After months of anticipation, yesterday Leeds finally saw the opening of Victoria Gate, a brand new development in the heart of the city.
The long-awaited shopping centre by Hammerson (I thought the two squares at the front of the signage looked like an ‘H’) and adds formidable strength to the presence of its existing development in the city, the Victoria Quarter.
Together, Victoria Quarter and Victoria Gate, are now known as Victoria Leeds (can I get a David!). Anthropologie invited me along to their evening opening party.
Quite simply (because I’m turning this around unplanned in a day!), here’s the pics.
Anthropologie as ever, is a sheer delight and all the more in celebration of the festive season ahead. Gold trimmings everywhere, lustre and sequins – the store is decadent creativity at its best.
Pre-Christmas is the perfect time for the launch a centre where shoppers will naturally flock in the pursuit of gifts. By the time we left Anthropologie, the other shops were closing so didn’t get to explore the delights of John Lewis, & Other Stories and COS but I have a feeling we’ll be back!
