The Pop-Up Crisis event, a unique fusion of high-end fashion and charitable purpose, returns for its fourth year to London’s prestigious Savile Row. From December 5th to 14th, this event transforms a former police station into a hub of philanthropic activity. Spearheaded by Anda Rowland of renowned tailors Anderson & Sheppard and esteemed fashion editor Tom Stubbs, this event channels the allure of luxury fashion into a powerful force for good.
This year’s event, hosted by developer Henigman, promises an exceptional range of offerings. Brand new and past-season designer pieces, alongside unique samples and slightly imperfect items, are generously donated by illustrious brands like Vivienne Westwood, Wales Bonner, Pringle of Scotland, and many others, representing the pinnacle of fashion excellence.
The event not only showcases fashion but also features a diverse array of activities. A highlight includes a ‘shop their wardrobe’ segment, offering items donated by celebrities like Kate Moss and David Gandy. Additionally, there are wreath-making workshops and a late-night shopping event, culminating in a raffle with enviable prizes. These events, combined with the high-profile celebrity involvement, significantly boost the fundraising potential and public engagement.
The 2024 Creative Retail Awards are open for entries.
The Creative Retail Awards are much more than a mere accolade; they represent the pinnacle of achievement in the retail industry. Garnering a nomination or winning one of these awards is a testament to innovation, excellence, and leadership.
Crisis, the beneficiary of this event, is a national charity dedicated to helping individuals experiencing homelessness across Great Britain. The funds raised play a crucial role in supporting the charity’s vital work in education, housing, employment, and health and wellbeing for those in need.

This year, the team aspires to surpass previous fundraising records, aiming for a £125,000 target. Notably, to maximize the contributions, the staffing of the event is entirely voluntary, and operational costs are minimized. The commitment of volunteers and the generosity of donors are instrumental in achieving this ambitious goal.
For those wishing to contribute, donations are welcome at the Crisis headquarters on Bidder Street or via the event’s website. This opportunity for public involvement extends beyond mere financial contributions, with options for sponsorship and volunteering also available.
