EXCITEMENT is mounting as a new fashion boutique is about to open in Middlewich.

Stylist Stuart Leeman is unveiling Pretty Perfect, a ladies fashion shop in Wheelock Street today, Saturday.

The 29-year-old doesn't want to spoil the surprise but has given the Guardian a sneak peek inside.

Swish new decor has transformed the empty shop into a relaxing clothes emporium.

Winsford Guardian:

This is the first exclusive glimpse inside new fashion boutique Pretty Perfect

Designer inspired clothes hang on rails beneath glass shelves and candles.

A sofa and a coffee machine have been installed to encourage customers to relax and unwind.

A range of handbags, purses, shoes, trainers and scarves will be available.

"I'm keeping the curtains closed but it does look amazing," said Stuart. "I'm very happy with it.

"We have mannequins in the window and hanging baskets outside."

Turning the empty premises into a stylish outlet has been a labour of love.

"We've been working morning, noon and night," said Stuart. "It looks completely different to when we first got it. There were plain white rooms and grey carpet. None of that can be seen now."

Belfast born Stuart is a former stylist and personal shopper for the House of Fraser and has has worked as a manager for high fashion shoe retailer Dune London.

The former model is an experienced ladies and gents hair stylist and has recently been working as a barber at Menz Mane in Townfields Road, Winsford.

"I've been in fashion, hair and beauty my whole life," said Stuart. "This is something I've wanted to do for a long time but never had the opportunity. I've managed boutiques for other people, now is the time to do something for myself.

"This is an amazing opportunity. I feel nervous but excited at same time. It's full steam ahead now for something I enjoy doing."

Stuart is offering a 20 per cent discount as an opening offer and is looking forward to helping women dress with confidence.
