LDC MARYLEBONE POP UP
Running a small business constantly feels like you are spinning lots of plates at once and organising a pop up shop is a huge amount of work. So if many emerging designers feel the same way and want the same thing, it makes so much sense to share the load with each other and all pull together.
London Designers Collective are a start-up doing exactly that. We were invited to be a part of their five-day pop up in Marylebone in Central London with ten other emerging brands to sell our Spring/Summer collection, whilst sharing the costs and stresses of organising it with everyone involved.
The week was so much fun: not only did we sell lots and get to meet so many new customers and fans of RJ, we threw a great launch party, hosted an evening celebrating women in business, and as designers we all got to know each other so well: forming friendships, swapping advice and cheering each other on.
Thank you to everyone who came to support us, the other brands who made the event such a success and a particular thank you to Gemma from London Designers Collective for making it all happen.
