BOXPARK Shoreditch is a retail revolution – the world’s first pop-up mall. Based in the heart of East London, for the next five years. BOXPARK strips and refits shipping containers to create unique, low cost, low risk, ‘box shops’. Put them together with a unique mix of international fashion and lifestyle brands, galleries and cafés and you’ve got the world’s first ‘pop-up’ mall – so named because its basic building blocks are inherently movable: they can, and will, literally pop up anywhere in the world!
There’s been such an entrepreneurial buzz brewing over the past few years, that if you wanted to do something, now would be the perfect time. Soon after graduating from fashion school, Thomas Codd set out to start his own meanswear clothing label, Thomas Codd London.
Residing in Winchmore Hill, 24-year-old designer Thomas Codd is one of the hottest new names in punk fashion. His menswear brand draws its influences from traditional British brands and subcultures ranging from Punk, Skinheads, Teddy Boy and even Mod.
He recently had a show at The Live Room in Palmers Green that took place in May this year that drew unanimous acclaim from critics and fellow designers alike. To add to his success, Thomas has also agreed to a licensing deal with The Men’s Room fashion boutique, meaning that his ambition to creating a prominent menswear label is imminent.
