Online Shopping Tip
Shoppers from outside the UK can snap up bargains at the moment due to the low value of the Pound compared to the Euro and the Dollar. Many of the online stores featured offer worldwide delivery and, if you live outside the EU, a VAT refund (VAT is effectively a UK sales tax and the rate is currently at 20%).

Lulu Guinness

Lulu Guinness shoesLulu Guinness logoLulu Guinness is a British fashion designer, known for her quirky and eccentric handbags. Unlike the majority of fashion designers, she never attended fashion college or design school, although she did complete a foundation course in art. Lulu Guinness's designs are humourous and witty, incorporating cheeky slogans and fun designs, such as a purse in the shape of a pair of lips.

Lulu Guinness launched her company in 1989. Whilst originally she just designed bags, in 2001 she launched her very own range of designer shoes in conjunction with Lambert Howarth, a British shoe manufacturer. Many experts refer to Lulu's designs as "tomorrow's treasures" and they are already on display in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Many celebrities and TV personalities carry Lulu's designs including Keira Knightly, Helena Bonham Carter, Jemima Khan, Debra Messing, Rachel Weisz, Scarlett Johannson and Dita Von Teese.
