Bicester opens pop-up with BFC designed by Richard Quinn

The British Fashion Council (BFC) and Bicester Village have collaborated to launch ‘The Creative Spot,’ a pop-up promoting innovative and sustainable British design featuring 18 designers.

Bicester Village and the British Fashion Council have collaborated on ‘The Creative Spot,’ which features designers such as Christopher Kane, Eudon Choi, Mary Katrantzou, Patrick McDowell, Phoebe English, Roksanda and Sophia Webster.

In addition, the pop-up features Alighieri, Completedworks, Mira Mikati, Mother of Pearl, and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, as well as silk scarves by Rejina Pyo, Tata Naka, and Ivana Nohel.

Because the pop-up coincides with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee festivities, Bicester and BFC entrusted Richard Quinn, winner of the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design, with designing the space.

Quinn has given the pop-up a daisy makeover, complete with a floral print and a traditional British Mini. Bucket hats, T-shirts, and scarves with colorful flower designs have been produced exclusively for Bicester Village by the British designer.

“The Queen has always showed a real interest in British fashion,” Quinn said in a statement, “so the Jubilee is a perfect chance to showcase the innovation and ability of a range of British designers.”

We attempted to reproduce the festive spirit of British summers in our store design, giving a touch of brightness and gladness to Bicester Village at this very unique time.”

Caroline Rush, the BFC’s chief executive, explained during the press preview that the pop-up offers designers free premium retail space as well as exposure to the village’s domestic and international audience. Furthermore, according to Rush, 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to the designers, and each brand will have access to Bicester Collection’s business mentorship program, which helps designers build and grow their businesses.

“We are thrilled to partner with Bicester Village on a designer pop-up in cooperation with The Creative Spot once again,” Rush stated. This is a fantastic opportunity to highlight innovative and sustainable brands to a worldwide audience while also commemorating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.”
