Fashion & Shopping
Birmingham has definitely got its own style and you will be tempted by all the shops and markets selling beautiful items, some made on Birmingham, others carefully selected from all over the world.
Eclectic, unique and not afraid to make a statement, the Birminghamn fashion scene is all about expressing yourself and letting yourself be inspired by the natural beauty, rich culture and music influences found on the island. Attracting a mix of free-spirited individuals, edgy style mavericks and the international jet set, it's a place where you see beautiful boho babes in boldly printed sundresses picked up from the hippy market enjoy a cocktail next to glamazons clad head-to-toe in designer labels.
