Wan she’ll re­mem­ber as Rosie meets fash­ion guru

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News -

A Muir­head fash­ion­ista show­cased her unique style when she teamed up with celebrity fash­ion guru Gok Wan.

Rosie Martin, owner of in­de­pen­dent Muir­head bou­tique Nelly McCabe, dis­played items from her shop at the TV star’s re­cent cat­walk show in Glasgow.

And Rosie, who named her busi­ness af­ter her late grand­mother, was se­lected by Gok af­ter he saw her bou­tique’s de­signs on so­cial me­dia.

She told the Ad­ver­tiser: “It was an ab­so­lutely amaz­ing day.

“He was a lovely man, very per­son­able, charis­matic and so pro­fes­sional.

“We had such a great time and even though we are just brand new, we got to close the show. It was quite sur­real.

“I didn’t know what to ex­pect, then Gok an­nounced our col­lec­tion and the mod­els took to the stage in a range of our dif­fer­ent looks.”

Rosie’s labour of love has trans­formed the for­mer Air­drie Sav­ings Bank build­ing on Cum­ber­nauld Road into a fash­ion mecca, of­fer­ing her cus­tomers a unique and per­sonal shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence.

She ex­plained:“It’s all about af­ford­abil­ity and qual­ity.

“We are very ac­ces­si­ble and quite unique in our de­signs and that’s why Gok is one of our big­gest cham­pi­ons. It’s not throw away fash­ion. Our ethos is to pro­mote qual­ity Bri­tish de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing.

“For us the ex­po­sure has been amaz­ing, but I don’t want to iso­late peo­ple. The feed­back I have had from peo­ple in the shop is that our clothes are so rea­son­ably priced.

“I have al­ways loved fash­ion, but it can be quite a tricky ex­pe­ri­ence. You can ei­ther en­joy shop­ping or hate it. I want to give peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to try our clothes on with­out feel­ing in­tim­i­dated.”
