I IT’S BEEN NIGH ON impossible to open a newspaper recently without being bombarded with information on London Fashion Week. Coverage of the movers and shakers in the world of haute couture seems a world away from our peripheral high street collections. If you fancy sampling a little bit of catwalk glamour, why not head down to Dynamic Earth on Thursday 24 February when the Red Cross are hosting a charity fashion show and party. Get there early to perfect the front- row ‘contemplative’ look - we dare you. Tickets are 225 from 0131 550 7800.
I HEAD DOWN TO YOUR local participating Boots store on Saturday 5 October for a five minute mini-makeover. For a small donation of £2. you can be pampered and preened by the No.7 consultants who will try out the latest colours in the cosmetics range. The day is part of Boots' ‘Be Up Front' campaign which aims to raise awareness of breast cancer. Pick up a leaflet in store which
details their 5-point breast awareness code, or for 21 you can be the proud owner of their rather groovy pink sequinned ribbon. All proceeds go to Breast Cancer Care. For more info go to www.breastcancer care.org.uk
I WITH THE ARRIVAL of Harvey Nicks and H&M, Edinburgh’s shopping landscape is really looking up. While there’s still plenty room for improvement, the recent development in Debenhams’ Princes Street branch is another step in the right direction. The women’s department has been boosted by new concessions including Jane Norman, Faith shoes, Warehouse and Morgan. The concessions are hidden away at the Rose Street entrance to the building, but are well worth taking the time to check out, if only for their vast fitting rooms.
I AS MENTIONED IN last issue's Shoptalk, we‘re now even more excited about the imminent opening of Glasgow’s BoConcept store having received a copy of their new catalogue. Just picture the cutting edge style of IKEA fused with the quality and luxury of Habitat and you're halfway there. The Princes Square store opens on Friday 1 November.
