NU BLVCK Launch Party
Launching at the Merchant City Festival
At Glasgow’s Merchant City Festival, running until July 30th -August 7th, you’ll find an incredible showcase of local talent. And on Tuesday 2nd August, Becca Flory and Andrew Vincent will launch NU BLVCK, an innovative fashion accessories brand.
Working with emerging fashion designers
Becca and Andrew work with emerging fashion designers and artisan makers to create beautiful, exclusively designed capsule collections of fashion accessories. Each piece is produced in limited numbers and customers hear the stories of all involved in designing and making their limited edition product.
Showcasing Scottish Design Talent
The launch event will showcase emerging Scottish designer Ruth Williams, winner of the inaugural NU BLVCK design competition and a cash prize of £2,000. In addition, over the past few months Ruth has worked closely with NU BLVCK’s chosen artisans, making real her dream of taking her designs to market.
“…our event is a celebration. A celebration of the launch of our brand, the creative and design community in Scotland, of our designer Ruth and of the artisans who handmade our beautiful, high quality fashion accessories.”
Pop-Up Dining & Isle of Harris Gin
“…we’re delighted to be working with Section-33 and Isle of Harris Distillers Ltd. Two great Scottish brands that like ours, are really going places…we all share the same values and belief that business is not only about making money but creating communities of people who want to change the world and challenge the status quo.”
As well as enjoying fantastic complimentary food and drink, guests will have exclusive access to early and pre-order products from the next big label to come out of Scotland. On the night, Becca and Andrew are launching a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to help fund the development of the e-commerce platform and future curated collections of fashion accessories.
