When you mention the word designer you automatically think expensive! but that is no longer the case.
Many of the top designers are now available in you favourite local supermarket, and many new designers will feature in the new High Street collections.
Don't forget the internet! The WWW has opened up the World, and that means the world of designers. many new designers are now not only designing fashion clothing, but shoes and jewellery and these are also becoming more and more affordable.
