Traditionally, words with stress accents on vowels do not feature them when capitalised.
However, Harrods requires both capitalised and non-capitalised words with accents to
always feature them for consistency, e.g. ‘CHÂTEAU MARGAUX – BORDEAUX’.
Wines and spirits named after a place of origin should always appear with the initial
letter capitalised, e.g. Champagne, Cognac, Port. All other drink names should appear in
lowercase.

WIDOWS AND ORPHANS
In typesetting, widows and orphans are words or short lines at the beginning or end of a
paragraph, which are left dangling at the top or bottom of a column, separated from the
rest of the paragraph. Where possible, paragraphs should end neatly and without widows,
orphans or hyphenated words dangling. This is also the responsibility of the designer but,
where possible, aim to check the aesthetic layout of language for all communication.

WOMENSWEAR
Always written as one word, e.g. Womenswear, not Women’s Wear. Never Ladieswear.
