Phillip Stoner Now Open At Trinity Leeds

On March 21st Phillip Stoner opened the doors of its newest boutique store at Trinity Leeds. The shopping centre’s opening ceremony was a huge success with thousands of people flocking to the city to witness the unveiling of the world’s largest designer dress, curated by British fashion designer, Henry Holland. Measuring the equivalent of the height of three double decker buses, the silk dress, embellished with thousands of Swarovski crystals, was worn by aerial acrobat and former Cirque Du Soleil principle artist, Colette Morrow.
