London has just about everything to offer when it comes to finding your perfect look in the high street shops; you needn’t break the bank to do so either. Whether you’re looking to while away the hours in the fashionable shopping areas of Carnaby Street, the high street brands of Oxford Street or the upmarket boutiques of Bond Street, London will have fashion, clothes and accessories for everyone, male or female, adult or child, and for every budget too. You would be surprised what you can find for a good price in the heart of Oxford Street!
On Oxford Street, all the usual high street stores can be found, but this is London and so these are not just ordinary high street stores, these are the companies ‘flagship’ stores. All are much bigger, brighter, more modern and more fashionable and with the latest and most up to date stock high street shopping does not get any bigger or better than this. Names like Topshop, Burberry, H&M, Zara and River Island, along with many more much-love brands, adorn their large stores with their latest ranges; but this does not mean that bargains cannot be found at sale time if you look hard enough.
Of course, if you have the available budget, a wander along Bond Street will take you past some of the most well-known and internationally recognisable London fashion brands. Alexander McQueen’s flagship store sits on Bond Street, now run by Sarah Burton following his death, whilst you don’t just have to visit Bond Street to find the height of men’s fashion as the stores of Sir Paul Smith are dotted all around the city of London. If you need something a little bit special, the legendary tailors of Saville Row will be only too happy to oblige, creating perfectly cut suits.
Fashion and shopping in London are two of its main attractions and international selling points. With the London College of Fashion being not only the best in the UK but one of the best in the world, and with the London Fashion Show putting London in the same breath as Paris, Milan and New York, London fashion is well and truly some of the best in the world. With the Great British public enjoying the shopping and fashion opportunities that London has to offer, their discerning demands are unlikely to change this situation for the worse.
