BRIGHTON FASHION WEEK OPENS ITS FIRST CHRISTMAS POP-UP BOUTIQUE

Brighton Fashion Week has opened its first pop-up store in Brighton’s South Lane, to showcase undiscovered talent and help shoppers find unique Christmas gifts – from clothes and accessories to art, jewellery, homeware and curiosities.

In true Brighton Fashion Week style, the pop-up boutique is excitingly eclectic and features one-of-a-kind pieces from over 40 national and international designers, artists and creators.

‘After the success of Brighton Fashion Week 2014, the next logical step in helping to support the immense talent at the catwalk shows was to provide a space where people can try and buy the outfits.

‘We’re often asked where to get hold of the products on show after the fashion week, so this store will help bring unique national designers to more Brighton shoppers.

‘It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to work with design talent at Brighton Fashion Week and our pop-up shop opening is just the first of many new ideas we have for the future!’

Lizzy Bishop, director of Brighton Fashion Week
