From furs to sequins, Barbours to Harringtons; Shop owner Gavin O'Brien and his wife Mari sure know the tastes of Glasgow's in crowd inside out. The shop enjoys the luxury of being a stone's throw away from Kelvinbridge Underground with a window display to ensure it stands out from the rest.

Dressed head to toe in 'melon inspired clobber, co-owner Gavin tells us: "There was a space in the West End for us. We started looking for a place about four months ago, and we really have opened in a fantastic location. We have some very good sources for filling the shop with our vintage offerings."
