Get Fashion Forward, Locally

We search out a few of the hottest international trends in fashion hitting BVI stores right now. By Erin Paviour-Smith

Now more than ever it’s important to shop local and small. Shipping costs and package waiting times are inconvenient, plus it’s more fun to touch, feel and try on clothes in a store. Not to mention that by shopping local, we’re supporting and investing in our local community, and putting our dollars towards independent small businesses to keep our economy flowing.
