I visited the GIVe, (or George the fourth) in Cribbs Causeway recently and was so excited at what I discovered.
The collection, although coming to the end of the season, was still looking fab. There were no clothes on the floor; no huge ‘sale’ tickets everywhere, everything looked expensive, stylish and well looked after. I have to say, I immediately thought I’d never be able to afford anything in here. But how wrong I was! The clothes aren’t cheap, but they’re certainly a lot less than I’d expected them to be.
It’s not just the price or the quality of the clothing that’s won me over, the most exciting thing I discovered was the in-store tailor. They’ll do alterations at a very reasonable price and best of all, they’ll customise things for you too. I looked at the rail crammed full of garments that had been customised, and instantly coveted a structured jacket with sequins hand-sewn on the collar. There was a skirt which had been shortened and almost totally re-styled, and a black studded top, modelling a brand new set of shoulder pads. Genius!
When, the 4th of Feb comes round, I’ll be straight to straight up to Cribbs to purchase my very own version of the navy jumpsuit, safe in the knowledge that, thanks to some clever customisation, it’ll look different from anyone else’s!
