We heard exciting news yesterday of the Vivienne Westwood store due to open in St Davids Shopping Centre in Cardiff this autumn. In our eyes Cardiff has truly arrived as a fashion destination with Ms Westwood coming to town!
We know Urban Outfitters Cardiff has stocked a small range of Anglomania for a while, along with a range in Flannels also, but to have a dedicated Westwood store in the Welsh capital is something else! We’ve long been admirers of Vivienne Westwood and what she has achieved on a global scale for the profile of British fashion.
We love the unique cut of her jackets, suits and dresses, the humour she incorporates along with an incredible attention to detail. We also love the integrity and passionate views of the woman herself, and also of course her inimitable style! You might have guessed we’re ever so slightly in awe of the woman and her brand!
The new store will measure 2,600 square feet and will draw inspiration from the original Vivienne Westwood flagship store in Conduit Street London. It will feature large theatrical windows and a stage adorned with classic Westwood mannequins, fawn hoofed rails and Vivienne’s iconic pink neon signature. The store with stock a full range of Gold, Red, and MAN Label, Anglomania and Anglomania + Lee Jeans, Red Carpet evening wear dresses and all accessories including shoes and bags.
The store will open with an exclusive VIP launch party in the Autumn, and the celebrations will continue with an exclusive fashion show in October.
We’ll keep you posted on dates as soon as we hear of more news…so watch this space!
