Winter Fashion Event at Canary Wharf

Fashion shows, exclusive offers, live entertainment, pop-up boutiques and much more!

On Thursday 27 November, the Winter Fashion event comes to Canary Wharf, with fashion shows in Canada Place and Jubilee Place showcasing the latest winter collections and style essentials from stores within Canary Wharf. The programme of in-mall entertainment will include promotions, live music, product sampling and exclusive store discounts of up to 25% in many of Canary Wharf’s leading fashion and accessories stores.

It will be a fantastic opportunity to get your Christmas shopping done or to pick up that all-important festive party outfit, with exclusive promotions of up to 25% off from some of Canary Wharf’s most popular retailers, including Aspinal of London, Banana Republic, Emmett London, Gant, Hackett, Jaeger, Karen Millen, Orlebar Brown and Whistles. The arrival of a brand new Paul Smith to Cabot Place adds another outlet to help you find that menswear must-have. This exclusive one day fashion event provides the perfect opportunity for Christmas shoppers to find the must-have gift for a price that’s worth talking about and fashionistas can get their seasonal fix of stylish winter wears and glitzy party essentials.

For a well-deserved break, shoppers can head to Jubilee Place mall where One Canada Square Restaurant and Bar will be hosting two pop-up bars and lounges offering samples of bucks fizz or Prosecco and delicious mini mince pies. With their hot chocolate samples, Whittard of Chelsea will be providing the ultimate winter warmer in Cabot Place, and Godiva’s dipping station is going to pop up in Canada Place mall, tempting passers-by to indulge in chocolate covered strawberries. Charbonnel et Walker will also have a pop-up in Cabot Place at which chocolate-lovers can indulge by sampling their Christmas and signature gift collections.

Entertainment within the malls will come from live musicians who are going to be performing throughout the day, offering a diversion for those who find themselves all shopped out. The talented singing trio Sugar Sisters will be performing throughout the day, as well as singer/guitarist Jackie D Williams and two other amazing performers.

To round off a perfect winter’s day, continue the shopping experience at the Canary Wharf Christmas Market in Montgomery Square, and sample some delicious festive food and wander the artisanal stalls. Alternatively, shoppers can get their skates on and have a go at whizzing round Ice Rink Canary Wharf, situated at Canada Square Park. For those who prefer life out of the fast lane, there is an array of restaurants available throughout Canary Wharf, including ROKA, Boisdale of Canary Wharf, Iberica Canary Wharf and One Canada Square Restaurant and Bar just around the corner.

With hundreds of shops and special deals, entertainment, drinks and dining options, Canary Wharf’s Winter Fashion event is the only place for Christmas shopping this year.
