Fashion Industry Stalwart Peter Mitchell Passes Away

Peter Mitchell, publisher and apparel industry stalwart, passed away on Monday 30th May 2022.

Under the ownership of Peter Mitchell, the company, Review Publishing and its stable of magazines grew from strength to strength cementing its publications’ position in each of its respected industries. This included that of industry leading publication, Apparel which he founded in 1969. In recent years, under the stewardship of Tania Walters and other members of Peter’s family, has continued to establish itself as an authority on all things apparel, retail and fashion, expanding its reach with its print and digital offerings.
