Debenhams putting the spotlight on fabulous party wear styles

From: Debenhams
Published: Fri Nov 07 2008 has announced several changes have been made to their site to help shoppers make an informed decision when choosing from the new extended range.

This year the range includes an exclusive collection of limited edition dresses by designers at Debenhams and trend-led styles in the Cocktail Hour, Siren and Jewelled Brights selection.

Celebrity stylist Mark Heyes is on hand to help the shopper make a final decision on what type of party wear to buy. Several ranges of dresses come specifically recommended by Heyes, who has also written several style advice pages and features using videos to give fashion tips. There is also useful advice to read on the site - such as what suits a person's body shape - to give shoppers more information on the sort of clothes they would look good wearing.

The collection of black dresses is one of the most popular on the site and there are several new gadgets which help cut out the likelihood of buyer disappointment. The improved zoom function allows users to look at the dresses up close meaning there are no surprises when the material or the stitching don't quite match up with expectations.

Whilst images show the basic look of a dress, has also added videos to many of its evening dresses pages. These show a model walking down a runway or giving a twirl to display how the dress reacts to certain kinds of movement.

Another new feature of the website is that it allows customers to leave a review based on their experience. Reviewers can leave a rating out of five for each dress as well as a short description of what they liked or disliked about the dress. This can be a useful tool for shoppers unsure which of the new range of party dresses to go for, as it offers an unbiased customer opinion on the products.
