Back on Savile Row for the fourth year running, Pop-Up Crisis opens its doors once more, from December 4th – 14th, to reveal a treasure trove of unique, designer one-off pieces of womenswear, menswear, gifts and accessories, raising vital funds for Crisis, the national charity for people experiencing homelessness across Great Britain.
Founding members, Anda Rowland of iconic Savile Row tailors, Anderson and Sheppard and renowned British fashion editor Tom Stubbs, supported by Crisis head of retail, Georgina Evans curate a jam-packed product offering of brand-new designer wares, past-season stock, imperfect pieces and seasonal sample collections from luxury brands, generously donated in past seasons by supporters including; Vivienne Westwood, Wales Bonner, Pringle of Scotland, Richard James, Stephen Jones Millinary, Tods, Vince, Hackett, Giles Deacon, Gabriela Hearst, Grenson, Bianca Saunders, Anderson Sheppard, Burberry, Christopher Kane, Jimmy Choo and Erdem.
The charity fundraiser, Pop-Up Crisis, will be hosted by developer Henigman at the decommissioned West End Central police station at 27 Savile Row, and will include a calendar of Christmas events including ‘shop their wardrobe’, an exclusive vignette of hand-picked items personally donated from celebrity friends of Crisis, including Kate Moss, Stormzy, David Gandy and Aisling Bea, wreath-making workshops with social enterprise, The Glasshouse, offering second chances through horticultural training to women based in UK prisons, a late night shopping evening with drinks and music by DJ Jonjo Jury, culminating in the annual raffle competition including the cream of the crop donated items.
Nearly a quarter of a million households across England are now experiencing the worst forms of homelessness. Crisis works with thousands of people experiencing homelessness every year, providing education, training and support with housing, employment and health and wellbeing. All proceeds raised from Pop-Up Crisis will go towards Crisis’ work in helping people discover a life beyond homelessness.
The ambitious team are hoping to smash the funds raised in previous years reaching a goal of £125k (To ensure the maximum contribution to the cause, staffing of the event is purely voluntary and costs are kept to a minimum.)
