The Wolf and the Badger

The Wolf and the Badger

No, it's not an Animals of Farthing Wood live action re-enactment or a woodland sartorial tribute site.  Wolf & Badger has a rather more meaningful purpose that will be fully unleashed in November.  It WILL be a concept store in Notting Hill (this growing West-ward shift does mean I'll have to suffer the heat of the Central line) that is out to showcase the British talent across all design disciplines; fashion, accessories, jewellery, ceramics and product design. 

Basically independent designers will be able to rent a space in the store for as little as ¬£35 per week that will include an allocated space in-store, an e-commerce page, marketing and PR as well as all those itty bitty things involved in retail.  It's basically the easy route to an own label/business start-up. 

There's not much to see right now other than the very cute visuals on the website but applications are now open for creatives with their own ranges etc and I have a feeling that there will be a highly rigorous selection process so that this incredibly generous start-up offer isn't just given to anybody.  I'll be round that "neck of the woods" come November to see what baby wolves and badgers they have unleashed onto their shopfloor…

    Looks amazing. Had a good laugh when I saw the elk on the bicycle.

    That’s a really awesome idea for up and coming designers to have an opportunity to show off their designs. It’s not easy to find the money to set up a stone and mortar store and the PR would also be helpful.

    Just further proof that not everything is going the way of the internet. First we have Etsy THEN we have Wolf and Badger. It’s like the anti-technological revolution. Now, if only I could make it over to London…

    Ok, totally unrelated to this post but I thought maybe you would see it quicker here…but if I ran into you selling clothes in the street I would have bought everything on the spot. At least anything black, or pink : P
