Member Event: A Shopping Tale and Some Festive Cheer

Psyche, 175-187 Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough

Join us as we take over Psyche for an evening of mulled-wine, must-have discounts and entrepreneurial inspiration.

We’re delighted to invite Forum members to join us at fashion retailer Psyche for an exclusive night of food, drink, fashion and tales of entrepreneurial endeavour.

This is your chance to hear from founder Steve Cochrane , who has achieved his dream of building a destination store with the feel, style and individuality of an independent boutique.

By creating the ultimate experience in retail theatre, Steve defied the odds when he opened his first store, Sliced Tomatoes, on Station Road in Redcar.

In time, this became the hugely successful Psyche which, during the past 33 years, he has developed into a multi-award winning retailer that is home to some of the most luxurious designer labels, with collections from Hugo Boss, Polo Ralph Lauren, Barbour, Ted Baker and Armani.

Now set within a 35,000 square foot department store, constant innovation to the customer experience has seen Psyche evolve into an iconic destination for men, women and children to indulge in accessible designer fashion.

Over the years it has attracted great interest and many plaudits from the fashion industry, winning a string of awards along the way, including the much coveted Drapers Fashion Awards on two separate occasions, FHM magazine’s Retailer of the Year, GQ Magazine’s Best Menswear Shop and runner up to Harrods in Department Store of the Year 2012.

Join us to not only hear Steve’s inspirational journey, but for a chance to shop after hours and enjoy some festive cheers with your peers.

Don’t forget to reserve your place; there’s really no time like the present!
