High street could be forced to slash clothing prices before Christmas

The Next boss said: “This is a natural consequence of the fact the company
issues profit guidance. It means that every so often we are going to get it
wrong.”

Alistair Davies, analyst at Investec, said the comments from Next are “not
encouraging” for the fashion industry and that slow trading could lead to
widespread discounting before Christmas.

He said: “Lower than anticipated full-price sales mean growth forecasts for
peak are lowered, and we suspect this represents a risk across the industry
of a highly promotional run-in to peak.”

The British Retail Consortium has already warned that UK retail sales fell by
0.8pc in September compared to the same month last year, the biggest decline
since 2008. Retail analysts expect a similar fall for October when the
figures are released next week.

Retailers claim the warm weather is dampening demand for their new autumn and
winter collections, which include coats and jumpers.

Lord Wolfson said the slowdown highlighted the changing habits of shoppers.

“It is further evidence that no one buys their winter wardrobe until they need
it,” he said. “Shoppers are now prompted to do their shopping rather than
being prepared for it.”

The weather is likely to drag down sales for Marks Spencer, which posts its
interim results next week and is under pressure to deliver an improved
performance in clothing.

Shares in MS fell by 2.90, or 1pc, to 403.70p following Next’s trading
update. Shares in Next fell 35p, or 0.5pc, to £64.

The City was expecting the profit warning from Next after the company warned
in September that it would be forced to lower its guidance for the year if
the mild weather continued into October.

In its statement on Wednesday, Next said that its sales in the last three
months grew by 5.4pc, compared to initial expectations of 10pc growth.

This has led to the company cutting its forecast for annual pre-tax profits by
3pc to between £750m and £790m, compared to between £775m and £815m
previously.

However, although Next has cut its forecasts, the lower guidance still means
the company is expecting profits to grow this year by between 8pc and 14pc.

Seoul fashion blends luxury, high street


When Steve J Yoni P’s Seoul Fashion Week show on Oct. 20 surprised many in the star-studded front row and packed auditorium with its combination of romantic colors and playful graffiti prints.

“I think Steve J Yoni P fits the mood of what is going on in Korea, between high street fashion and luxury,” said Danny Stienen, a buyer from Antonioli in Milan.

It is difficult to be both sexy and feminine at the same time, added Stienen.

“But I think this year’s womenswear collections, along with Steve J Yoni P’s, are able to present both characteristics and define luxury street style,” he said.

Steve J Yoni P (Seoul Fashion Week)
Seoul Fashion Week, in its 15th year, ended its six days of spring-summer glamor Wednesday at Seoul’s newest venue, Dongdaemun Design Plaza. The week included 85 fashion shows, and was attended by more than 60,000 fashionistas, models and buyers, as well as K-pop fans hoping to catch a glimpse of their idols.

SFW rolls out the carpet a little later than other major international fashion weeks, such as New York, Milan, Paris and London, so buyers often arrive with limited budgets. But international buyers said they were planning to spend more money in Seoul than in previous years after watching the shows.

“K-pop and Hallyu play a big part for people in Hong Kong and Asia to like K-fashion,” said Tony Lee, merchandising manager of Hong Kong’s Harvey Nichols.

“Korean clothes comprise 6 percent of the total purchase we make and it is likely to increase,” said Lee, who is on his seventh visit to SFW.

“There are unique patterns that don’t exist in Europe,” said Steinen. “I think that these kinds of special styles and logos can break into the European fashion market.”

In response to the worldwide “Normcore” trend for unpretentious and inconspicuous clothing, Seoul’s womenswear is wearable and practical, but adds layers of romantic and funky style for a more luxurious look.

Designer Park Seung-gun of pushButton, known for his whimsical and creative designs, presented a lovely collection inspired by a photograph of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, wearing a simple white shirt and wide denim pants with a cigarette in one hand.

The collection highlighted simple and practical style, while adding delicate spring color palette of baby pink, sky blue and saddle brown for a ladylike touch. Soft textures, including silk taffeta, emphasized the collection’s funky romantic style, with playful, flared skirts and cocoon silhouette outerwear.

Steve J Yoni P’s collection lived up to the hype, set on the theme “Modernistic Renaissance,” through prints based on ancient plants and statues used in the collection’s signature items, layered wrapped-skirts and skirt-inspired belts.

Soft romantic colors like baby pink, lemon yellow and royal blue blended well with the overall theme of the collection, painting a widely romantic and fun spring collection.

Low Classic, under the helm of designer Lee Myung-sin, continued its witty and classic design displaying a practical line, in tune with the collection’s theme “American Dream.” The models sauntered down the runway with short orange hair in unison, reminding of rusty-haired Mila Jovovich in the 1997 film “The Fifth Element.” 

Low Classic (Seoul Fashion Week)
Miss Gee Collection (Seoul Fashion Week)
The collection added a funky, bright touch to its knitwear and comfortable easygoing silhouettes.

Designer Gee Choon-hee’s Miss Gee Collection marked the last day of fashion week. The collection was dominated by toned down achromatic colors with flashes of blue and yellow for emphasis, balanced with minimal clean-cut lines and simple silhouettes.

“This year’s Seoul collection was impressive,” Tony Lee added after the show. “A mix of fun and avant garde style can become a niche market for Korean designers.”

Going from the Rovers Return to high fashion modelling might not seem like the easiest of transitions.

But Kate Ford made it look like light work with a stunning photo shoot that showed her looking barely recognisable in fairytale gowns and ethereal waist length locks.

The brunette beauty, who plays Tracy Barlow in Coronation Street, gets a high fashion makeover for a one-off shoot set in the stunning Cheshire countryside.

Kate, who is an ardent horse riding fan, slips into a Maid Marian-esque dress to ride barefoot on a rare, white Spanish horse.

The elegant red gown – cut away to reveal her ample cleavage – shows off the 36-year-old’s enviable physique as she smoulders on the back of the beautiful stallion.

Lengthening her brunette tresses with honeyed tips, Kate’s camera-ready prowess is accentuated with a soft pink hue and dark eye make-up.

A great departure from her casual cobbles wardrobe, the actress also cuts an elegant figure in a high-neck golden gown.

She poses against a sunlit back drop in a cream tulle skirt – something her character Tracy certainly wouldn’t have picked out. 

The shoot was styled by Lorraine Mcculloch while hairdresser Alex Foden and Collette Casey helped glam up the actress for the shots.

Art Director Laura Graham teamed up with photographer Rosie Hardy for the stunning shot which took place at Penfold Stables in Great Warford, Cheshire.

A nominee for Best Serial Drama Performance at the 2015 National Television Awards, Kate is currently embroiled in one of her most intense soap storylines in her time as Tracy.

The Rovers Return regular is getting set to marry murderer Rob Donovan (played by Marc Bayliss), though it’s not expected to be a fairytale ending for Tracy.

Kate has been throwing herself into her acting after her real-life marriage to Jon Connerty hit turmoil.

Speaking to The Sun this week, she said: ‘When Jon and I first parted it was quite hard to put my personal life aside,

‘But then it became therapeutic to concentrate on my job. People call it “Doctor Theatre” – when you’re acting, you can’t worry about things.

‘We really tried hard to make it work. But it came to the point when we knew we had to get a divorce.’
