The Secret Christmas Grotto

Best of British emerging brands curated by the TP London team descended on Percy Street for a Christmas grotto.

Organised in association with #GivingTuesday and Society of Young Philanthropists, the Secret Christmas Grotto was more than just a pop-up.  The showcase of nineteen British brands – ranging from jewellery, mens fashion and art – demonstrated that there are realistic, workable ways of integrating charity into young businesses and emerging fashion labels. 10% of all sale profits were donated by each exhibitor to a charity of their choice, with charities such as Sara Charlton Foundation, Snow Leopard Trust, Crisis at Christmas and Syrian Supper Club benefiting from the fair.

A series of workshop discussion panels also ran alongside the pop-up event, raising awareness of the important partnership between fashion and philanthropy, but also exploring the nature of giving and aid during the festive season.

TP London and the Christmas Grotto exhibitors wish to thank Fever-Tree, Sipsmith, Cazenove Capital Management, Mustard Catering, Collyer Bristow, Elite Security, Source Lifestyle and Instant Print W1 for their kind support and sponsorship of the fair.
