Hey big spenders!

August 28th, 2009 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 
As suggested in the Ofcom report I mentioned on Monday, we now have proof that us Brits aren't letting the recession put us off investing in new technology. A new report by the GfK Group shows that the flat panel TV market grew by 22.9% in the first half of this year, when compared to the same period in 2008. This is fantastic news for us in particular because LG is currently the fastest growing TV brand in the flat panel market, up 62% on value Jan – May. This means LG have now overtaken Sony!

August 28th, 2009 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 
Returning from lunch I got caught in a it of a downpour and then it hit me.. It's the end of August. Summer's come and gone! But then I realised the plus point - I'm old enough now for September to mean only one thing, no longer Back to School but - LONDON FASHION WEEK!

But it's not all change as LG makes its fifth appearance at LFW as its official consumer electronics provider. In a recent press release London...

This Season’s Trends

August 24th, 2009 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 
I hope everyone is ready for the return of the tweed, velvet and leather because this month's Vogue has outlined all the up and coming styles: Velvet will be back with force, every colour, shape and style has been walked down the catwalk; the likes of Stella McCartney and Elie Saab have taken a new approach from the old frumpy eighties velvet, and we see a sophisticated, well shaped cocktail dress theme coming out. We will be seeing a whole new side to leather, as it looses the biker, boyish image and takes up a new well cut, light-weight feminine image, with...
