Ethical Brand Directory (EBD) has secured a partnership with Spirit of Christmas and will be exhibiting a selection of responsibly produced clothing, accessories, and gifts in a high-end ’boutique-style’ pop-up shop with styling and personal shopping services, included.
I am delighted to have been able to secure this opportunity for our EBD family and we look forward to sharing the festive spirit with other traders at the fair. Ethical Brand Directory will also be responsible for an ‘Ethical & Sustainable Edit’ that will highlight gift ideas from the boutique in an engaging and informative display – which will be designed to draw visitors in, for them to think about gift-giving in a new way. As the chief curator and stylist at EBD – I am thoroughly looking forward to this and getting creative!
The Spirit of Christmas takes place between the 4th – 10th of November at the London Olympia and attracts over 55,000 people across the 7-days. This is one of the largest shopping events of the year and we are extremely pleased to be representing independent ethical and sustainable brands in our EBD Pop-Up.
Spirit of Christmas has a partnership with House & Garden which ensures that we will be in front of high-net-worth individuals from the most affluent areas of London and the Home Counties. The Spirit of Christmas Fair will also feature across a variety of Condé Nast titles including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour and Tatler. This is great news for our members of the Ethical Brand Directory!
