A new women's clothes shop has opened in Chesterfield.

Dotique has launched at the Chatsworth Road premises where ironmongers Johnsons used to be based.

The building has undergone an extensive refurbishment - most noticeably it is now white.

Dotique is run by Dorothy Robinson, of Chesterfield, who decided to enter the world of business after 30 years of teaching primary school children.

Speaking to the Derbyshire Times last month, Dorothy said: "I've always been interested in fashion and felt it was time for a change in career.

"I'm keen to add to the Chatsworth Road scene - it's a fantastic street with so much variety.

"I felt there was a need for more clothes for ladies in Chesterfield.

"I'll be selling timeless, affordable clothing."
