Why are skirts so hard to find?

Friday, February 28, 2020

Now here's a thing. In the UK we are fans of wearing skirts as an alternative to trousers; ladies on the continent however, opt for dresses. Why do we have different tastes?

Germany Here We Come - Again!

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

It's hard to believe but it's time for us to visit Düsseldorf again.

Every six months we board a plane at Leeds Bradford airport and fly to Germany to look at the next year's fashion ranges from our best selling collections. The aim is to bring back the cream of what's on show, taking into account our customers' likes and dislikes. This time we'll be looking for Spring and Summer outfits for 2020.
