This week at Norwood (16 August 2019)

20 August 2019

Shopping, swapping and sustainable fashion

Thursday 15 August was Ladies Night at our Golders Green Boutique. It was a fantastic sustainable shopping event with support from fashion brand Little Mistress. The evening started with an exclusive swap-shop event where sustainable fashion bloggers attended and brought donations. There was then a Question and Answer session with blogger and model Amy Neville. Little Mistress captured this on film and have created a video to promote the collaboration between Norwood and themselves.

The evening was a great success with prosecco, cup cakes and all the gorgeous ladies wear you can imagine – from designer to vintage, brand new stock from high street brands such as Topshop and Miss Selfridge, and splendid shoes and accessories. Inspired by the success of the evening, Norwood is already thinking about a party season event at the Barkingside store before the year is out.
