SUCCESS STORY: Radlett resident hosts pop-up shop for clothing brand

 Published on: 18th May 2023   |   By: Megan Milstead   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Radlett resident recently launched his own pop-up shop in London.

Jake Posner first started his streetwear fashion label, NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING, as an online retailer. He opened his debut shop on Great Windmill Street from April 27-30, allowing people to buy his designs in person for the first time ever.

The entrepreneur hasn’t let his dyslexia get in the way of his dreams. After being kicked out of school at age 16 with only one GCSE, he wanted to create something that would inspire others and help to create positive change.

He launched the brand when he was 27 years old with the aim of making a change in fashion, the environment, and people’s perceptions. He also wanted to raise awareness of dyslexia, something he has lived with his whole life.

Speaking before the shop opened, Jake said: “Being dyslexic has allowed me to think in a completely unique way. People look at dyslexia as only affecting reading and writing, but for me, it has also affected my organisation and timekeeping.

“But dyslexia allowed me to be skilled in other areas, such as design and storytelling. It has had its challenges and it can be very frustrating, but I embrace it and use it to benefit me.

“NO ONE TRUE ANYTHING, to me, is so much more than high-end fashion; it is about creating a community where people want to belong, due to similarities and differences. I’m excited to welcome everyone to the store and demonstrate creativity, individuality and self-expression.”
