This Thursday (February 6) Fashion North had the pleasure of interviewing the great David Emanuel at the grand re-opening of the Bonmarché store in Sunderland.
David was there to meet his beloved customers and also to unveil his latest collection.
The Sunderland store had been closed for a refurbishment and was re-opened by David himself along with his new line, Diffusion. He was also on hand to offer style advice to customers and sign autographs.
Inspired by ‘real women,’ the collection seemed to be very popular with ladies in the North East as queues stretched outside to meet the wonderful Mr Emanuel. When we arrived there had already been 250 people pass through the shop’s doors!
He said: “Where do I get my inspiration from? The answer is quite simple to me. It’s my Bonmarché customer.
“It’s easy to design for a high end market, the challenge is creating affordable clothing and I do love a challenge.”
The beautiful collection predominately features wrap dresses, waterfall cardigans and jersey skirts in different hues of blue with polka dot and floral prints.
David is an extraordinary figure in the British fashion industry and it was an honour to have met him. We really couldn’t contain our excitement!
Watch this space for an exclusive interview with David coming soon to Fashion North.
