Primark for Selfridge's?!!

Primark will be selling clothes in Selfridge's. It is true.

A big step up in the fashion world with the Bargain Primark franchise being sold in a fashionable well known store such as Selfridge's.
Selfridge's known for its designer labels.

It shows the growing trend for fast fashion with many stores such as Jane Norman struggling in the recent climate.

The store will be hosting Primark in the Bullring, Birmingham, on Monday, followed by another concession at Selfridge's store in Manchester's Trafford Centre in the middle of November.

"Revealing the move, trade magazine Retail Week said it was the first time Primark will have opened a concession anywhere. It is understood the two firms were in talks for more than a year over the collaboration."

"Insiders say that as yet there are no plans to extend the tie-up to Selfridge's Oxford Street flagship store or its branch in Exchange Square, central Manchester."

It should boost menswear sales and create a new consumer from this new franchise. Prices will be remaining low.

Towie Takeover

Personally I can not stand The Only Way Is Essex, but it seems the public have a love for the high matinence Essex style with the new retail collaboration by Sam and Billie Fairs.

The new line, from Sam and Billie is called 'GraciEve'.
From tomorrow it will be avaliable in 15 House Of Fraser stores nationwide, and online.

Here is a sneak peek:

Dress, £60, by GraciEve

Top, £48; shorts, £42

Taking an objective view on Towie I have to say the line is very bold. The garments seem overpriced, however I can see it being a hit with young teenagers and fans.

It seems Lauren is showcasing her collection soon aswell.
And so it continues, what will be next for this reality infatuation...?

Wannabe designers heading to university you are going the wrong way to create your own line, reality television is apparently all the credentials you need.

Trend Style: Sixties Revival

Want a new style but don't have the time to scour the high street. Well i've done it for you..

New stylish shoes with a gorgeous quirky floral print team up with leather for an edge or with a cute peter pan dress for girlie perfection.


Adorn yourself with this gem, a glam fake fur collar at a steal for £12.99..

H&M: The A/W Coat Of Choice.

The winter coat is a staple and if chosen correctly can see you through many long winters. A winter jacket should be timeless, fashionable and well made.
I have looked at H&M for three winter coats:

Jacket £79.99

A fail safe leather jacket with an edge. The gorgeous russet brown is bold and smart; complimented with black woven sleeves and a subtle black neckline that adds character and class. The simple drawwaist creates a ladylike silhouette.

Parka £69.99

The parka makes a return. The khaki is back on the high street. This parka is perfect in the winter weather, substainable, suitable and fashionable. A feminine drawstring waist highlights the waist with a detachable fur trim for different looks.  It's very chic.

For the money-conscious who still haven't made their mind up, here's my other possibility:

Coat £24.99

A gorgeous double-breasted coat avaliable in black, blue or my personal favourite light camel. The character of this jacket makes this a steal at £24.99.

So good luck picking your A/W coat, choose wisely...
