Whatever the season there is always one item that dominates our wardrobes and gets worn more often than anything else; it's commonly known in the fashion industry as 'the hero piece' and this year it's the gilet!
We've had some very unseasonable and extreme weather this year and forecasters are predicting yet another hard winter. Fingers crossed that they have got it wrong but either way, it's a good idea to think ahead and get ready for winter. The sooner you look, the better choice you will have (or as someone once said: see it, like it, buy it -otherwise you'll regret it!).
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.
The fashion house has a name for beautifully designed and expertly made blouses, shirts and tunic tops using modern shapes, a myriad of fabrics and the clever use of patterns and colour to put them at the forefront of the fashion world. If you're fashion conscious then you really should take a close look at the ERFO collection.
We approached our buying trip to Germany with a little trepidation given the current Brexit situation, wondering what kind of reception we would receive. In fact, little was said and we were made to feel very welcome, as usual.
