Many famous British retail names are represented in the Los
Angeles area. Most of these are in the fashion and luxury goods
businesses, in which Britain excels. Asprey, Graff, Burberry,
Turnbull and Asser and Alfred Dunhill are on Rodeo Drive.
Stella McCartney, Alice Temperley, Paul Smith, Jimmy Choo, Alexander
McQueen and Karen Millen are on Melrose. Zandra Rhodes, another
legendary British designer, lives in Southern California. Iconic
British cars such as Bentley and Jaguar are best sellers in
California. Other British retailers include Tesco
(trading in California as “Fresh and Easy Neighborhood Markets”), WH
Smith, Body Shop and Boots. BritWeek 2012 will once again produce the BritWalk Mapy of the British retail establishments in LA and Orange Counties.
