Fun product but basic and unfinished shopfit is in need of some TLC.
Clothing multiple - Intu Trafford Centre Manchester, first floor
Glamorous works a laid-back summer vibe, from the chill-out Ibiza tunes to the cropped tops, denim shorts and playsuits begging to be worn to the beach. The collection is affordable for its target young consumer, and places a big focus on separates. All the items from the window – including a cute cropped Ikat pattern top (£21) and matching shorts (£21) – are handily positioned front of store. Among the other highlights are a white peasant dress with fringe detail (£26) and floral embroidered jeans (£39) that would not look out of place at Californian music festival Coachella. At the back of the store a selection of wearable everyday product includes wide leg culottes (£27) and a white mesh bomber jacket (£36).
The basic plywood shopfit definitely lacks glamour, especially the changing rooms which feel unfinished. The curtain does not close properly, and there is no seat and insufficient pegs on which to hang my garments. The staff chat behind a large cash desk, failing to venture out on to the shop floor to offer assistance.
