Fancy opening a shop on Oxford Street?

28 May 2021

Calling all entrepreneurs, designers and artists! Have you recently started your own business online but never had the chance to sell your product or services in a shop? Or are you an artist or designer with fresh ideas and cool artwork that you want to exhibit but can’t find the right space? This could be your chance!

Over the summer, Oxford Street will be working with Westminster City Council to offer start-ups and artists a prime spot on Oxford Street where they can showcase their talent free of charge. We’ve got ten empty pop-ups ready and waiting for exciting brands, artists and designers to come in and help us reimagine what the future of Oxford Street could be like.

We’re looking for pioneering businesses and trailblazers that can create one of the following:

  • Fashion Laboratories: we’re looking for the new generation of designers that are doing fashion differently and more sustainably
  • Dreamscapes: we want to create spaces that merge shopping and art to show off work by artists and brands under one roof
  • Mixed Reality Spaces: we are looking to create immersive installations that take visitors into an alternative realm with innovative technology or art
  • Wellness spaces: we’re after products or services that help improve people’s physical and mental health

If you think you’re the perfect candidate for one of these, all you have to do is fill out the application form on Westminster City Council’s website. Entries close on 13th June 2021. The 10 lucky applicants will receive a grant of up to £5,000 to help fit out their shop or install their work in the space.

Good luck and we can’t wait to see you on Oxford Street!
