Wan she’ll remember as Rosie meets fashion guru
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.”
