Sat 5th Feb: "Bright Young Things" Part 2

The time has come around the the 2nd installment of the Selfridges "Bright Young Things" scheme with the final designers taking residence in the store's windows. Here is a selection of the installations and some shots of the related products in the pop-up shop. All 20 labels brought together under the umbrella project have special pieces for sale which will still be set up for fashion week (also online). Any international visitors to London for the shows should most definitely make a note to schedule in a pilgrimage to this mecca of new generation goodies. If you do visit town this month, you can make direct contact with the designers too at one-off workshops hosted in the space. Here are the dates for your diary:

14 FEB: Craig Lawrence's Knitting Workshop

15 FEB: Alex Noble's Live Fashion Sculpture

16 FE: Simone Rocha - Meet the Designer

17 FEB: Sophie Stephens' Life Drawing Class

18 FEB: Jessica Dance's Tea, Cake and Set Design event

19 FEB: Little Glass Clementine - Breaking & Making Sustainable Jewellery

20 FEB: Patternity host The Journey of Pattern from Mundane to Magnificent
