Bold Souls - Santa, Baby!
Let’s face it, the countdown to Christmas has already begun. Over the past few years, craft fairs and Christmas pop up shops have become part of the seasonal tradition, appearing all over the country. Bold Souls, however, deserves a special spot in your holidays diary, both for the quality of the items and the fact it strongly encourages shoppers to have fun.
Fashion designers, jewellers, milliners and fashion illustrators will display upcycled, vintage and bespoke items, whilst being on hand to chat with shoppers and answer their questions. The event’s creators have also promised make up artists, nail technicians and free hair styling (courtesy of Rainbow Room International), making the day a whole lot more entertaining than the usual Christmas crowd elbowing on Buchanan/Princes Street. Finally, there will be an opportunity to witness the behind-the-scenes of a live fashion shoot or get involved in a clothes swap ‘Shop it Swap it’ so just don’t forget to bring your unwanted clothes along.
Beginning in July 2010, Bold Souls is the fashionable offspring of Jonathan Pryce (the photographer behind the street-style blog LesGarconsdeGlasgow) and Silvia Pellegrino (designer of fashion brand Chouchou). A bit over a year later, they have gathered a strong following, with the pop up shops even dubbed the city’s fastest growing fashion event.
