Young Ones Apparel is for dreamers, change makers and people who know that the fun of being young and energetic beginswith implementing the brilliant ideas one has and working hard to bring a change, all this while still playing hard!
Created by college roommates Chris Rea and Tom Carson back in 2012, Young Ones has grown to provide quality, classy and affordable attire to the youth. Their hard work bore fruits when they were invited to BBC’s Dragons Den and offered £75,000. Surprisingly, after thinking carefully, they decided to decline the offer and independently run Young Ones, without giving up 40% of it.
Their products range from tees to Parka coats, and are the true definition of uniqueness and sophistication. Because Young Ones is all about making the most of your youth, they offer opportunities to young designers, models, interns and photographers.
