LIZZIE BURCKHARDT, FOUNDER NEEDLE KNitwear

Needle has fast become one of the most exciting new fashion brands to come out of Britain. 

Following a career chapter working in product development at fashion giant L.K. Bennett, Lizzie found a design partner in Emma Baressi, formerly of Burberry, and decided to pursue her dream of creating a fashion label of her own. 

Specialising in beautiful knitwear pieces to wear all year round, a Needle piece is instantly recognisable for its elevated quality and clever use of colour. 

Needle has developed a loyal customer following, as well as cultivating relationships with a core selection of quality stockists, including an exclusive collaboration with international fashion retailer Anthropologie in 2016.
