Shoppers at Princes Quay shopping centre in Hull participated in an en masse de- stress and relaxation event, ahead of the Christmas shopping rush. On November 2, National

Stress Awareness Day, shoppers were invited to join staff to take part in Tai Chi sessions and relax with a Chinese head massage. Shoppers took part in the soft

martial art from 5 to 45 minutes as one of the region’s leading demonstrators guided them through the slow movements, designed to bring about a state of calm and clarity. According to recent research,

stress levels amongst UK adults have doubled in four years, while further studies have also shown that Christmas shopping increases blood pressure in 50 per cent of shoppers and heart rates rise by an average of 10 per cent.

Student nurse wins her very own Gok fashion fix

A new generation of photobooth, created by Philippe Starck and Photo-Me, was launched at the Saatchi gallery on November 2. The event attracted a mix of talent from

the arts, fashion and technology worlds and a stirring performance by new talent Lianne Di Havas, who recently performed on Later With Jools Holland. Guests included Philippe Stark himself, models Jade Parfitt and Ana Araujo and actress Davina Taylor. The booth, incorporating augmented reality and touchscreen

technology, will be rolled out nationally. Francois De Freitas, head of marketing at Photo-Me said: “We are

very proud of the new photobooth, which combines the creativity of Philippe Starck with Photo-Me’s latest digital technology. Together we have reinvented the photobooth, moving beyond simple functionality to a compelling entertainment event.”


Salome Keriti had a shopping trip to remember when she was taken on a spending spree at The Mall Luton. The 21 year-old student nurse’s wardrobe underwent a £1,000 transformation, courtesy of celebrity stylist Mr Gok Wan. To celebrate the launch of

Autumn/Winter Fashion at The Mall, shoppers who spent £50 or more were given the chance to win their money back in fashion vouchers and enter to win the exclusive personal shopping spree with Gok Wan. The promotion ran across all nine of The Mall Fund’s shopping centres throughout the UK and Salome’s name was drawn from the thousands of shoppers who entered.
