Lost In Topshop Translation

It’s fifteen degrees outside and it’s the middle of winter. As if living in New Zealand wasn’t good already, my friend recently informed me there is a Topshop just ten minutes down the road. Why would one ever want to leave such a place!?   Said friend has a car so one, fine Saturday (did [...]

A New Way To Shop

When online shopping first reared its tempting head, the cynical among us said it would never work. “We won’t be able to try it on! How will we know if it fits?”  Fast forward ten years and the first online designer boutique, net-a-porter sells its success for over 50 million. So it seems unsurprising that [...]

I have completely worn out my pair of brown buckled leather ankle boots from last winter and since the sun appears to have gone for another year, I hate to admit it but I’m already hunting for new distinctive winter boots and cosy jumpers. Consequently I have fallen in love with the Autumn/Winter footwear collections [...]

Abercrombie & Fitch – Is The Shopping Experience As Important As The Shopping?

It’s 4pm on a cold Thursday afternoon and clothing store Abercrombie & Fitch on Fifth Avenue, New York City, is pandemonium.  To the innocent passer-by, the store could be mistaken for a nightclub.  Customers are expected to queue to get into the store and a long line of chattering, cold shoppers has already snaked around [...]

Online Shopping Boom

I have a shameful confession, something that my fashion loving friends would be shocked by. OK…of all the amazing shopping I have enjoyed I have never, ever, bought clothes online. There, I said it. My confession is even more shocking when you consider figures of last month’s internet shopping  sales rose by 21% on last [...]
