A frenzy of fashionistas descended on Edinburgh’s Stockbridge as Mary Queen of Shops threw open the doors of Mary’s Living and Giving charity shop.
Bargain-hunting style-seekers queued around the block to catch sight of retail guru Mary Portas and snap up designer labels donated by celebrities such as Jamie Oliver, Lauren Lavern and Peaches Geldof. Portas, who is an Ambassador for Save the Children, designed the shop which will be run by the charity.
The store will be topped up with donations from Grazia magazine. I was in the male minority, recording the event for Grazia. Look out for coverage in the 14 December issue.
