Sweaty Betty blog: Christmas
Empowering Women Through Fitness
With Christmas just around the corner, here's the story of how our beautiful festive windows came to be.
At SBHQ Christmas begins in July. Believe it or not before summer had even truly begun, we had were glitter spraying antique books, designing festive deer heads for our mannequins, making paper chain decorations and homemade snow globes from jam jars, printing custom made SB print tissue paper (and that's just for one store out of 30...), the list goes on.
The vision behind this years Christmas window was to set a Sweaty Betty 'Christmas at the cabin' scene, taking inspiration from the Adventure collection and extending the journey. After well over 600 hours of arts and craft sessions from our truly dedicated VM team, we hope the window displays are enough to get you feeling well and truly festive.

This morning I had a meeting with our graphic designer to go through our SS10 catalogue design and last week I introduced the SS10 fashion show to all our managers. Christmas?! when's Christmas??? well I can tell you what SB will be doing for christmas 2010, but I'm not sure I know what I'll be doing for Christmas 09...read more
