The next chapter in fashion retail

The next chapter in fashion retail

STORY started as a startup fashion retail store and has now become a permanent pop-up shop: same location, but new retail layout every 4-6 weeks.  Each month is a new “chapter”, such as COLOR, with an art-gallery installation feel, the point of view of a fashion magazine, and sells items like a small boutique. 

Why it matters

The retail landscape is in flux due to a tension between bricks-and-mortar  and online stores, and retail spaces need to become more than just a transaction-based  consumer experience.  Many stores will rotate merchandise to keep it fresh, but STORY has tapped into a retail experience that transcends the clothing for sale.  They sell a fashion trend, not just articles of clothing and accessories, that is gone as quickly as it comes in.  Can this transcend fashion retail and become a viable retail model to save bricks-and-mortar?  How can you tell a new story through the store experience with your product or service?

Bus stops are to be transformed into works of art in a London-wide design project. Digital artist Alfie Dennen has designed a computer programme to create images for the tops of bus shelters after being inspired by attempts to beautify the roofs on his local route. Dennen says he wants to provide a canvas to allow Londoners and communities to tell their stories to thousands of passengers every day.
