LEEDS IS WIDELY REGARDED AS THE SHOPPING
CAPITAL OF THE NORTH, AND RIGHTLY SO. THE
CITY BOASTS LARGE BRANCHES OF ALL THE
HIGHSTREET STORES YOU WOULD EXPECT,
ALONGSIDE A THRIVING INDEPENDENT
SECTOR. BOUTIQUES
IN
LEEDS’ HISTORIC ARCADES
AND SHOPPING QUARTERS
GIVE AN AESTHETICALLY
PLEASING PLATFORM TO
LOCAL DESIGNERS AND
VINTAGE PURVEYORS.
With such a strong retail identity, Leeds has
become host to several events on the shopping
calendar, including style competition the Look
of Leeds, the Leeds Loves Shopping Festival,
the Retail Awards and Victoria Quarter’s own
Shopping Afair.
THE UP-AND-COMINGS
Leeds-based fashion designers have proved
that London isn’t the only place to further a
fashion career. In fact, some have been known to
move from the capital in favour of Leeds’ ample
independent boutique ofering.
