Ted Baker recently launched a standalone womenswear store in London’s Covent Garden and opened an outlet in Gatwick’s North Terminal.

It announced that it had opened three stores in Dubai, Kuala Lumpur and Taiwan through licensees.

'We remain dedicated to the careful global expansion of the brand in the Far East and Asia, through our licence partners and we plan to open new stores in Dublin and Brighton in the second half of the year,' said the company.
