Harvey Nichols

   Currently one of London’s best-known fashion outlets, the Harvey Nichols store in Knightsbridge was founded in 1817. It has gained a growing reputation for offering collections by cutting-edge contemporary designers, and now has its own Harvey Nichols womenswear collection, heavily influenced by Hong Kong designers since the store was taken over by Dickson Concepts of Hong Kong in 1991. The store featured regularly as the favourite haunt of fashion victims Edina and Patsy in the popular BBC situation comedy Absolutely Fabulous, who were frequently seen laden with purchases from ‘Harvey Nicks’.
