Hoe Street Walthamstow Pop-Up Store

Posted by Ikenna Nwimo on

Yet another great day of forward progress for Blaque Falcon, as we launched our temporary first-ever Pop-Up Store in Hoe Street Central, Walthamstow.

The store was of course headed by my perennial start-up Clothing and Publishing brand, but was also complimented with other independent brands such as, Bold Stitch Handmade; a bespoke fashion brand of African attire, all handmade and printed for Men, Women and Children. Myself, Olivia Cookson (IG: @oliviacookson_) star of the Blaque Falcon Season One shoot and her sister Lucy Cookson (IG: @lucycooksonuno) even managed to model some of the garments for the fashion line as well, so be on the lookout for those shots.

This was all complimented by the ‘Europe from Space’ range of artwork by ink and bleach graphic artist, Laura Melissa Williams. Specifically for the occasion she managed to produce a ‘Falcon Moon’ piece, showing the Blaque Falcon flying around the midnight moon. Aesthetically pleasing to say the least!

The vastly growing bakery and catering service, Cake Bar catered for the whole Pop-Up, which proved to be the icing on the cake of the occasion (pun intended). Guests were served with a prestigious array of finger foods and other assortments but were graced with a Blaque Falcon branded cake.

The main intention of occupying the whole space, was yet another chance to grow the brand and promote the quality of my first line of Clothing and the release of my debut novel Drax. I also received a whole new set of ideas for new Children line, so watch this space…

A massive thank you to all those who attended, onwards and upwards!
