Celebrating 30 years of Dalziel + Pow

It was quite like old times for me this week when I was very pleased to drop in to the party to celebrate 30 years of that excellent retail design agency, Dalziel + Pow

The company has created some memorable retail environments and brands since 1983. River Island, Primark, Next, John Lewis, Topshop and Levi Strauss are among the businesses that have benefited from D+P’s expertise and there was no shortage of very senior executives at the party in Covent Garden to join in the fun. Here is co-founder David Dalziel with Next CEO Lord (Simon) Wolfson.

Richard Bradbury, former MD at River Island, with Mr Dalziel, who has been a good pal to me for years. He brightened up many a session at a Drapers conference in the old days.

Alas, I had to depart before this rather lovely cake was sliced. I must hang around longer at Dalziel + Pow’s 40th birthday bash in 10 years’ time.
