'The big shift is to make more than half of what we sell unique to John Lewis. It's a challenge, but we are already seeing success with it,' says Christine Kasoulis, who, having reinvented John Lewis' Home collections, now heads up a Buying and Design team of 210, and whose focus is to build a £500m own-label fashion business. Central to that push are the niche own-label brands including Kin, Modern Rarity and, the most recent launch, AND/OR, that have had phenomenal success - last year sales of own-brand womenswear grew by 14.9 percent.
