Paying tribute to founder David Nieper, who has died age 90

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Mr David Nieper has died. He passed away peacefully on Wednesday, 11 August.

David Nieper established his fashion brand David Nieper Ltd 60 years ago – this year being the diamond anniversary.

The company and people were his life’s passion. Decades of loyal customers inspired him to always go the extra mile in designing and making beautiful clothes in Britain, and he worked tirelessly with his team until his final days.

Over the years the family company has grown from a fledgling business to an international fashion brand employing over 300 staff. In recent years, David focused on the collections and creative direction of the brand, working alongside his son Christopher Nieper OBE, company CEO.

David recorded his memoirs and his fascinating journey in building the David Nieper brand in his book, Persistence Wins published in 2019.

His creativity, flair for style and joie de vivre will live on in his collections to be enjoyed by customers across the globe.

His quick wit and sense of humour will be remembered fondly, by all who knew and worked with him.

David celebrated his 90th birthday last month surrounded by his family. The family and everyone at David Nieper Ltd will miss him enormously.

Further announcements will be made in due course.
