Moon Design: Clothing: Moon is no longer operating – this page is archived
Annie Good – sleek, chic and very stylish Westender is a perfect advertisement for her designer clothes shop Moon. The shop is a haven of delight and Annie has worked hard to achieve success and put Moon firmly in the frame of the fashion world. Annie has made it her business to know the fashion business, combining flair, care and confidence to provide customers at Moon with a personal service and wonderful selection of designer clothes.
At Moon you will find many well known and established designers such as: Betty Jackson, Diane von Furstenber, Sonia Speciale, Missoni Sport, Poleci, Allegra Hicks – the list is endless! You will also welcome the freshness and originality of designs by the "rising stars", whom Annie introduces to the West End. These include: Gharani Strok, Marc O’Neill, Cash CA Cashmere, Ramon Gurillo.
I popped into Moon recently to have a look at what’s new for winter – there is a great mix of fun and fashion with lovely clothes in glorious colours and some really imaginative accessories. Annie has some new ranges including Daniel Gornaggia, Georgina von Eztzdorf and Pazuki.
There are clothes for every occasion – elegant, stylish confident outfits, glorious beaded coats, finely tailored suits, relaxed suits and soft plaids. The selection is enticing and extensive and manages to combine class, quality, panache and frivolity – as Annie says:
"If we can dress Oscar and Bafta winners then surely we will have something beautiful for you from our collections".
She aims to provide a first class service to customers offering personal attention and expert advice. You can have a serious search for that something special or just enjoy a good browse – you will find clothes in sizes 8 – 16. Also stocked is some great jewellery and a range of tasteful accessories by designers such as Kirt Holmes, Barbara Harris, Joanna Luca and Jas M.B. I was captivated by the beautiful embroidered and the enormous soft leather handbags
Customers can have fun at the seasonal ‘Style Ins’ – no need to trot off to Paris or London to find out what is new in the world of fashion and design when you can shop at Moon. Regular customers receive a newsletter letting them know of special events and sales (which are great for picking up that special outfit at a bargain price).
In the 30 years Moon has been in the West End it has more than made its mark and the media attention and awards that Moon has attracted come as no surprise: The shop is included in the National Good Clothes Guide (merit award winner) and has been featured extensively in the press and fashion magazines such as Women’s Journal and Vogue. This September(2004) Harpers & Queen described the shop as "the wee wonder of Byres Road and according to Scotland on Sunday:
‘You will be spoiled for choice for classic designer fashions for all occasions… Annie Good has the knack of knowing exactly what is right for each client …You’ll be over the Moon when you see the beautiful outfits’.
So when you are out and about in Byres Road take the opportunity to stroll down Ruthven Lane and explore Moon. You will certainly not be disappointed and could even spruce up your image.
