Style: Christmas comes early
Monday 22 December 1997
If you are one of those Christmas Scrooges who wishes you could postpone Christmas for a week so you could do all your shopping in the January sales, your dreams have come true this year.
Every year the sales seem to start a little earlier. Liberty has reduced most of its fashion merchandise by 25 per cent. "It's an early Christmas present," said a Liberty spokesman. People are panicking for that last- minute dress and they all know that by Saturday, prices will be slashed. They might as well have that little extra incentive to buy now.
Among the bargains worth searching out at the Regent Street store is a rose embroidered dress by the designer of 1997, Alexander McQueen. Other sales that will be starting fashionably early include ...
