New fashion boutique opens in the capital


By Cara Sulieman

A NEW fashion boutique has opened in Edinburgh and aims to bring a little bit of ‘Ritz’ glitz to the capital.

Arkangel & Felon re-launched last week with a complete overhaul of the shop floor, IT and ordering systems.

And with it comes an injection of new brands into Scotland, promising fashionistas a taste of the glamourous lifestyle the shop’s owners have experienced.

Husband and wife team Sarah Cosgrove and Andy Kidd are behind the venture which includes top brands from designers such as Australian Leona Edmiston, Wilbur & Gussie and jewellery from Fiona Paxton.

Sarah spent 15 years as a freelance fashion stylist and props buyer in London for the likes of the Ritz Hotel, Saatchi & Saatchie and Hello!

And Husband Andy has given up his successful career working as a Business Change Consultant with firm Travelport to drive the growth of the new business.

Sarah is excited about bringing a whole new vibe to the Edinburgh fashion scene.

She said: “I’ve always had a passion for clothes, fashion and style.

“Owning and running an independent shop has always been an aspiration of mine and to have found such a unique opportunity in Arkangel, now Arkangel & Felon, is one that fills me with excitement and enthusiasm.

“Whilst we’ll be introducing up and coming designers and contemporary brands to Edinburgh that are not often found anywhere else in Scotland we’re also keeping some of Arkangel’s favourite brands such as Lilith; Anonymous; Allegra Hicks; Philippe Audibert & Philippe Ferrandis.

“With the launch of our website and online store at the end of August we’ll be able to offer our carefully selected clothes and accessories not just to those in or visiting the capital but on a global scale.”
