Leading High Street Retailer Likes The Look Of Quiz Clothing As Debenhams Takes Brand On Board

Quiz There’s no questioning the continued success of online women’s fashion retailer Quiz Clothing – it has just secured an exciting deal which will see its products showcased by leading high street store Debenhams.

Exciting lines, including party dresses, from the Quiz Clothing range, which are already a big hit with style-savvy online buyers, can now be seen and bought at 10 of the top high street retailer’s stores, with a couple more due to follow any time.

Right now, you can find dedicated Quiz Clothing departments in the following Debenhams stores: Bristol, Coventry, Gloucester, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Sheffield, Slough, Southampton, Staines and Sunderland, while two more – in Croydon and Luton – will get their own dedicated departments very soon.

Haroun Saleemi, Ecommerce Manager at Quiz Clothing is delighted that the move will see the brand exposed to potentially millions more shoppers.

“Debenhams is known right across the UK for the wide choice and great value offered in its 150-plus stores, which are a fixture on high streets up and down the country,” he said, “and for Quiz Clothing to be given stand-alone departments in these stores is a tremendous endorsement of our own philosophy, to offer right up-to-the-minute designs at down-to-earth prices.”

Quiz Clothing already has more than 160 stores of its own worldwide, but Haroun Saleemi added: “We’re sure our relationship with Debenhams will bring us many more loyal and prized customers, especially as they already shop with a company whose name is a by-word for quality clothing, both in-store and online.”

You can find Debenhams’ Quiz Clothing store at http://www.debenhams.com/women/quiz, or visit the company’s own, highly successful, website, at www.quizclothing.com.

Maxi dresses were recently described by hello! magazine as “comfortable, effortless, versatile” and suitable “for all occasions”, and going by the number of celebrities who have a range of maxi dresses in their wardrobe, the secret is already out.

Quiz’s range of floral print, one shoulder dresses with silver jewel and sequin embroidery come in a range of colours including nude and pink, cream and coral, blue and pink. Whatever the occasion there is sure to be a design to suit.

Haroun Saleemi, Ecommerce Manager at Quiz said: “We’re in love with the range of new maxi dresses. The designs and floral patterns are perfect for creating that fresh, spring/summer look and one of the best things about this style of dress is that it is suitable for such a variety of occasions, from a trip to the shops to an evening meal out.

“The right accessories can make maxi dresses even more versatile. Slip on a trendy denim jacket or a pretty shrug when the temperature dips and you can stay on trend without having to suffer at the hands of the unpredictable British weather.”

These maxi dresses are available now through Quiz’s website, along with a huge number of other collections and women’s clothing ranges, from bodycon dresses and party dresses to court shoes and accessories. Following the website’s recent redesign, online shoppers now also have the chance to see how a complete outfit will look by using the virtual fitting room service.

Quiz Customers Queuing To Get In New Virtual Fitting Room

A new virtual fitting room, designed to let online shoppers using the website of fashion retailer Quiz see how they might look in their chosen outfit, has gone down a storm with customers.

The UK-based women’s clothing specialist unveiled the feature at the end of 2011, following a major makeover of its website.

By clicking on the ‘fitting room’ tab of Quiz’s website, users can take control of a 3D avatar which they are able to alter to reflect their own body. Height, weight, bra size, waist and hip measurements can all be altered, along with hair colour, to make the virtual model as realistic as possible. Once a customer has created their model, they can select their chosen items of clothing from the site and build up an outfit, using everything from evening dresses and maxi dresses to jewellery and footwear.

When the user has come up with their very own classic outfit, there is no need to keep it a secret. Instead, they can print out the image to show to friends, or share it over the internet using Facebook and Twitter.

Haroun Saleemi – E-commerce Manager at Quiz said: “The idea behind the virtual fitting room was to take our online shopping experience a step further, and make it easier than ever for women to get a feel for the huge range of dresses, footwear and accessories that we have available online.

