Nominated by: Lorraine Joyce

Where: Police Street, Manchester

 

Fiorucci was founded in 1969 by Elio Fiorucci. It mixed Italian with American and British styles to produce a unique look, including designer jeans, which was picked up by Andy Warhol and Madonna amongst others. The Manchester shop was on Police Street in premises now occupied by Boodles.

 

Lorriane remembers:

A friend of ours managed the shop. It was probably the first designer shop in Manchester and sold limited quantity of clothes. It was exspensive, but exclusive. I still have a boxed bag we bought there and a fiorucci carrier bag.
