Harrods is synonymous with luxury. One of the world’s great brands, it has a reputation for exceptional quality and style whether it’s clothing, beauty, gifts or fine wine and food. The concept that you can get anything at Harrods is part of its history, and inspired the motto of ‘Anything is possible’.
The Harrods journey began in 1832 as a grocery store in South London. Since those early years, it has evolved and grown its range of products, eventually moving into its current landmark location in exclusive Knightsbridge, London. Today, it has more than 300 luxury departments, attracts more than 15 million visitors each year and is ranked in the top three of London attractions.
The latest development in the store’s evolution is the two-year transformation of its iconic food halls. Dubbed ‘the taste revolution’, it creates a magical, sensory experience for all visitors to the store to enjoy.
Part of the transformation of the food hall was to refresh the staff uniforms. The brief was to create a distinctive look while maintaining maximum functionality – especially important in food serving areas. The uniforms include bespoke classic waistcoats, shirts and jackets as well as aprons. The uniforms are in the Harrods brand colours: a distinctive green with gold accents.
‘’Nowhere else will there be such a combination of skill, creativity, experience, outstanding service and variety of food offered in the beauty of a Grade II*-listed environment.’’ Alex Dower, Harrods’ Director of Food & Restaurants
