UPDATE - There's a new store for 2012 running in the 2nd half of October
Kingly Place is pretty much guaranteed to hold at least one pop-up shop, it seems. After the DMU Students' shop, and the Ham Made store, comes a pop up shop by the London College of Fashion, set to open in mid-September.
"London College of Fashion is proud to announce the opening of COLLEGE SHOP, its first ever pop up retail space in the heart of the West End; located in Kingly Court, a haven of independent shops, just off London’s famous Carnaby Street. Launching on Thursday 8 September 2011, in the lead up to London Fashion Week, it will run for just three weeks, stocking unique and one-off creations by its legion of multi-talented alumni.
With a boutique gallery feel shoppers will be able to pick luxury, affordable pieces by future design stars. Stock will rotate daily allowing clients to discover beautiful one-off designs from recent graduates in womenswear, menswear, footwear, accessories, jewellery, fashion photography and illustration alongside more established LCF graduates from the last 5 years including hot young designers William Tempest, Ada Zanditon, Beatrice Boyle and Hasan Hejazi.
Pieces will be wearable but luxurious and have been selected by a buying team including Angela Quaintrell – former buying director at Liberty. Prices start at just £20 and go up to over £400 – with most pieces between £100 and £250."
