The retailer boasts over 60 stores across the country with thousands of luxury brands across the board. We asked Ross to select his key pieces for Spring 2017. He explained;

The House of Fraser SS17 collection embraces everything that is visual with it’s offering of loud prints such as paisleys, tropical and geometric shapes. Another key trend that can be seen throughout the collection is the focus on active wear, inspired by 90’s sportswear, which has been blended with everyday clothing to created the look of ‘sports luxe’.”
