Out of the blue came the potential for another pop up  shop! But this one is looking to be a bit different to the others! Basically for one week we will be a shop within a fashion shop. I am very excited about this and we have lots of exciting ideas in the pipeline for this very central London pop up shop!

Stay tuned for more news and updates about this!

Take a look inside (if you’re not in London!)

If you are in London this week you should definitely pop into our pop up shop In Space. Products and brands you won’t find elsewhere from four companies that normally trade online.

For those of you not able to make it – here’s a couple of pics of the space:

If you’d like to come into the store during a quieter time then today or tomorrow is perfect. We are open till 7pm so come by after work!

Post Pink Party

A few pics from last nights charity event with Ellisons Solicitors. The evening was to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. The evening themed on pink was a big success with the raffle raising £500! The total raised on the evening by everyone was £700.

We were in the lovely location of the Wivenhoe House Hotel.
There was other companies with stalls at the evening one of whom was a friend of mine who does very nice cakes (Pause for Torte). These are just some she made for the evening:

Here is a little pic taken at the Colour evening the other week. I am the one in green in the middle and I’m standing with a couple of the guests.

The dress is Jane dyed in a crunchy apple green colour. I’ve never worn this shade before. It worked really well with black accessories. Here you can see I’ve styled it with a black necklace but I also had my fitted black jacket and black shoes. I kept the tights to a natural skin tone which worked well.
I couldn’t not wear a colour as the evening was about colour.
What do you think of the new dye to order shades?

No time to stop yet!

Things have gone a bit crazy here in the studio. Hopefully Friday I will find some time to do a massive clear up.

No sooner had I got back from the Pop Up Piccadilly shop, it was full on with this Thursdays evening event! The silk jersey fabric arrived back from the brilliant Insley & Nash print and dye studio, dyed in a fabulous fresh crunchy apple green shade. Quickly made myself a dress out of the silk jersey to wear tomorrow evening!

If you’ve ever organised an event, it takes a lot of hard work and persistence! Anyway, it is just around the corner now and everything has been falling into place. One last push and we will be ready.

If anybody is still interested in coming tomorrow evening to the Colourful Evening in Bloomsbury London there are a couple of tickets still available. You will need to get in there soon as the ticket sales close at 4pm.

Pictures will be taken and I will do a blog post after I’ve had a rest!!

Fashion Popping Up in Piccadilly Circus, London

Leave a comment

Wow, last week flew by. On Wednesday 28th my business Kerry O’Brine Womens Wear got offered a spot in the Piccadilly Circus Pop Up Britain store. Of course, this was an opportunity not to be missed! Since that moment, I have been in a whirlwind. Lots of things to prepare and get ready.

Dropped off stock Sunday evening and saw a lot of great London views on the way:IMG_3166 Canary Wharf Driving Towerbridge 1 london eye 1

(2nd Sept) Monday morning was a manic set up of stock, signage and finally all ten businesses in the store were ready at 2pm to open to the public!

Here is a picture of part of my area:

and here are just a few of the brilliant brands that were in store with me:
Bruno + Bean is a fresh and quirky brand who provide stylish interior accessories. The brainchild of Glenn Behan + Dermot Doyle, each product is hand-picked for inclusion in our range.

Heralding from London’s Central St Martins, Alice Ashby has previously worked as assistant knitwear designer at Rag & Bone in New York. She then went on to co-found luxury knitwear label The North Circular two years ago. Combining a traditional British craft alongside a modern day vision she launched Blake LDN in September 2012.

London Mummy
As a mum to my gorgeous daughter and a former interior designer, London Mummy was born out of a passion for good design and a love of unique, high quality handmade items which are something more than just the usual run of the mill things found on nearly every High Street. The exclusive London Mummy Handmade Limited Edition range is carefully designed and handcrafted to my own exacting standards, right here in London using high quality fabrics and materials. You won’t find this range anywhere else, just here at London Mummy.

Designed to be loved for a lifetime, each of our British designed scarves are hand woven from the finest quality cashmere and silk and hand printed in Nepal, making each scarf unique.

Last night (8th Sept) we then took it all down ready for the next group of businesses!