“One of the comments we kept hearing from customers was about how much of a difference it would make to be able to get more of an idea how an item of clothing would actually look. From the feedback we’ve received so far, the virtual fitting room has made that a reality and customers are really making the most of it.”

Additional changes to the website include a new sleek design, along with an updated navigation system to make getting around the site quicker and easier. Information on store availability has also been added, so shoppers who want to try Quiz’s clothes on for real can make sure their items are in stock at their local outlet.

Topshop Pledges Continued Support for NEWGEN and Fashion East

Topshop has announced that it will continue to sponsor the NEWGEN and Fashion East schemes, and is the single biggest supporter of emerging fashion talent in London.

As always, Topshop customers had unrivalled access to the fashion industry’s key players during London Fashion Week and Topshop’s support of young London designers came to life in the Oxford Circus store as well as at Somerset House.

An area of the Oxford Circus store has been transformed into a creative fashion space, where visitors can pick up a collectable bookmark for each NEWGEN designer containing ten fashion facts. Each bookmark has a QR code which customers can use to trigger specifically tailored video content. There will be Samsung Galaxy tablets available for customers to use for this purpose. Each film allows customers a unique look into a particular NEWGEN designer’s studio to discover their inspiration and their career defining moments.

As well as creative master classes and live Q&As with industry insiders, there was a screen showing London Fashion Week catwalk shows, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, together with the NEWGEN designer films.

The designers featured in the film are: Louise Gray, JW Anderson, Nasir Mazhar, Felicity Brown, Heikki Salonen and Thomas Tait.

This year will see Topshop sponsoring Lulu Kennedy’s Fashion East for the 16th season. This is vital for nurturing new talent – many Fashion East designers often go on to be awarded NEWGEN sponsorship.

Since 2001, Topshop has sponsored the British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN scheme. The most established initiative to nurture up-and-coming designers, NEWGEN awards sponsorship for catwalk, exhibition, presentation and installation opportunities.

Topshop Announces Christmas Collections With A Behind The Scenes Video

Topshop has revealed its new collections for Christmas 2010; Snow Queen, New Puritan, Demi Couture and Abigail’s Party, all available online and in store. The clothing retailer has also released a behind the scenes video highlighting the individual style of each collection.

Snow Queen is inspired by the textures of the natural world and drifts through the snow-covered landscape in billowing chiffon, toughened up with feathers and fur. Sheer mesh tops and dresses are scattered with crystals, whilst fine silver lace knits are reminiscent of suits of armour. Studs and spikes are replaced with chains and chainmail, whilst fur, feather and fluffy marabou trims decorate tops and dresses. Dresses are long and frothy, or cut short at the front with a dramatic train at the back. The Snow Queen girl makes a dramatic statement in a look straight out of the pages of a fairytale.

Evoking the new minimalism that is taking hold of wardrobes, the New Puritan collection draws inspiration from a medieval, puritanical era. The spray-on body con, studs and spikes of previous trends are replaced, with a focus on a new clean, straight-cut silhouette and a mood of softened austerity. Razor sharp tailoring is key and includes tuxedo suits, waistcoats and lean cigarette pants. Capes are also important, and have an almost Vatican-inspired appeal. Alongside tailoring, evening shifts and tunics also feature in leather and velvet. The New Puritan girl makes a statement of simplicity.

The third collection in Topshop’s Christmas offering, Demi Couture offers up mini dresses in candy colours, inspired by ’60s party dressing. Baby doll dresses are worn with fur or marabou tippets, whilst shell tops are teamed with matching flared trousers and pussy bow blouses come in jewel colours. The silhouette is neat and tidy, often with a flick hem, but the fabrics are richly textured, and include boucles, tweeds, heavy guipure lace, appliqué and Lesage embroidery techniques. Jewels and embellishments add further interest. Colours include butterscotch, peppermint and nectarine.

