New small womenswear label Bug Clothing sets up in a studio space at Old Paradise Yard, launching late September 2015.
Bug has been part of the family for a few years now, previously Front of House at Netil House in London Fields whilst studying Fashion Design at the University of East London. Showing at Graduate Fashion Week June 2014, Bug has since produced a private show at The Dalston Department Store, freelanced, created and worked other jobs, leading her to set up a small label currently functioning on a 'made to order' scale.
We are very proud of this awesome lady: Bug Clothing has now officially found its home at Old Paradise Yard, our littlest tranquil oasis of a hub near Waterloo station. The new label will be launched at the end of September, a small range of womenswear garments will be available online and at local weekend markets.
