BHS Spring/Summer 2014

Shot_02_163 copy

For some of us, BHS is likely to conjure childhood memories of shopping trips with mom. However, in recent years, BHS has been given a boost, restoring its status as a family favorite. Whilst great value products are at the centre of everything they do, a dash of contemporary style adds to the customer experience. 2014 is going to be an exciting year for BHS, with new ventures yet to come.

The new collection is clean and simple. The texture and fabric, color and print, are all beautifully explored this season in womenswear to create a collection of contemporary femininity that is sophisticated and wearable. Prints from a far field and closer to home offer something for the bold and something for the traditional. Ikat, zebra, and tribal in monochrome juxtapose digital floral prints in watercolour blue on white palettes.

Visiting Al Fatina Group Boutiques


A few days ago I received an invitation by Al Fatina group to check out their latest collections at their Zahra Complex boutiques. I was specifically surprised with the number of designers they carry at their stores and the variety of designs they have to suite everybody’s liking! Unlike many evening wear boutiques, the collection at both their Casa Moda and Soiree stores had so much color and some chunky statement accessories to go with. Their third store, Cosmo, was more on the casual and ready to wear side and I also found some eye-catching items. And the good news is, they carry plus sizes at all their boutiques, which I know is very hard to find! If you’re planning an upcoming occasion, do pass them by for limitless options!














Al Fatina Group have 3 boutiques (Casa Moda, Soiree, & Cosmo) in Zahra complex, and 1 boutique (Al Fatina) at The Avenues, Second Avenue. Follow them on instagram @alfatina_group to stay updated.
