Walking into Harrods is like equivalent of a child walking into Disney World for the first time. As you walk into this massive department store, located in central London, you are immediately greeted by a man in a nice suit. As he opens the double doors to invite you in, you can’t help but feel special. They have all the most prestigious brand names known to man. You could say Harrod's is your dream closet where you find all the clothes you’ve ever seen on the runways from places like Milan to New York Fashion Week.
While studying abroad past spring, I was fortunate enough to be only 10 minutes away from this magnificent mansion. I constantly would go there to take notes on all the new incoming trends because London is about 1-2 years ahead in their trends than the U.S. Each time you walk into Harrods feels new, despite its monstrosity, the makes staff changes to every department every week and individual displays nearly every day.
Though my favorite part might fall in women's fashion, there is also a toy kingdom which is every child’s dream, a fancy food hall filled with glamorously displayed fish, steaks, produce, and chicken. One of my favorite rooms is what I like to call “the Willy Wonka room,” because there is no doubt the second you step foot into this room filled with chocolates and sweets, you will feel like you entered Wonkaland
If you ever find yourself wandering the streets of London, definitely stop by one of the world’s most popular department stores to enjoy the beauty of Gucci, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, and so many more.
