By Jennifer Weatherhead I spent some time in England a couple of weeks ago and one of the best spots I visited had to be
Manchester. I loved the edge the city has and the rough and tumble vibe you get from the industrial northern hot spot. That edginess can be seen throughout Manchester — from the incredible music scene (you must take one night to hit up the local bars and pubs and check out the bands — it’s
the breeding ground for amazing Brit acts), to the gritty football fans (pick a side, Man United or Man City), to the in-your-face fashion. Manchurians are not afraid to show their personality with vintage finds, flashy designer duds (prints, leathers and bling rule the designer racks at
Harvey Nichols), High Street fashions and notice-me makeup (the makeup pros at Harvey Nichols insisted that Shu Uemura’s silver metallic falsies are
totally suitable for the office — I think I’ll pass).
