Fashion & Design Month in Central London
September has been a busy month in Central London as all things fashion and design has gripped the capital.
Our activities kicked off September with Fashion & Design Month on Regent Street which sees a whole host of talks, workshops and activities taking place within our customer’s stores and restaurants. Still to come is an illustration class with leading illustrator Naomi Howarth as well as a talk on how to use social media to find inspiration whilst maintaining balance with the offline world.
To complement Fashion & Design month, we have partnered for the first time with London Design Festival to create the Regent Street & St James’s Design District. The district is one of eight districts across the city and provides us with a platform to showcase not only the exceptional architecture of our own buildings, but also the creativity and craftsmanship found in the global flagship stores, independent boutiques and tucked away galleries on Regent Street and in St James’s.
Participating customers have put on special in-store activities and exhibitions to celebrate London as the design capital of the world. These include live shirt making and hand embroidery from leading designer Emma Willis, the art of spectacle making in-store at Cubitts, pop up exhibition Mexico Design Time from the Marion Friedmann gallery, a talk on inspiring design for high performance at E by Equinox, and many others.
Fashion & Design Month and our partnership with London Design Festival are just a flavour of the ways we continue to create interesting and dynamic places for people to live, work and visit. The campaigns help provide a point of difference and drive footfall for our customers. We toasted to the success of the Design District during our designated Design District ‘Late Night’ where guests from participating customers, Westminster councillors, local ward councillors and local community groups joined us for a brief reception followed by a well-received tour around some highlights of the district.Back to Media & Insights
