In case you didn’t get along to the Southbank Centre Shop during September, we thought we’d share some pictures with you of the launch evening. During the entire month of September, our REMIX2 project took over the top floor of the Festival Terrace shop, where we introduced new products for the Southbank Centre as well as launching new Mini Moderns lines from our 2014/15 Hinterland Collection, including our fabulous new collaboration with Matt Sewell -‘Feathers’ wallpaper.
In addition to the shop we also and hosted talks, with Lucy from Galapagos, accompanied by 1950s cocktails.
Building on the success of our REMIX project from last September – where we collaborated with designers, who used our patterns as a basis for their projects; this year REMIX 2 focused on designs that we have created in partnership with Southbank Centre over the past few years, ‘Net and Ball’, ‘Concert’ and ‘Festival’, as well as new pattern ‘Sound Curtain’ based on the Edinburgh Weavers 1951 fabric.
In true REMIX fashion we also worked with great designers who produced special edition products for the event. These included, Stumped Studio, London Kills Me, GroupDesign, Galapagos and Rimmington Vian.
The launch evening was a huge success and great fun, with a chance for everyone to meet our REMIX-ERS, accompanied by The Pop Up Choir – who did two appearances during the evening. Matt Sewell was also on hand to sign copies of his best selling books.
Adam Thow, Head of Retail & Buying at Southbank Centre said of the event:
“I am delighted Mini Moderns are ‘coming home’ to Southbank Centre this year and revisiting some of the classic Festival of Britain designs and inspirations on new products and in new colours. They are being given free reign to take over the whole upper level of the store and, for once, I am happy to let the reins go.”
We had such a great time, and we wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who made it such a success – especially Adam and his amazing team at Southbank Centre and also our friends Miss Hope and Mr Greenwood, of Hope and Greenwood – who provided sweeties for the evening too.
The after party was especially enjoyable at Topolski where we could finally relax, and where the Pop Up choir enjoyed a few games of ping pong!
