Guilt-free fashion at Designer Jumble

Designer Jumble is hosting a series of amazing activities and events to mark Fashion Revolution Day, on 24th April, the first anniversary of the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory, to show shoppers how to continue to enjoy fashion in a humane way.

Special events

  • Fashion blogger Susie Bubble will be dressing the windows on the day, to reflect current catwalk trends but using recycled fashion.
  • Designer Katie Jones, who was showcased at London Fashion Week in Feb, will be in store upcycling a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier jumpsuit in her inimitable quirky style, and taking bookings for personal workshops.
  • Fashion stylists Isabelle Bricknall, Alice Wilby, Vanessa Gillingham (Vogue/Glamour/Net-a-porter), Hesther King and others will be on hand to help shoppers find high end looks that best suit them, using only ethical or recycled fashion so you can shop guilt-free. (Book an appointment with abi@designerjumblesale.com to ensure you get a space)
  • Graffiti artists Pen Pushers will be creating a special “Fashion Revolution” artwork installation live before your eyes.
  • Sew It Forward is a frock-friendly initiative from The Good Wardrobe that encourages people to share their sewing, knitting and mending skills. Bring a garment in need of some TLC and find out how to keep it looking good for longer.

If that wasn’t enough…

Designer Jumble will be unveiling a collection of 1000 astonishing designer pieces from one woman’s wardrobe: Hannalore Smart, widow of Circus King Billy Smart Jr, has collected iconic items by Westwood, Alaia, YSL, Chanel, Dior and more from the last three decades, including a rare Issey Miyake moulded corset, considered one of his most iconic designs.

Opening times

Events will run between 10am-6pm, entry and attendance is free.
Closed for private party in the evening.
