55DSL Christmas Shopping Evening
Launching on the Grazia magazine shopping evening where Carnaby Street goes wild and lets people collect special gifts, money off and even some type of drink/food depending on what the retailer is offering, 55DSL is up to its usual tricks! Get to the store on the corner of Newburgh Street and you could be in for a freebie worth the walk.
Madcap Matt Sewell and gigantic Jonny Fu (A.K.A. Ron Jonzo, Ronzo) will be creating hand illustrated Christmas Cards so as well as taking home the latest from 55DSL you can have your own unique piece of artwork, a perfect gift for friends and families, but to be honest they will be so good you might just want to send one to yourself.
Music will be provided by DJ NickName and shoppers will be re-fuelled with a festive Jagermeister bar to help keep them in a suspended state of shopping happiness. 55DSL also have somegreat surprises up their sleeves as well… Really, you won’t be disappointed - *crosses heart and hopes to die*
Most people will know Matt as the artist renowned for drawing an uber-cute world of animals and girls in pastel palettes and for the festive period 55DSL have commissioned a life size version of his work of a polar bear. The 6ft creature will be camping outside the store complete with a head sized hole for shoppers to stick their faces through and have their photo taken as a real-life piece of art and experience being hugged by a polar bear!
Join them for art, shopping, booze and music (but not necessarily in that order!)
Date: Thursday 29th November
Location: 55DSL Store, Newburgh St. London
