During the launch in Robinson’s Magnolia, British Ambassador Asif Ahmad invited everyone to join the GREAT British Shopping Contest:
The grand prize winner will get to travel to one of the greatest fashion destinations of the world. From the upmarket shops in Knightsbridge, to the stores in the city of Manchester, Britain presents a GREAT shopping experience you won’t ever forget. Stella McCartney, John Galliano and many others have become the pace setters in the world of fashion. Their inspiration comes from people watching in Britain and drawing creativity from their lifestyles.
British creativity is the source of many global trends, be it casual or work wear, baby clothes or the attire of stylish senior citizens. Rural inspired clothes have become urban chic and the practical need to beat the winter or rainy days are turned into fashion statements.
If you can’t fly to Britain, don’t worry, Great Britain is coming to you. There are prizes to go for so that you can keep up with the latest trends in participating British stores in the Philippines with shopping vouchers. British brands and stores bring you the best of British fashion to a mall where you shop.
The participating stores and brands are: Berghaus, Burton, Clarks, Debenhams, Essensuals, French Sole, Lee Cooper, Marks & Spencer, MINI Lifestyle Products, Mitre, ROOS, Speedo, Toni & Guy, Warehouse and British brands housed in Toby’s – Berghaus, Mitre and ROOS.
Media partners of the GREAT British Shopping Contest are: ANC, The Philippine Star, Philippine Daily Inquirer, 96.3 Easy Rock, Magic 89.9, 103.5 KLite, Jam 88.3, Wave 89.1 and 99.5 Play FM.
