Roman Originals was established in 1957. This family owned business was originally a manufacturing business based in Birmingham. The company has retained its heritage and passion for Ladieswear, and has grown and developed its retail interests. Today the company designs and manufactures its own range of Ladies clothing and accessories, which it now retails in over 150 outlets, across the United Kingdom. The name Roman Originals derived from an inspiration of Italian fabrics and raw materials as well as the unique way in which over 1000 styles are merchandised annually. The core ranges include Daywear, Eveningwear, Workwear, Outerwear, Special Occasion Clothing as well as a comprehensive range of bespoke accessories and hats. In 1994 Roman Originals brand first hit the High Street in a concession format. During the late 1990's the company began opening its own stores, initially in Outlet centres nationwide. Roman Originals merchandises and distributes its ranges using its own skilled team, allowing the company to respond quickly to changes in trends and react to peaks in business.
