They were named Miss Bonwit. He adapted the idea for Selfridges as a section for young fashion. It was officially opened in 1966. Miss Selfridge then had various concessions across the country in department stores by 1967, then between that time and 1969 many independent Miss Selfridge branches were setup. Miss Selfridge was then bought up by Sir Phillip Green's Arcadia Group on July 1999. It is now part of a larger collection of high street brands including Topman, Burton, Evans, Dorothy Perkins, Topshop, Outfit and Wallis.