Topshop Reveals Its Unique Autumn Winter 2010 Collection

Following the Brownie motto of ‘Be Prepared’, the Unique Autumn Winter 2010 outerwear has been designed to be protective and functional, whilst luxurious fake furs and delicate chiffons evoke a woodland wildlife feel.

Topshop Reveals Its Unique Autumn Winter 2010 Collection

“The inspiration was looking at two elements. One was going camping in the woods and then once you are in the woods it almost goes into a twisted Narnia type environment”, commented Jacqui Markham, Topshop Joint Head of Design. “There’s 30 designers in the team and they just bring to the table all their different ideas, and we try and create a bit of a theme, a bit of a hook, that we can tailor the collection around.”

Defending against the elements, saddle brown battered leather parkas are cosy with quilted linings and shrunken waxed cotton jackets in uniform blue and khaki brown appear in a swing shape and cropped gilet. Duffle coats and trenches keep out the cold with reversed sheepskin linings on the outside of the body and voluminous wool scarves and cable knit socks offering an extra layer of warmth. Berry coloured corduroy tailoring with leather panelling gives a modern twist on traditional countrywear, whilst loden green wools in a boxy jacket, pencil skirt and short shorts look more rugged and are adorned with Girl Guide inspired award badges. Old fashioned pyjama-esque striped slouchy cotton trousers and shirts continue the idea of a camping trip in the wilderness.

Practical details feature throughout; skirts have suspender strapping, belts have release buckles and sheepskin bags secured by harnesses have old-fashioned binoculars and torches as charms. Canvas and leather lace-up boots are sturdy with multiple buckles and detachable ankle covers and mini pouches.

Offsetting the utility/survival feel of the collection, prints and fabrics are heavily influenced by woodland creatures and nature. The sumptuous teddy bear fur coat is reminiscent of a grizzly bear, fluffy mittens are paw-like, and shoe boots are adorned with tufts of sheepskin. In contrast, soft chiffon blouses and dresses with hand-crafted crochet and lace panels conjure up an image of a warped fantasy world full of woodland nymphs and fairies. Mushrooms, clovers and twigs are scattered across jersey vests whilst wild wolves, deers, rabbits and owls hide within the camouflage ‘Woodland print’ but stand out in their full glory as headdresses.

Karen Bonser, Topshop Head of Design, said, “To be at London Fashion Week alongside so many credible and talented designers, it’s a great thing for Topshop to be able to do and to support British fashion.”

Bina Apparel Launches a Delicious Line of Fashion Wear for Toddlers and Girls

Fashion upstart Bina Apparel today announced the launch of their first original line of Girls apparel. “This is an exciting time for us” says founder and CEO of Bina Apparel Maria Urdinarrain “Our line reintroduces the classic, clean lines, artfulness and fine workmanship that little girls’ clothing is sorely missing in today’s market.”

The new line debuts girl’s fashion for toddlers (24 months) up to 7 years of age in dresses, separates and outerwear. Inspired from a vintage style, the line adapts warm tones, exceptional fabrics, incredible attention to detail and fine craftsmanship. Details include pintucking, appliqué embroidery, pockets, and pleats.

The color combinations are a delectable blend of currant, grape, plum, chocolate and sage, intentionally imbuing a sense of tradition and polished taste. Bolder tonal accent colors finish the look for a smart, feminine vibe. The pallet is a refreshing burst of earthy tones and wholesome shades.

The entire line relies heavily on natural fibers and ease of care for busy families. Dresses are 100% cotton sateen and separates are 95%/5% cotton/lycra blend for machine-wash and wear cleaning. The outerwear coats are high-quality wool blend tweed with 100% cotton flannel lining to keep little hearts warm and snuggly. With coats like this, you’ll welcome the cooler weather.

The line is scheduled to debut for the Fall/Winter 2010 season. It will be available to show starting mid-February and available for delivery in-store starting in August. The company will be supporting wholesale distribution, but will maintain small online retail availability for areas where distribution is not available.

