Part of the larger company Arcadia Group Ltd, Evens has grown in popularity and is now a high store regular with over 200 stores in the UK and Island. Not to mention the 80 or so stores throughout the rest of Europe and Asia.
Women and men everywhere have the Arcadia group Ltd to thank not just for Evans but for brands such as Topshop/man, Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins/Burtons.
Specialising in clothes for the more curvy of women, Evans offers a wide verity of ranges of clothes in many styles and fabric. All designed to flatter any figure.
Founded in 1930 by Jack Green, the limited company was then run by his brother in law until 1971, when the Burton group brought the business and it became a public company for the first time. 1974 saw the introduction of the mail order service. This lifted Evans off the ground even higher and they began to soar.
Ever expanding over the next decade or so. 1988 saw this unique set of stores recognized as one of the top retailors in plus size women’s fashion. Amazing hold 30% of the UK size 20 to 32 market by 1993.
This reputation has not left them since then. Voted, every year since 2000 by the Prima high street fashion awards, as the best 16+ retailor. As well as other prestigious recognitions. Business is booming.
Many ladies with curves have a hard time when they try to shop for clothes, standard retailors just don’t order enough of the bigger sizes. The charm of Evans is that these women can shop in comfort and convenience all the while knowing this shop has been designed with them in mind.
In more recent years as a testament to their success Evans has seen itself appear in Vogue for the first time, a great honour for any clothing store. While 2009 saw a range of clothing launched by the singer/songwriter Beth Ditto. Impressive.
