i have never bought their denim again...
Most indigo jeans will do that anyway. I work in Levi's where the quality is obviously miles better than Primark, but we still advise customers not to wear their jeans with new white shoes until theyve been washed a few times. My hands turn blue just after working in there for a couple of hours, so it's not just Primark.

Anyway, I buy my tights there all the time! and I've gotten some cute cheap dresses and accessories there over the years... countless pairs of flats and belts! but I am picky and careful, when I was at college I often made the mistake of impulse buying there and bought a load of cheap looking crap half the time. Sometimes it is better to wait a couple of weeks and spend the money somewhere else...

I love Primark! It used to be my favourite place when I lived in London and when I had to move home, I bought a box full of their ballet flats back home. I try to make a trip to London every year just to stock up on Primark shoes and clothes. So far, my shoes and clothes are fine, I have some which I have been wearing for more than 2 years and they are still great, just look a bit worn out. I have no problem with thier jeans, they fit me like a dream so I got one in indigo and black. It still fits lovely after so many washes.

Primark or AKA Primarni is a great place to shop for certain things, granted they don't always have the best quality of fabric but they don't cheat their customers by over charging them so I don't understand why people have an issue with the whole ethical side of things.

I used to think that Primark was awful to buy from because of the ethical issues behind them but I went to India recently with my family and because my uncle has a few friends there I was able to see the whole child labour thing infront of me. Yes the environment is awful, they are made to work long hours; but that made me appreciate places such as Primark more.

Why? Because if it wasn't for cheap shops like Primark, those poor people would literally have nothing, atleast what they are receiving now isn't great but it helps them live.

Primark AW 10 Collection can be seen here

http://www.instyle.co.uk/fashion/edi...rimark-aw-2010

Pretty dissapointed as I usually like their AW collections more, as V1ki just said it's florals florals and more florals in summer but I don't like anything apart from this coat

I like the coat and some of the boots but nothing really stands out for me.

Some of the looks are identical to the ones in the Rag & Bone FW10/11 runway show, which was my favorite collection from this season I think the AW collection looks pretty nice. I still can't get over how cheap Primark is. It's crazy. We don't have any stores here that sell such trendy clothes for that good of a price. It makes so much more sense to sell trendy items so cheap, because I know the moment I buy something that I won't be wearing it for longer than half a season, hehe.

i like it very much
I like Primark very much. Sometimes you've got to spend a lot of time looking for something special, but it's worth it because the things there are pretty and cheap.

What i like most is the accessory section. Everytime I go to Primark I buy some accessories.

The 1st shop here in Barcelona opened last year, now there's a second one near my house. It's amazing!
