A clothing shop is relocating to be able to expand.

Ralph & Mimi, which opened in 2016 on Beaumont Street as a children's clothing shop, is moving to Hexham Market Place.

Owner Roya Manouchehri said: "I wanted to do the womenswear and menswear, and I absolutely loved our old shop, but you can't really expand.

"I also wanted to bring my studio here because right now it's at home."

The new shop has three floors, which will also house Roya's studio and The Style Muse, a new scheme which allows people to borrow outfits for events such as weddings and garden parties.

Ralph & Mimi stock a variety of designer brands as well as her own, Manouchehri.

They also offer a bespoke made-to-measure clothing service.

The shop is now offering regular sewing classes, which Roya said have proved very popular, with people booked in for classes as far in advance as early next year.

"We did them a little bit at the other place, but here we can actually do it properly," said Roya.

Roya plans to also host a day in October half-term to allow young people to come and make a Christmas stocking.

The new shop will be open to the public for the first time on Saturday.

"I can't wait," said Roya.

Shop opening hours will be 10am-5pm, Monday to Saturday.
