Project Overview


The team designed PrettyLittleThing's Headquarters, in Manchester. Turning their reception, meet and greet area, cafe and social space and meeting rooms into something extraordinary. The project was a celebration of pink aesthetics, with various shades and tones to create a captivating and inviting atmosphere. The result was nothing short of a "wow factor", offering a vibrant and creative workspace. Every aspect of this project was meticulously crafted to meet branding guide lines and to make sure the space was a true reflection of the brand.

Brand History 

"PrettyLittleThing," a prominent fast fashion brand, is a part of the Boohoo Group, founded by Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane in 2006. The brand has gained fame for its online presence and trendy clothing offerings. It's intriguing to note that this fashion empire had humble beginnings, commencing its operations in a small, leaky-roofed porta cabin. This rags-to-riches journey exemplifies the remarkable success story of PrettyLittleThing within the fast-paced world of online retail.

Client Testimonial 

“Standing Space worked with PrettyLittleThing to redesign our community and agile spaces at our Headquarters in the heart of Manchester.

Their approach was refreshing, and they worked tirelessly to achieve the correct look and feel and really understood our brand vision. Our aim was to capture the essence of what makes PLT such a fun and vibrant place to work. Stepping into our pink wonderland our staff and VIP visitors can enjoy stand out photo opportunities as well as our newly refurbished PLT Café and break out meeting rooms. We loved working with the team and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Standing Space Ltd.”
