Here in good old Blighty, past the rolling green hills, through the meadows, the horses and the cattle one can find many a modern day bazaar with their imposing square footage all boasting identical and predictable collections that simply leaves us looking like mirror images of are comrades in the U.S. of A and the continent. I ask, is the lure of immersing oneself in the brashness and in many cases the down right gaudiness of the major fashion collections too much of a pull for many of the buyers? Does interest ultimately dissolve on the part of the buyer when the Davids of the fashion world say No! to being a part of Goliath's (This is in no way a reference to Anna Wintour and her minions...Pfff!) marionettes. My point is (I have a tendency to waffle) their are a vast number of talented individuals that simply don't have the financial backing to bombard us with its offerings and so are overlooked by the powers that be and we the public, in turn become ignorant to their very existence. All is not lost...I introduce B Store, a concept store that says No! to branded luxury and instead looks to entice those whom wish to indulge in innovative labels and budding graduates (My very British stiff upper lip was lost for a moment - Ha).
