The Storm is here!
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.’
