About Us

Our History


Back in 1968 when Eric and Hilda Bull first opened Harlequin as a fabric shop in Epping High Street they could have little idea how the business would grow and evolve and the unique position that Harlequin would come to occupy within the fashion world.

The garment and fashion industry has changed hugely over the past fifty years but Harlequin has continued to thrive and we still cherish that commitment to quality of service and product that Eric and Hilda had when they first started the company.

Our small but highly-skilled workforce have all been with us for years and years and it is their passion and devotion that ensures our unique position in the world of fashion.

Neil Stock OBE

Managing Director

We are famous for our fabric belts, covered buttons, clutch bags and ties, which bring the world’s top designers to us looking for our superb quality, fast turnaround and our passion for what we do.

Our commitment to quality and service has seen us thrive and survive during the financial crisis and our commercial client list reads like a Who’s Who of British and International Fashion Design.
