Christmas shopping, all for a good cause 

It’s officially the giving season, but if you want to make your Christmas gift go a little further this year, we’ve got just the thing: homeless charity Crisis is returning to Savile Row for an unmissable fashion pop-up. Read on for the rundown.

Crisis Returns To Savile Row For A Designer Pop-Up

Want to get stuck into your Christmas shopping? Returning to Savile Row for its fourth year, Charity fundraiser ‘Pop-Up Crisis’ promises an unmissable selection of womenswear, menswear, gifts and accessories. 

Running from 4 to 14 December, the pop-up is hosted by development firm Henigman at the decommissioned West End Central police station at 27 Savile Row. All proceeds will go to Crisis, the national charity for people experiencing homelessness across Great Britain.

So what’s on offer? The pop-up will encompass a calendar of Christmas events, but perhaps the most exciting is ‘shop their wardrobe’, an exclusive chance to shop items personally donated by celebrity friends of Crisis. From Kate Moss and Stormzy to David Gandy and Aisling Bea, plenty of big names have contributed pieces to the fundraiser, so you’ll be sure to find some showstoppers.

If you don’t nab any of these preloved items, you can still get your hands on a dazzling array of past-season designer stock, imperfect pieces and seasonal sample collections – not to mention brand new designer wares. Items have previously been donated by brands such as Burberry, Erdem, Hackett, Jimmy Choo, Vivienne Westwood and Tods.

Meanwhile, other events include a late-night shopping evening with drinks and live music; an annual raffle boasting the most luxurious of the donated pieces; and wreath-making workshops hosted by The Glasshouse, a social enterprise offering horticultural training to women in UK prisons. 

With nearly a quarter of a million households across England now experiencing the most severe forms of homelessness, the work that Crisis carries out has never been more vital. The charity helps thousands of homeless people every year by providing education and training alongside support with housing, employment and health and wellbeing. 

Pop-Up Crisis will run from Monday 4 to Thursday 14 December at 27 Savile Row, London, W1S 2EX.

Alternatively, donations can be sent directly to Paula Floyd at Crisis, Unit 4 Segro Park, 160 Bidder Street E16 4ES (Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm).
