UDDA Jackets was founded by Mark Huggins whose working life began as a fashion model at the age of 15 which grew to a successful career as a communications specialist spanning across TV, Radio, LIVE Events and voice acting.
After years of supporting several global clothing brands as a brand ambassador whilst working as a presenter, he decided it was time to launch his own high fashion leather jacket brand. UDDA, pronounced UDDER said with an Urban London accent, as in your OTHER jacket.
UDDA boasts 2 distinct collections. the first UDDA Classic Collection brings together 20 of the most desired jacket styles over the last 50 years all reworked to fit todays fashion conscious who now have a place to find all those timeless classics. The second is UDDA (U) Label the couture collection of short run unique show piece jackets that appeal to the true fashionistas.
Mark is a self-confessed serial entrepreneur, he sits on the board of directors of several companies as their communication specialist. The companies he chooses to be part of are all focussed on global sustainability so it was imperative that UDDA fit in with the rest of his brands. UDDA is now a fully sustainable and eco-friendly fashion house creating stunning high fashion pieces that have zero impact on mother nature or human beings.
The UDDA Brand is extremely unique as the entire process from concept to finished jackets is all done in house. At its foundation is the factory that boast over 25 years of leather manufacturing, as the newly appointed director, Mark assembled an elite team of gurus to drive his vision for a new fashion brand forward. In less than 6 months from signing off the key pieces for the launch collections Mark and his team delivered a brand that is gaining momentum with celebrities and the international press.
Moving forward, UDDA will support global causes via its THINK OF UDDAS collections. In 2017 this concept launched with our jackets to raise awareness and much-needed funds for breast cancer charities across the UK and there is still SO much more to come in 2018.
