So, picture the scene. You're in a charity shop on the outskirts of Croydon, not famed for its fashionable or wealthy citizens (Kate Moss doesn't count - she moved out years ago). You're flicking absently through the racks of clothes - Primark, BHS, New Look, Primark again, F&F at Tesco, River Island, Galliano... Hang on a minute! Galliano?
You wonder if it's real - maybe it's some dodgy knock-off? In addition to the rubberized label at the neck, there's a hologram embedded into a label at the seam, always a good sign. There's also a metal tab saying Galliano near the hem, and the front ties are finished with signed metal beads. The dress itself is a sheer fine knit, with a slip to wear underneath, also with label. You look at the price tag - £6.00! That's less than the Oasis dress next to it! You pay and skip to the door.
