Shoreditch Design Triangle
If you need a pause from typical fashion boutique shopping and you are in London between 16-24 September (preety soon!) and at the same time you appreciate designer clothes, outstanding objects and creative ideas, we have a suggestion for you. Shoreditch Design Festival held in London/Shoreditch from 16 till 24 September is a must-see for all independent shoppers. So if you are around, go and shop there and you will not be disappointed.
Feel convinced? Still not really?
Well, you can read more on their website.
The Shoreditch Design Triangle is a cultural event that celebrates the creative industry in East London. It was created to collaborate on the promotion of designers’ activities.
Festival blends together product launches, exhibitions, installations, workshops, talks, tours and culinary delights – the event gives visitors the opportunity to spend the day wandering around the East End on foot and still not see everything there is to see.
And the range is huge – design led furniture, accessories, lighting, ceramics, fashion, jewellery, bags, tableware, cookware, books, prints, flowers, textiles, bicycles, stationery and even chocolate. There are also leading architecture projects, mixed media events and video installations.
So if you are a creative creature, looking for a mixture of art and design, you surely should visit Shoreditch. It will be an excellent opportunity to do the shopping that is far away from high street fashion and in fact fashion is just a tiny bit of the event at all.
But if you are in search for fashion elements of the event, these are our top ones during the Shoreditch Design Triangle. You can either go to the ones that we have recommend as „worth attending“ or check their programme for more to see.
Kestin Hare is a British menswear brand produced by a designer who gets what works and is inspired by what men want for everyday life. He established his eponymous brand in late 2014. He has got 15 years of experience in quality UK manufacturing and craftsmanship, retaining a contemporary aesthetic, blended with unique fabric sourcing, for which he has become known.
In July of 2015 Hare opened his London flagship store and showroom in the vibrant Shoreditch. Men will love the shop as it offers really classy-looking staff for those men who prefer elegant extravagancy. We have fallen in love with their fashion design and their shops as well. They have got a nice boutique in Edinburgh too, if this city is on your travel map.
And the Japanese love their style too, so you can also buy their stuff in Tokyo.

Founded in East London in 2015, ELWIN’s ethos is that clothes should be made to last, both in terms of design and quality. It is a typical British design so you will love it if you like a bit traditional, meaning a bit conservative, British fashion style.

Above all, however, the Shoreditch Design Triangle is an event for interior designers, artists, house accessories‘ manufacturers, home ware lovers, people of art, who take pride in their craftsmanship and creativity.
