BOUF at Piccadilly: Supporting London Designers

The project has been spearheaded by Lucy and Ben Siegle and they have created a stunning pop-up shop in possibly London’s busiest tube station to support local design talent. Customers are invited in to fill their boots, stockings, and bags with all kinds of treats to pop under the tree.

Designers stocked include Sharlala Jewellery, Zoom Rockman (the youngest cartoonist for the Beano comic), Wool and the Gang, Katie Jones and Antoni and Alison.
