The Storm is here!

Lancashire Life - - FASHION NEWS -

Sis­ters Danielle and Clau­dia Fog­a­rty have re­cently re­vealed their new ven­ture Storm Fash­ion, bring­ing se­lect de­signer brands to the Rib­ble Valley

Af­ter a lively launch event Storm Fash­ion is now of­fi­cially open. At the launch event, the Pros­ecco flowed and the shop was bustling with vis­i­tors ea­ger for an ex­clu­sive pre­view of Storm’s col­lec­tions. Among the guests was dad and King of The Jun­gle, Carl Fog­a­rty as well Danielle’s boyfriend Ross Wor­swick, owner of The Cou­ture Club. Later the cel­e­bra­tions con­tin­ued across the road at Car­l­i­tos Cock­tail Bar where the party en­joyed their very own Storm cock­tails.

The idea of start­ing their own fash­ion bou­tique has al­ways been some­thing the sis­ters have talked about with mum Michaela for a few years. ‘It was one day when we vis­ited our favourite shop in Wilm­slow, Black White Denim we came away and said let’s just do it!’ said Clau­dia. With the help of Jo the owner of Black White Denim the plan­ning process started, ‘We wouldn’t have been able to do it with­out her,’ added Danielle. ‘We then worked hard to find the right lo­ca­tion and

de­sign­ers and it even­tu­ally all started com­ing to­gether.’

Hav­ing pre­vi­ously run a lo­cal drama school, Clau­dia has gained the knowl­edge and ideas to run a suc­cess­ful busi­ness. Fash­ion blog­ger, Danielle has an eye for fash­ion which makes the sis­ters the per­fect team.

‘We are re­ally en­joy­ing work­ing to­gether,’ said Danielle it feels like it has taken us for­ever to get to this point and its been hard work but we are lov­ing ev­ery minute of it.’

Storm stocks a wide range of clothes for ev­ery occasion, from a girls’ night out to a girls’ night in. De­sign­ers in­clude Anine

Bing, Wild­fox, Fin­ders Keep­ers, Keep­sake, LNA, Amer­i­can Vin­tage, Boy­ish, SET, The Cou­ture Club, J Brand and Bella Freud. With sizes and trends to ap­peal to all ages, Storm has some­thing for ev­ery­one.

With ul­tra-mod­ern white and gold dé­cor, a large chang­ing room, and lounge area, Storm of­fers a re­laxed set­ting for a per­sonal shopping ex­pe­ri­ence.

‘We want cus­tomers to get the very best ser­vice and en­joy their visit, just let us know what you are look­ing for and let us do the rest,’ said Danielle. ‘We want to find the out­fit which will make you look and feel fan­tas­tic!’

And Clau­dia added: ‘Other busi­nesses in Clitheroe have been ex­tremely wel­com­ing, our par­ents have been in­cred­i­bly sup­port­ive and Ross hav­ing be­ing in the in­dus­try has helped us mas­sively, we are grate­ful for ev­ery­one’s help and we are ex­cited to see what the fu­ture will bring.’
