After a few date changes, and much needed Christmas rest, we kick started the New Year with our first little showcase event in the Rooftop venue of Shoreditch House on Wed 11th January....

We presented a small selection of independent fashion and accessory designers' work within a showcase installation as part of a House Seven evening, for Shoreditch House members. Co-hosting the event with us was The Forum, from The Secret Garden Party, presenting lecturers and debates on the London Olympics 2012. 

During the day leading up to the evening showcase, our selected designers sold their work in a small pop-up shop next to the Shoreditch House 4th Floor restaurant.

This is the start of many Showcase Designer events we plan to curate in Shoreditch House over the coming year, and it was a pleasure for us to invite these designers to take part with us in our first exhibition....

We'd like to thank Daisy from Honey Bunn Photography for giving us some of the gorgeous photographs she took of the night....

After such amazing press response for our Christmas Pop-Up Market - huge thanks once again to Amelia from Amelia's Magazine, and Time out for their features, amongst many others - the event was a huge success! Thank you to all our designers for their patience during the set-up, and it was so exciting to see the venue packed with Christmas shoppers from start to finish. Huge thanks again to everyone involved, and The Secret Garden Party family for their support. Next Year bigger and better - oh yes!
