Tuesday night saw a collection of ten Fashion Scout current and alumni designers come together for a successful sample sale evening at Beach Blanket Babylon Shoreditch. Between 6-10pm buyers and the general public were able to get their hands on fantastically priced samples and pre-order pieces from the A/W 13/14 collections.
We had a quick catch up with one of the designers Ming-Pin Tien on how the night went:
How did the sample sale go? Who did you meet at the sample sale?
It went really well! There was a Chinese girl who purchased one of my AW12 pieces and it turned out she is running a PR company based in Hong Kong. We discussed the possibility of working together in the near future and it will be amazing if that happens.
Is there a piece from your collection, which you noticed was the most popular at the sale?
I had a neoprene top with metal studs implanted from my A/W12 collection and it just dragged people’s attention!
The busy evening also saw the display of the latest collections by Eudon Choi, Patick li, Kirsty Ward, Danielle Foster, Alice Lee, David Longshaw, Shao Yen, Eleanor Amoroso, Claudia Ligari, Jennifer Morris and Manuela Dack. With pieces ranging from jewellery and accessories to garments there was something for everyone in the lovely light space at Beach Blanket Babylon.
