Tues 12th May: Pop-Up Shop "143"

As Soho starts to become blighted by abandoned retail units, one space has been resurrected and re-birthed into a pop-up shop entitled "143". It has been devised as an experimental shopping experience to run for 2 weeks, situated inbetween Carnaby Street and Newburgh street. The mixed merchandise laid out like a gallery, features an edited selection of exclusive
products chosen by Silver Spoon Attire and art-directed by Kate Moross (seen here together last night at the launch). Kate has designed the interior aswell as a special program outlining each designer and pieces stocked. She herself is selling prints, t-shirts, records.........even a bike which she has customized! I'm representing amongst the accessories section with a few of my S/S 09 Caterpillar necklaces. I have only produced 7 pieces from the season and this is where they will be selling! They are all hand-made and took bloody ages so I'm never doing it again! Each is made from hand-painted satin and this fabric turned out much better than the original samples so its been tricky letting go of them as they are so lush (even if I do say so myself)!
I'm gutted I didn't get a photo of Carri Mundane infront of the ice-cream stand lamp as she was wearing an ice-cream cone print ruck-sac............so hopefully someone else caught that moment and it will turn up on a blog somewhere in the blogstratosphere......
