Following on from a hugely successful 1st year of Gok for TU at Sainsbury's, Gok Wan launches his Winter 2012 collection today.

The show-stopping Winter collection focuses on statement dresses and versatile separates and is packed full of bold feminine styles and beautiful silhouettes. Ultimate staples such as the bestselling perfect skinny jeans are back, along with new feminine tops, stunning knitwear and slimming skirts. Inspired by great Hollywood film icons such as Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor, this is the ultimate party collection and Gok at his best - sophisticated, glamorous and effortlessly chic.

Texture, embellishments and layering in an opulent colour palette of scarlet, black, oyster and this season's dramatic jewel print, bring a touch of luxury to a carefully considered range of Christmas 'must haves'. From essential party dresses to stylish separates, this 21 piece range comes in sizes 8 to 22 to ensure every woman can look and feel fabulous this season, whatever their shape.

The collection boasts a dress for every occasion from the Corded Lace Shift Dress (available in scarlet or black), which subtly skims the figure to offer a more demure evening style, to the sleek and sexy Slash Neck Lurex Ponte dress, which is perfect for partying. For the real showstopper, look no further than the Goddess Wrap dress which includes a detachable embellished gold statement belt that can be removed post Christmas and worn well into 2013 for both day or night. All dresses come with ingenious built in control slips to help smooth out any problem areas.

Separates include soft delicate knit sweaters and cardigans with textured scalloped detailing, peter pan collar blouses and the perfect pussybow blouse with body-balancing blouson sleeves. All pieces look great teamed with the Tapered Trouser or tucked into the Split Skirt.

Gok Wan comments: "This collectionis about flaunting your figure, it's grown up glamour and sophistication. Just gorgeous!

James Brown, Sainsbury's Head of Non Food comments: "The first year of Gok for TU has been a huge success for Sainsbury's and the Winter collection looks set to continue this momentum into our second year. With Gok and TU's understanding of what women really want, this collection has been carefully designed to ensure you look and feel great this festive season, whatever the occasion."
