Debenhams News Update: New Birthday Collection Launch
Debenhams News Update: new birthday collection launch. As they reach the two hundredth birthday of the store Debenhams have launched their new collection.
Debenhams is a very well known name on the high streets of Britain and a very popular department store, offering as it does a range of goods that will suit any pocket. But it is the luxury end of the market that it is focusing on as it launches its new collection in honour of two hundred years trading.
The store began trading on Christmas Day back in 1813 when the store owner William Debenham paid out for a share in a drapers store that was on Wigmore Street in London. The store was eventually renamed Clarke and Debenham. The store has expanded beyond all recognition in the years since then and made quite a splash at the celebration of their 200th year. The party that was held to celebrate the milestone included guest act and popular boy band McFly. It was a glittering affair with no expense spared as the staff and their guests and associates paid tribute to the store and its longevity.
Debenhams News Updates
There was a lot of excitement around the launch of the new Limited Edition Collection that includes iconic pieces from designers like Julien Macdonald in the shape of a gold sequined dress. Julien Macdonald is a Welsh designer and has recently shown his spring collection to great applause at London Fashion Week. Betty Jackson was another contributor to the exclusive collection with a coat from the Lancashire born designer. There was also an exciting range of products for the home that came from such creative geniuses as Matthew Williamson.
The entire collection spans the design areas from fashion to home ware and comprises fur coats, four evening gowns and a series of decorative plates and handbags and purses. The designers who have contributed to the extra special range for the important anniversary of the store are all from the Designers at Debenhams initiative and are part of a group that have been producing innovative and on trend clothing for Debenhams for the last twenty years.
Although it is a name that we all know and are used to seeing on the high street, I am sure that not many people would be aware of just how long the illustrious Debenhams has been trading. It is certainly a success story and something to engender British pride.
