While trends may come and go, the timeless silhouettes at Reiss convey longevity and classic sophistication. Think: soft, feminine cuts and fabrics that drape the body rather than wear it.

Quite literally fit for royalty, this place is a favourite of Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Reiss is a brand steeped in over four decades of couture and provides its clients with unwavering design and quality.

Fashion can really take a toll on the environment and i’s crucial that we begin questioning the impact fast fashion has on our environment. Central St. Martins graduate Sarah Fung went on a mission to help when she founded HULA: an online marketplace for pre-owned designer womenswear. HULA is an incredible business model; a virtual retailer that promotes sustainable fashion through re-selling couture at almost 95% markdown, with 5% of profit going to charity. The (re)cyclical nature makes sure that pieces in prime condition are given a second shelf life, promoting less fashion waste. Throw in some of the most covetable names in fashion (from Gucci to Alexander McQueen and Giambattista Valli to Chloé to name very few) and an array of bags, shoes, jewellery and of course, evening wear, and you’ve got us hooked.
