Monsoon is another high street favourite that targets the slightly older, more fashion-conscious market, with an ethnic feel. It's been going since 1973, and they now have 400 Monsoon and Accessorize stores across the UK, and 600 in total across the world. The brand stocks some very feminine designs, and also has a wide variety of occasion wear perfect for proms, bridesmaids and fancy balls. Additionally, Monsoon was where Accessorize began, before the brand got its own stores. Celeb fans of the brand include Emma Watson (often spotted out in a pair of Monsoon pumps), Tulisa Contostavlos, Little Mix, Taylor Swift and Cat Deeley. Monsoon maintains an ethical attitude too. They encourage energy saving methods and recycling throughout their business, support ethical design and handicrafts in their range, support and fairly pay their artists, and through the Monsoon Accessorize Trust, have been helping to improve the lives of disadvantaged women and children in Asia since 1994.
