On Saturday 6 March, the Retail Trust was entertaining shoppers on Oxford Street by showcasing its four Search for a Star finalists in House of Fraser’s shop window.
The four finalists were putting their song choices in the hands of the public with the Retail Trust calling for Twitterers to vote for the songs each girl should sing. They will be styled by Mark Heyes of GMTV fame and will wear clothing supplied by House of Fraser, which will be on sale for spectators to buy.
As the only charity helping current, past and future employees across the retail sector, Retail Trust created Search For A Star as a way of raising funds to help the industry.
The pavement was packed, you couldn't walk you past without being forced onto the road, did Westminster really let this happen on a Saturday afternoon?
I could hear the singing from Oxford Circus tube.
