As soon as we have found our new boutique space, we’ll let you know via our website and will put an announcement in the local papers. We are also planning an exciting new clothing launch and catwalk show to coincide with the boutique opening. We expect to have a new premises during the summer but will keep you all posted!

London Fashion Week Report

Our assistant Hannah Hamlin went along to London Fashion Week earlier this month! Here's her report on Autumn/Winter '13 trends to watch out for. Next season looks to be exciting if February’s ‘London Fashion Week’ is anything to go by! Styles ranged from Asian culture, girly child-play and Sports Luxe; key trends emerged as kimono shapes, fire breathing dragons, pastels colours and embellishments. An essential trend to watch out for is slick, monochromatic tailoring as seen at Zoe Jordan and Christophe Lemaire. One thing for sure, print is here to stay. Bright colours and repeat patterns were shown on simple, classic shapes. There was lots of oversizing and neat finishings, with House of Holland pioneering this bold trend for Autumn/Winter ‘13. Next season is set to be a greatly assorted and sensational season with a huge clash of styles, colours and shapes; something gorgeous for everyone!
