Giselle ladieswear is an independent retailer of quality ladies fashions.
They offer a wide variety of designer wear labels from around the world and are continually introducing new designers to provide the customer with the latest "must have" look.
Giselle ladieswear as a business was established in 1986, by husband and wife team of Colin and Karen Smith. The York outlet was opened in Low Petergate in the heart of the historic city just along from the Minster.
The aim was to provide high quality ladies fashions with a high level of personal service. Based on these principles the business grew continually and in November 1992 a second shop was opened in the centre of the east Yorkshire market town of Pocklington.
Both shops are now well established and have become cornerstones of the local fashion retailing network, each with their own loyal customer following.

Charli London is a new brand based on easy luxe separates with a core of super-soft jersey basics, clean and refined silhouettes are introduced to an avant-garde urban provocative ideal and edited into an accessible collection. Like the brand itself, women who wear Charli stand out. The collection is the essence of a new wave of London style- wearable, unpretentious and alluring. What started as a small cult following in the creative heart of London has spiralled into a brand which is now available around the world. Sensual and raw fabrics can be paired up for a city feel in the week and relaxed sophistication at the weekend. Charli continues to create perfect fitting, elegant designs which can be worn belted or loose, layered or on its-own. Every Style can be worn dressed-up or dressed-down- worn with current trends or worn classically. The core-basics such as signature long camisole vests, palazzo pants and yoga trousers continue each season- with the collection being updated each season with specially developed fabrics, beautiful natural colour palettes and directional designs, each garment is made using both traditional and innovative high-fashion techniques to ensure the best possible quality and cut.
Always aspiring, always renewed, modern luxury.
Marc Jacobs has become the first major fashion house to announce its making a collection in sizes above a UK 14.
Although the project is a while off the president of the designer label confirmed on Twitter "we are in the very beginning stages of talking to a partner about plus sizes", meaning women size 16 and above will no longer feel so ignored by high end fashion.
