I'm a few weeks late to the party to be honest, but there are a few very exciting changes occurring over at Joseph. In womenswear, the latest is that the brand will be showing at London Fashion Week next month. Topshop Unique is now a firm favourite on the calendar, and Whistles too has joined the fashion foray, so... ...READ MORE
