Available to visit from now until mid-June, Bicester Village and the British Fashion Council have teamed up to champion the future of British fashion with an exciting pop-up boutique aiming to promote innovative and sustainable British design
The Creative Spot x British Fashion Council will run until 15 June 2022 and is ideal for a shopping pitstop with a vibrant meets educational edge. Decked out with a daisy print exterior (and matching Mini Cooper) the space has been created specially for Bicester Village and the British Fashion Council by Richard Quinn (recipient of the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design).
Featuring several exclusive pieces from Quinn, including flamboyant floral print bucket hats, T-shirts and scarves, the limited-edition pop-up will also showcase an additional 18 of the country’s most exciting designers.
Visit to peruse (and purchase) pieces from makers such as Alighieri, Christopher Kane, Completedworks, Eudon Choi, Mary Katrantzou, Mira Mikati, Mother of Pearl, Patrick McDowell, Phoebe English, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Roksanda, Sophia Webster and many other talented names.
Furthermore, 100% of all sales will go directly to the designers, with each brand receiving access to Bicester Collection’s business mentorship programme, which supports designers in their development and growth journey.
In addition, the boutique introduces the designs of Rejina Pyo and Tata Naka to Bicester Village and just in time for the Jubilee celebrations, will feature Ivana Nohel’s silk scarves (a favourite of Her Majesty The Queen), exclusively available in the Village.
The Creative Spot x British Fashion Council pop-up is a joint commitment of Bicester Village and the British Fashion Council to promote British talent. Coinciding with celebrations to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the pop-up boutique offers designers retail space free of charge while providing them with unique exposure to discerning guests from all over the world.
Richard Quinn commented: “The Jubilee is a momentous occasion and we are so honoured to be involved in the celebrations. The Queen has always shown a real interest in British fashion so the Jubilee is a perfect opportunity to showcase the creativity and talent of a range of British designers. In our store design we have endeavoured to recreate the celebratory feeling of the British summertime, bringing a touch of brightness and jubilation to Bicester Village at this very special moment in time.”
Desirée Bollier, Chair and Global Chief Merchant, The Bicester Collection, told The Wordrobe “British fashion has a unique spirit and energy that ignites the imagination. Bicester Village and the British Fashion Council are proud to celebrate the exceptional rising stars of the British fashion industry and we are delighted, once again, to provide a platform to nurture and support tomorrow’s talent today by providing them with mentoring to grow their businesses.”
