River Island was originally founded back in 1948 as a shop selling knitting wool. It later expanded to nine stores under the name Lewis Separates. By 1965 there were 70 stores across the UK and the company was rebranded to the name Chelsea Girl, named after King’s Road in Chelsea became a fashion hub. The company expanded into menswear in 1982 before the two companies were merged to become River Island in 1988. In 1993, international expansion became a focal point for the company as it launched in the Republic of Ireland. Stores later followed in the likes of the Middle East, Poland and Russia.
