Working at the POP-UP
Its been a full week at the new Pop-Up store and in its true natural form it has slowly taken shape over the week with new contributors and is now bursting with independent designers garments, designs and art. The ongoing mural has been organised by Neil Perry and he has involved some great illustrators so far, Elph, Matt Swan and Ross Christie to name but a few. I have put up a few photos of the work so far and the aim is to have it filled by the end of the month. Like in the summer the live art element to our pop up has been admired by onlookers yet there has been some amusement in the Mall as some don't quite understand that the concept of a work in progress and have expressed doubts that we are open for business as we still have the decorators in. I assure you we are open and come in and check out our art in progress!
It has been great having people come in and help and on Saturday we had Karen Orme pop in on her day off from Urban Outfitters to initially hang out in the space but ended up redressing the window and merchandising the shop! Thanks Karen!
