After eight successful editions in Amsterdam, New York, and Paris, PAUSE Conscious Pop-Up is coming to London this year bigger and better! The founders Leticia Bordoni and Romina Pirani have an inspiring theme in store for all Londoners – “Be you, be conscious, be here now.” According to Leticia Bordoni, “the theme is based on the necessity of bringing consciousness to the fashion industry. Something as beautiful as fashion also has a dark side, that’s why we need to rethink our consumption patterns now.”
PAUSE Conscious Pop-Up is coming to London for its successive 9th edition during the London Fashion Week.
Freemason’s Hall, an iconic destination in Covent Garden with the incredible history and architecture, will be the host.
This long-awaited is from September 13th to the 22nd but the inauguration will kick-off on Friday, 12th of September at 6 PM in Londoner style – with drinks, food, music, arts, talks, and above all else, fashion!
