Chosen by Chantelle Wilkinson, UK agent for contemporary womenswear brand Marc Cain.
I don’t live in London, so I enjoy exploring some other edgy options outside the capital. Michelle B in Barrowford, Lancashire, is one of my favourite shops to visit.
You can find a nice mixture of brands in Michelle B. As well as womenswear, it also sells highquality beauty brands and scented candles, which makes the off er
stand out from that of other
I love the whole shopping experience. The owner, Michelle Birkins, and her assistant are excellent. Michelle is totally clued up about her business, and the pair
of them are very proactive to customers’ needs. They know the products very well, and their advice on what suits their customers is always reliable.
The two-storey shop is also very well lit, so I can see what I’m actually going to buy. I really hate it if shops are dimly lit. Shopping is no fun when you don’t know what the colour will look like when you get outside into the daylight.
