Knightsbridge is one of London’s finest shopping areas. Between Brompton Road, Sloane Street and Knightsbridge you’ll find British and International fashion houses and below are just a few of the designers to check-out:
Shoe designers: Jimmy Choo & Manolo Blahnik French Fashion: Dior, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, International: Joseph, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Gucci, Hermes, Prada, Saint Laurent, Boss and many more Scotch Corner is home to Burberry offering high-quality Scottish goods including a Tartan room, men’s and women’s fashions
And, Harrods, the world’s most famous department store, began in the middle of the 19th century when Henry Charles Harrod started a grocery shop on Brompton Street. A shift in focus to selling high quality goods rather than competing for low prices resulted in expansion and the shop becoming a tremendous success.
Today, features include 60 fashion departments, a celebrated Food Hall and at night the store is lit by 11,000 lights. Although Harrods is open to all, there is still a strict dress code and customers have been turned away for wearing too little!
Harvey Nichols: began life in 1813 as a linen shop on the corner of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street and progressed in the 1880’s to selling luxury goods. Today, it’s a favourite stomping ground for fashion and food lovers with eight floors offering superior home wares, fashion and beauty, and the entire fifth floor dedicated to food and restaurants.
