All the staff at chesca join me to wish you, our customers, a great time over the festive season.  Many of you have become our friends, you tell us about your weddings, your nights out, your holidays and we try our level best to fulfil your needs.  We are not always successful since we don't run the post office or the courier services but we do our best.  Our team try to repair zips, untangle ribbon, hand sew on sequins, hem trousers and we hope that we please the most fastidious taste.

We have introduced size 12, even a few size 10s, refined our sizes again and again  Introduced quirky dresses and coats with cocoon shapes and draped hems, fashionable but still flattering.  Mother of the bride? we have added draped chiffon hems to our portfolio of more classic figure flattering lace and chiffon shapes.

and we are about to introduce, for spring, some specially chosen international brands, under the umbrella of franchesca, such as Gerry Weber, Basler, Joseph  Ribkoff, Gardeur, Michelle, Frank Walder, Gina Bacconi--and we start our sister brand at size 10.  we will add size charts for each brand -and a host of other info to enable you to outfit build and mix and match.

I love chesca, and it will start its 14th year in January.  I have nurtured it, and I identify with it-indeed, I wear it all the time-for work and play and now a teenager reaching adulthood , it is time for me to turn my attention to a new project with my friend , Sandie Osbourn, who has nurtured the business which bore her name for many years and we will now start a new chapter next month, in a new online business, www.franchescafashion.com  Want a brochure and to join our project, let us know your email and we will sign you up to our weekly newsletter, crammed with advice and offers.

Thank you for your interest in us, we look forward to the next 13 years and let us see what we will do together.....
