Catherine Kidston MBE
Known for her custom floral prints and furnishings, will the much loved interior designer be making an appearance on Dragons' Den?
Interior designer Catherine “Cath” Kidston is known for her namesake home and accessories brand which has become a household favourite; worth an estimated £250m. A perfect replacement for Hoppen, Kidston sold the majority share of the company to a private equity firm in 2010 and, although she still operates as creative director, theoretically the millionairess has time on her hands to invest in emerging start-ups.
More over, the entrepreneur has been recently quoted as saying she wants her home design brand to “stand on its own feet and be independent” – could a move to angel investing be on the cards?
