A few weeks ago, here at Squiggles comms, we received an invitation to attend RENATE’s SS15 fashion show taking place in Morgan Arcade. Being an excitable bunch, we jumped at the chance to have a look at Renate’s offerings for the Spring/Summer ahead especially since their debut was long awaited after their opening at the end of last year. As you can see from the picture below, we certainly weren’t disappointed with the location:


RENATE boasts an expanding selection of clothing, footwear and accessories from Scandinavian, Australian and British brands yet has a warm, friendly atmosphere which makes it one of the undoubted independent gems of the Cardiff shopping scene. Similarly, their innovative offerings combined with a timeless, casual elegance result in the perfect clothes to take you from office to eveningwear as well as any summer wedding or event (Polo, anyone?).


As if we weren’t completely smitten with the beautiful location and clothing, we were offered cupcakes (can any fashion event ever be complete without?) washed down with glasses of pimms which were the perfect addition to the summer theme of the occasion.
