FASHION designer Giles Deacon has produced another fabulous Gold collection exclusively for New Look.
His A/W collection is modern British glamour at its finest. Giles’ signature shift dresses are back! This time on gorgeous metallic brocades, both slimline and skirted. The glamour continues with oversize fringing on dresses in black and bright orange. Simple jersey dresses are updated with artistic embellishment. A fabulous blurred floral print satin shift adds a finishing touch to the collection.
Gold by Giles also features amazing accessories, including metallic bow kitten heels and a brocade metallic clutch to finish the look. Prices start from £16.99.
The collection is due to launch into stores on August 23 and will be available in New Look stores nationally as well as www.newlook.com
:: IF you are after a head-turning occasion dress then head to Dalton Park which has a great selection of party frocks at up to 50% off high street prices.
Bargains include Lipsy dresses, available at the Next clearance store, from £25.
I love this striking blue Joseph dress. It normally retails at £250 but is available at the Jospeh store at Dalton Park for £75.

:: LINGERIE giant La Senza, which has stores in Eldon Square and the Metrocentre has launched a new cleavage-boosting bra.
The Triple Gel Bra promises an extreme boost that looks natural and is aimed at women wanting a curvier silhouette. La Senza says the push-up bra instantly transforms busts adding up to two full cup sizes to create maximum cleavage and fullness whilst maintaining a natural look.
Lorraine Cuthbert, Head Lingerie Buyer at La Senza, says: “We’re really excited by the launch of this bra, our research has shown women don’t want to look like they’ve had a boob job, but instead they desire a bust that looks like they were blessed with voluptuous figure. We think we’re on to something following the huge popularity we experienced with our Double Gel Bra which has remained in our Top Ten Best Sellers’ list since it launched two years ago, so we’re predicting to sell out of the Triple Gel Bra in the first week at many of our stores.”
The bra is available in sizes 32A-38DD, with a matching brief and thong in sizes 8-18. Bra £25, brief and thong £6 and available in black, white, strawberry, purple and zebra print. To find your nearest store or to browse La Senza’s latest collection and buy online, go to www.lasenza.co.uk
:: IT’s only summer but all thoughts will be turning to autumn soon when the new collections start hitting stores next month.
Next has one of the best autumn/winter ranges I have seen so far.
Here’s a teaser from the new collection. The trilby is £16, cable knit jumper is £35, the wool check shorts are £25 and the tweed blazer is £50.
I’ll be doing a more in-depth look on the key trends for next season in the next few weeks.
