I disagree. I find the designer labels cheaper here than in the UK. I'm back there again in May so I'll have another look. I guess here on the west coast we don't buy for function, as you put it.... normally our weather is less severe than the rest of Canada, so the heavy winter clothing is not normally needed.

I could barely get stuff in a carry-on for a weekend away to Edmonton!
I could never do a carry-on bag for more than a day away

I wont argue with you other than to say Ted and Paul are definitely more in Calgary than Manc.

She is 15. She is probably going to want to buy clothes at Monsoon or Next -- she isn't old enough to aspire to D&G and its ilk.

I would say if she's 15 it's more likely to be Top Shop, New Look, Primark dare I say it?

I always thought Monsoon was quite expensive myself...