Bina Apparel is a Nashua, NH based fashion design, manufacturing and distribution company. The company’s strong background in design, fabrics, fitting, pattern work and sales is a natural fit for boutique retail shops interested in adding a fresh line to their fall selection. All styles are constructed with CPSIA certified materials and made with care in the U.S.A.

Christopher Kane Returns This Season With His Third Collaboration With Topshop

The landmark collection, which is 39 pieces strong, will be the largest Topshop Boutique collection with a designer to date.

Echoing his AW09 collection Kane’s fusion of manmade embellishments creates a subversive look. Body conscious pieces in fine black gauze form the back bone of the collection and are embellished with mirrors and eyelets. This adornment features on several pieces including 50s inspired briefs which are high waisted and worn as outerwear, slim fitting leggings, a slick long sleeved dress and a high necked body with cap sleeves.

Simple garments are given an element of luxury; a black cotton shirt buttons-up to the collar to expose oversized black gems covering the neckline, a white T-shirt dress features several rows of oversized white opaque gems around the neck, sleeves and hem of the dress. Evening dresses and camisoles have a deep V to accentuate the décolletage and feature oversized jewels around the neckline. A heavy black jersey scarf is adorned with gems along the perimeter updating a winter essential.

For this collection Christopher Kane also debuts a footwear and accessories collection creating pieces which are suitably both modern and romantic. Slouch leather pouch bags are oversized and can be worn with a cross body strap, covered entirely with tiny mirrors, the bag features two large leather tassels which hang from the base of the pouch.

Rachael Proud, senior buyer for Topshop said: “What Christopher Kane has done with this collection is a really new thing for Topshop – in both the size of the range and the production of it. It’s such high spec, such high quality and I really think if you saw it on a catwalk at London Fashion Week it wouldn’t look out of place. It’s got amazing elements of past collections but the new mirrored dresses and opaque gems on other styles just look so amazing.”

French Connection, The High Street Clothing Specialists, Has Delivered Details Of Its Ladieswear Collection For Autumn/Winter 2009

French Connection has injected a casual diffusion range into the main collection, paying special attention to cut, fit, premium materials and quirky little twists.

The casual diffusion line is a collection of everyday pieces. Womens T-shirts take on a new form with oversized proportions adorned with abstract and playful prints. Special attention has been paid to denim with ultra skinny indigo wash to 80s bleached stone wash jeans. Playful outerwear continues with wet look hooded bombers and subtle zebra print drawstring parkas.

The main French Connection collection introduces a range full of diversity that fits together in unexpected ways. Underpinning the range is smart attention to detail, a rarity that you only find with vintage.

Lorna Perrin, director of marketing and PR at French Connection, said: “This season we have concentrated on key trends including the 80s with shoulder pads, deluxe sequin embellishment, exposed zips and fierce tailoring while giving everything a French Connection twist. Leather jackets, pencil skirts and trousers have added a tough luxe edge to the collection.”

Dresses have evolved in both sharp tailored fabrics and draped jersey with totally tropical prints. Necklines are square with shoulders given 80s power woman presence, with skirts staying tulip with front pleating and wrap over detailing. Eastern China vase prints adorn strapless dresses and oversized box shifts. Womens knitwear creates easy-to-wear versatile styles with geometric contrasting panels. Knitwear is u p d a t e d with kitsch and vintage embellishment, overlapping loop details on collars and cuffs and faux fur trims.

The outerwear range is inspired with new silhouettes, f r o m oversized masculine designs in mustard hues, a little red riding hood swing style to grey with solid military hardware. Exaggerated proportions are also evident in collars, bell sleeves and strong empire lines. The classic leather jacket is given a new slim line edge with super soft leather and gold fastenings.

Owl, wolf, tiger and rabbit prints give a playful nod to this year’s bicentenary of Charles Darwin’s birth, appearing cleverly across silks, t-shirts and shirts. The collection is drawn together in an autumnal colour palette of greys, black, mustard and rich red with splashes of tropical brights and high shine metallics.

