British Boutiques & Pure London


Following the successful launch of its unique web based fashion portal in June 2009, is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Pure London to promote all their London Fashion Events in 2010.
Commencing with the London Fashion exhibition in February 2010 held at Olympia London, both companies will be collaborating in a number of different ways including a website link to ensure that retailers have all the latest and up to date information on exhibitors, dates etc.
BRITISH BOUTIQUES is a state of the art fashion web portal and search engine for retailers, a cost effective alternative to own web site hosting with guaranteed visibility.
Conceived to enable retailers to benefit from the search engines ability to research and display Brands and Designers, fulfils the requirements of retailers by not only displaying what is happening in boutiques nationwide but also providing Brands and Designers with a platform to showcase their collections with online news and views of upcoming events in the British fashion industry.
The concept of this site is to enable Brands and Designers to display details of their forthcoming season collections, contact details and showroom dates, enabling retailers to source elusive and exclusive products to help grow and maintain their unique presence in the retail fashion arena and plan their diaries.
British Boutiques is working to consolidate the Fashion Industry into one unique web portal by bringing together retailers, brands and designers via a “virtual catwalk” to showcase the best the industry has to offer.

Beatrice Von Tresckow

Those of you who have already discovered her designs are aware that they feature vibrant and exciting colours, often embellished with elaborate beading and embroidery. These unique concepts have been influenced by her many years of living in India, Afghanistan and the Middle East, which, this year, once again, have inspired Beatrice to create another heady mix of colours, combining rich jewel coloured beads and embroidery designs, with sumptuous silks velvets and chiffons. This year she also travelled in Africa and China where she found even greater inspiration, more fantastic jewellery, fabrics and colours to add to my collections.

She is particularly thrilled that, in addition to there shops in Portobello and Cheltenham, they are now able to introduce the collection to you via the medium of on-line shopping.

"We will continue to attend our annual events and shows throughout the year, but through the on-line website will take the collection to a much wider audience, and as that includes you - welcome indeed!

"Our mission at Beatrice von Tresckow Designs is to maintain a personal service toyou at all times, however you choose to visit us. Our website has been designed to make your on-line shopping experience simple and enjoyable, and of course, we always look forward to seeing you again in our stores or at the shows. Please remember that I always welcome your feedback! It's great to hear from you, if your outfit has been a success but also, if you have ideas or comments on any other subjects that you wish to pass on to me regarding your experience with my company, I am always pleased to hear them"Beatrice

The Sex and the City Collection!

DOLCE V is very proud to introduce the Cosabella “Sex and the City” collection inspired by the show’s four main characters. Cosabella has managed to create these collections thanks to its longstanding relationship with “Sex and the City”, whose four characters wear Cosabella.
This “Sex and the City” collection consists of four beautifully styled lingerie groups, distinctively designed with the main characters - Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda - in mind.
The “Carrie” is based on Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic sense of style is designed in Black Rose, a tulle floral print on a black background with a contrasting animal printed viscose trim.
The sensational and racy “Samantha” collection is a sexy and seductive passion fruit vibrant colour that fittingly represents Samantha Jones’ personality.
The chic and classic design of the “Charlotte” collection features sweet and clean silhouettes created with Charlotte’s character in mind and designed in a luxurious blend of ultra-soft modal and ecological-innovative bamboo fibre.
The confident and cosmopolitan “Miranda” collection is designed in a vibrant blue violet colour on Cosabella’s famous tulle fabric with a contrasting scalloped lace trim in sky blue. The bold colour combination is classic yet fun and perfectly reflects Miranda Hobbs’ character

Wild Swans

'Imagine Scandinavia’s best fashion designers and all the unkown quirky secrets of Scandinavian fashion design. Then think of up and coming brands that are not yet exposed in the UK, combined with trained stylists in a very relaxed, Scandinavian, ethereal atmosphere. Add all of this up and you have WILD SWANS. The name comes from the fairy tale ‘The Wild Swans’ by Hans Christian Andersen. It perfectly describes the range of Designers as well the Customers..’ beautiful and gracious birds, yet ‘edgy’. The story behind Wild Swans is almost like a fairy tale: the Chiswick shop in the hip Devonshire Road opened in 2006 and was so successful that within one year another had opened in Cross Street, Islington and now a third shop has opened in Mill Hill Broadway in Spring 2009.
Caroline van Luthje's complete sense of combining what women want to wear to look fantastic and how they want to be treated is what has made her one of the most successful womenswear buyers in the UK today. Danish and proud of her Viking heritage Caroline has successfully introduced Scandinavian designers from Denmark, Norway and Sweden to the UK to give Wild Swans a complete Scandinavian concept. She has incorporated the Scandinavian style and helped make and influence what British Women are wearing.
Wild Swans like to make a real effort for their customers. Its very much about creating a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. Champagne is always served at the weekend and a basket full of toys is provided for children. Wild Swans embrace the idea of personal styling and many of the staff are experienced stylists. Wild Swans have special evenings in the shops where they invite the designers to present their collections.'

Having worked for many years as an artist in various disciplines; including performance art and installation, and with a background in fashion and consumer PR, Gráinne Maher brings together an array of interests and inspirations that feed her work.
