Debenhams is expected to confirm that it has signed London Fashion Week designer Henry Holland as part of an expansion to its Designers at Debenhams range at its pre-close trading update next week.

Holland, who is best known for his bright slogan t-shirts, is expected to design a young fashion range for the department store, according to the Financial Times.

The department store is also reported to be announcing a second new guest designer to join Jasper Conran, John Rocha and Matthew Williamson, who already produce collections under the Designers At Debenhams concept.

Analysts are forecasting pre-tax profits for Debenhams of £121m in the year to August 30, up from £110m last year.
