This Wednesday, Press including myself were brought up to Bicester Village (which is around an hour away from London by train). To be honest, I have been hearing about Bicester Village, one of the nine chic outlet shopping villages since I moved to London a few years ago – however, I have never had the chance to go up there (and honestly speaking, thought I wouldn’t find much at an outlet). Now let me tell you… the place is amazing – they have stores from Missoni, Celine, Gucci, Dior, YSL, Prada, Miu Miu, Burberry and Charlotte Olympia (however Olympia is only on for three months). Back to the event I attended… Alexa Chung hosted the launch of the annual British designers collective at Bicester village. Now in its third year, the pop-up boutique concept store is an exclusive collab between Bicester Village and the BFC, which offers emerging British talent the opportunity to showcase their collections in a unique setting. Names included Mawi, Erickson Beamon, Holly Fulton, Peter Pilotto, Lulu & Co, Kirkwood and Marios Schwab to name a few.
The event was super lovely – with speeches from Alexa, Harold Tillman and Desiree Bollier. The event ended with a shopping spree around Bicester Village. The sun made the day that little bit better.
Thank you to the BFC, Starworks and Bicester Village for a super amazing event.
