award.[3] The brand was named Fashion Retailer of the Year in 2003 at the British Style Awards.[4]

Reiss has seen a significant increase in the number of its stores, including key stores in Heathrow Terminal 5 and Westfield London, to almost 100 outlets worldwide, and Reiss intends to eventually grow to 250 stores worldwide.[5] The brand has been one of the few British retailers to crack the American market after opening in Greenwich Village, New York.[6]
