New York comes to London

New York comes to London

How do you fancy a slice of the Big Apple? New York style is set to cruise through Carnaby during the month of October. Londoners will get a very stylish treat as the Newburgh Quarter in Carnaby will host 12 of the Lower East Side’s hottest boutiques. There will be free events throughout the whole month of October to celebrate the Wish You Were Here project. First, the Launch Event on the 3rd, starting at 11am where you can nab free bagels and blueberry muffins.

On Thursday, October 8th, from 5-9pm the pop-up shops will be offering a 20% discount and goodie bags for select shoppers, not to mention live entertainment from Lower East Side (LES) DJ’s. Fast forward to Sunday, October 18th for a New York style Block Party with a guerrilla catwalk show.  And closing the festivities, a Halloween party will be held on Saturday October 31st, with prizes for the best costumes and a pumpkin carving contest.

And keep your eye out for the New York yellow taxi, if you spot it on Saturday hail it down and just quote “Newburgh” to get yourself a free ride to London’s hub of creativity, the Newburgh Quarter. All participating designers are completely new to London and will be showcasing in two pop-up shops located at 3 Lowndes Court and 8 Newburgh Street.

Fancy getting some authentic New York food? You can also visit the Big Apple food market in Foubert’s Place just off Carnaby Street between 1-6pm on the launch day. Bag yourself some delicious chocolate brownies & truffles, juicy ribs, hot dogs, traditional NY pizza, cream cheese bagels, apple cider and cotton candy.