About French Connection
French Connection was founded in 1972 by Stephen Marks who set out to create well-designed women’s clothes that would appeal to a wide audience.

The Topshop Bicycle Club Hits New York City

To welcome the arrival of summer in the city, Topshop will be celebrating its love of ‘cycle chic’ with free bicycle rentals from its New York store, plus cycle styling tips for the ultimate bike look.

For one week from 20th June, New Yorkers can hire one of 30 Topshop bicycles and free-wheel around the city in style. There will be no charge for the bike hire, and there will even be a bike valet outside the store to take care of customers’ bikes as they shop. Everyone who borrows a bike will receive a fashion map which will take them round a choice of three separate routes via Topshop’s favourite New York haunts. The route will encompass sweet treats at Tea & Sympathy, a visit to DIY- clothing emporium Home Ec from the owners of boutique clothing shop ‘Flirt’, and a trip to Pixie Market to browse the up-and-coming designer offerings. The map will also include hidden gems such as the fabulous nail bar Hello Beautiful in Williamsburg, and luxury Italian apothecary Santa Maria Novella in Soho.

In true Topshop style, people cycling around the city will be invited to take street style snaps of their cycling looks and enter them into a competition hosted by fashion authority site Chictopia.com. The competition will run over a month, and each week there will be five winners – four chosen by Chictopia.com users and one chosen by Topshop. Each winner will receive a set of wheels. In-store, customers will have the opportunity to have their picture taken by legendary nightlife photographer Nicky Digital in front of a street style backdrop. There will be a special Style Advisor team on hand to advise customers on how to look as good as possible on their bike and all the photographs will be uploaded onto Flickr and Topshop’s Facebook page, allowing people to tag themselves and comment on their favourite images.

Topshop will also be hosting an exclusive al fresco screening of classic film ‘Blow Up’ on 26th June at The Yard in Brooklyn. After the film there will be DJs, including Mia Moretti and Erin Lucas, dancing and drinks – plus a bike valet so winners can ride their bikes to the event. The only way to get a much coveted ticket is by finding one of the winning tokens hidden around the store in the days leading up to the screening.

At the film screening, ticket holders will be entitled to one free drink and one box of popcorn to accompany the screening. Additional drinks will incur a charge. NB: Topshop does not endorse cycling whilst under the influence of alcohol.

Debenhams.com Announces New Improvements To Help Shoppers Buy The Right Dress For The Right Occasion

Debenhams.com has announced several changes have been made to their site to help shoppers make an informed decision when choosing from the new extended range.

This year the range includes an exclusive collection of limited edition dresses by designers at Debenhams and trend-led styles in the Cocktail Hour, Siren and Jewelled Brights selection.

Celebrity stylist Mark Heyes is on hand to help the shopper make a final decision on what type of party wear to buy. Several ranges of dresses come specifically recommended by Heyes, who has also written several style advice pages and features using videos to give fashion tips. There is also useful advice to read on the site – such as what suits a person’s body shape – to give shoppers more information on the sort of clothes they would look good wearing.

The collection of black dresses is one of the most popular on the site and there are several new gadgets which help cut out the likelihood of buyer disappointment. The improved zoom function allows users to look at the dresses up close meaning there are no surprises when the material or the stitching don’t quite match up with expectations.

Whilst images show the basic look of a dress, Debenhams.com has also added videos to many of its evening dresses pages. These show a model walking down a runway or giving a twirl to display how the dress reacts to certain kinds of movement.

Another new feature of the website is that it allows customers to leave a review based on their experience. Reviewers can leave a rating out of five for each dress as well as a short description of what they liked or disliked about the dress. This can be a useful tool for shoppers unsure which of the new range of party dresses to go for, as it offers an unbiased customer opinion on the products.

Debenhams is a leading department stores group, and has a strong presence in key product categories including women’s wear, men’s wear, home wares, health and beauty, accessories, lingerie and children’s wear.
