This weekend a whole host of hot young London designers are coming together for a joint sample sale to offer up some of their hidden treasures to help fulfill your Christmas Shopping lists. Initially organised by the Cooperative Designs crew, the list has grown to this extended family of fashion friends:
Cooperative Designs, David David, Maria Francesca Pepe, Noel Stewart, Darkroom Store, Scott Wilson, Corrie Williamson, Julian J Smith, Carolyn Massey, Rebeka Vitka, Patternity, Jean-Pierre Braganza
I suggested perhaps Noel Stewart should set up his own Santa's grotto but I'm not totally sure the idea has been welcomed with open arms! However, I have heard whisperings of mulled wine, mince pies and festive cheer from the designers involved to aid you in rifling around the selection of womens and mens clothing, jewellery and accessories. I contacted a few of them for photos to give you some insight into the goods up for grabs............ and at the same time asked David, Maria and Patternity to send a snap of their favourite thing at the moment.......... David's is a painting of sailing boats, Maria's little ghost friends and Patternity's "Please find attached our studio entertainment! A cluster of toilet brushes - (the studio cleaning rota has just been drafted out - so someone has gone and bought a years worth of toilet brushes from Dalston poundland in celebration - in our eyes they look like a pattern of beautiful white fireworkesque explosions!)"
4 Wilkes Street , E1 (just behind Brick lane)
Saturday at 10:00am - Sunday at 6:00pm
