Whilst other businesses go on holiday in August, the fashion world goes buying. Along with my business partner Steve, I've spent the best part of August surrounded by some of the world's most beautiful clothes. Tough job this! Champagne, catwalk shows, chatting with designers.
In fact - it is quite tiring and not always as glamorous as it sounds - lots of walking around the NEC in Birmingham, pounding the pavement in London from one fashion house to another ( avoiding the rioters on the way!) and trying to choose dresses and outfits for our massive customer base. One minute I am trying to get inside the mind of a sixteen year old, size 2 prom girl, the next I am choosing mother of the bride outfits in a size 24. It's certainly varied!
Here at Fab Frocks, we've got some stunning collections for next spring that will start arriving from late November onwards. It's great unpacking beautiful and bright clothes when it is freezing cold outside. Really cheers the spirits. There's lots of new names we will be adding to our label collection too and we've worked hard to bring outfits for mums of the bride and groom that are well under £500. So, as I start to sort out my own winter wardrobe, find my jumpers and coats - I look forward already to spring.
