Special Christmas Shopping Event at Female Founders
A very special Christmas shopping event
Female Founders Present will showcase 50 female-founded small businesses, including Morpho + Luna
On 9 and 10 December, you’ll have the chance to pick up an original and unique Christmas gift while supporting a leading women’s charity.
Celebrating the talents of some of the capital’s most inspirational women, Female Founders Present, which is being held at Eccleston Yards, Belgravia, will feature independent businesses from the worlds of fashion, jewellery, art and homeware, all of whom have one thing in common – they were founded by women.
Female Founders Present is the brainchild of Phoebe Gormley, the founder of Gormley & Gamble, Savile Row’s first women-only tailor. Frustrated with the ‘old boys’ club’ of traditional tailoring, she has put together an empowering, not-for-profit collective of creative and talented women for this inaugural event.
And, in recognition of the fact that many women don’t have the same opportunities as this group of entrepreneurs do, the money raised by the event will go to Women for Women International. Visitors will be asked to make a £5 donation on the door, and there will also be a raffle featuring covetable prizes donated by exhibitors.
Founded in 1993, Women for Women International helps women who have survived the devastating circumstances of war, enabling them to rebuild their lives and look towards a positive future. To date, the organisation has helped more than 462,000 women across eight countries, including Nigeria, Colombia, Kosovo and Afghanistan. Some of the money funds a micro-loan project that gives these women the opportunity to start their own small businesses.
Morpho + Luna is delighted to be supporting this worthwhile cause, and will be exhibiting a range of garments, from silk pyjamas to cashmere robes – perfect for Christmas gifting. Joining Morpho + Luna will be a host of female-founded businesses, including hand-thrown pottery by Hannah Bould, jewellery crafted from salvaged gold by Lylies, luxury tableware by Sasha Tugolukova, and Italian handmade silk scarves and pocket squares by Alexandra Foster.
Among the other brands at the event will be award-winning chocolate company Rococo, made-to-measure eyewear by SohoBespoke, custom-made shoes by Faber Novella, and abstract wall art by mother-and-daughter team AttikoArt.
The Female Founders Present Christmas shopping weekend takes place on 9 December (from 10am to 6pm) and 10 December (from 11am to 6pm), at Eccleston Yards, Belgravia SW1W 9NF. For more information and to reserve tickets, visit femalefounderspresent.com
