The BFC and Bicester Village Open Their Second Pop-Up Shop Hosting The Work of All Your Favourite British Designers
Clear your diary and call your friends – the BFC is hosting another retail collaboration with Bicester Village. The new designer pop-up opens today and showcases 30 of Britain’s best emerging designers alongside some established stars. The list ranges from Wales Bonner, Alighieri and Phoebe English to Erdem, Nicholas Kirkwood and Mary Katrantzou. The aim of the event is “to champion this creativity and arm designers with the skills and tools needed to build sustained commercial success,” says Desirée Bollier, the Chief Merchant and Chair of The Bicester Village Shopping Collection 2018.
Fortunately for all us shopping enthusiasts, the vast success of last year’s pop-up (it earned over £100,000 across the 11 days it ran) has lead to the growth of the event this time round. Opening at the Bicester Village today, the event space is three times larger and will run twice longer. Even the offer is expanding as it now includes accessories, lifestyle products, and gift lines in addition to the ready-to-wear collections. Consider this the perfect opportunity to get a head start on your Christmas shopping while also supporting the next generation of British fashion elite.
