Today I am so very excited to reveal one of the biggest collaborations my Etsy store has been a part of yet! A few months ago, Topshop contacted me to discuss a very special event they were planning to hold in celebration of Spring. Topshop often invites local independent businesses in to collaborate together for an in-store pop-up stall. With past pop-ups including Mr Lincoln florists, Notemaker stationery, Ricketts Point ice-cream and Miss Fox’s nail art, I couldn’t be more honoured when Topshop contacted me to ask if I was interested in creating a unique new collection of headpieces for a K is for Kani pop-up!
After sending through some designs, the UK office settled on a special collection of seven different styles. These include some never-seen before festival crowns, as well as some of my best-seller statement oversize rose crowns as well. And then, possibly my biggest challenge yet, I spent the last eight weeks making hundreds of floral crowns. In the end, my studio looked like it had been showered with flowers, with roses covering every flat surface in the room. This probably explains my slightly less frequent blogging over the last couple of months, but I’m sure this pop-up stall will make up for it! :)
The pop-up stall will be launching tonight at the Topshop Topman & Grazia’s ‘Step into Spring’ event, hosted at Topshop Chapel Street store in Melbourne, where VIP guests will also be having a private preview of the new Topshop racewear collection. As well as this, we’ll be hearing from Amy Molloy, Editor of Grazia Australia, who will talk all things trending this Spring. For this night of style and shopping, all purchases $100 or more will be able to redeem a complimentary floral crown. There will be something for everyone – big roses, small roses, headbands, hair wreaths, asymmetrical headpieces and more!
For those who aren’t coming to the VIP evening, this offer will also be available this weekend (13, 14 Oct) at Topshop Chapel St. All you need to do is visit my pthe pop-up stall with your token to redeem :) And with Spring and the races just around the corner, they are the perfect accessory to complete your look!
For those who are coming this evening, my flowers and I look forward to seeing you there! And for those who aren’t in Melbourne, you can visit my flowers online @ http://kisforkani.etsy.com
