Fashionistas with an affinity for British brands now have a chance to fill out their closets, what with the British Embassy launching the Great British Shopping Contest.

“British creativity is the source of many global trends, be it casual or work wear, baby clothes or the attire of stylish senior citizens… If you can’t fly to Britain, don’t worry, Great Britain is coming to you,” British Ambassador Asif Ahmad said during the promo launch in Robinson’s Magnolia last September.

The success of British fashion brands in the Philippines was made known during Manila’s first ever British Fashion Month in February, wherein various personalities remarked on the greater consumption of British brands by Filipinos.

Ahmad said the embracing of UK fashions was “striking”, and said the spending culture in the Philippines was ideal for big fashion brands.
