New clothes store for Yumi mummies in Hatfield

A HIGH street fashion label has opened up it’s latest store in Hatfield.

Yumi, the most recent clothing range from designer Uttam Nepal, has set up shop at The Galleria, becoming the company’s 12th store across the country.

Originally from Nepal in South Asia, Uttam began selling knitwear from a stall in Camden Market in 1994, where he

His style embraced traditional Nepalese, Indian and Japanese womenswear and accessories, and his hand made designs found favour with the trend setters of North London.

The continuing growth and success of the Uttam brand led to the opening of the first Uttam store in Portobello Road in 1998, followed by the launch of the Uttam Direct website.
