Vogue Shops - Britain's Best Boutiques 2010 -

Labels: founded by husband-and-wife team Samir Ceric and Zoe Knight, designers are invited to rent a shop space within the boutique, thus enabling them to pocket 90 per cent of the retail value of their clothes. Discover Gisele Ganne, Felder Felder, Olanic, Universal Clothing and Jake Phipps.
Best Buy: jersey separates by U, a unisex label by former Gap designer Rafal Antos.
Dream Ticket: re-mortgage the house for Tomasz Donocik’s phoenix ring.
USP: the unique “setting up shop” concept. Every designer on W&B’s website will receive their own gallery, in line with the look and feel of the shop. Plans are underway to open in Manchester, with more shops to follow in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Moscow and Beijing. The window display is curated by some of the best artists and designers in town
