About this event
Creative comms and PR agency, PrettyGreen, alongside sister production agency The Producers have partnered with creative strategy agency Neverland to launch Foxy Bingo’s Foxy Laundrette – the UK’s first celebrity swap shop.
Here, Foxy Bingo is calling on Brits to “get their Fox On” and head to the UK’s first Northern celebrity swap shop in Hull this weekend, following research that reveals that Northern cities in the UK are at the forefront of fashion trends, cultivating a fun and unique fashion identity that has given rise to renowned northern style icons.
TV’s best loved fashion consultant, Gok Wan, will open the doors to the Foxy Laundrette on Friday 29th September in Hull, where visitors can upcycle or donate old clothes for new ‘Foxy-fied’ looks, including the opportunity to get their hands on inspired looks and pre-loved ‘garms’ from some of the North’s foxiest celebrities including Gok himself, Alison Hammond, Sugababes’ Heidi Range, and reality TV stars Mollie Marsh and Adam Collard.
Guests will get much more than a Foxy refresh, with a mix of fun activities and games on offer, and even an opportunity to bag themselves items of clothing from real northern stars – such as Ricky Hatton, Alison Hammond, Heidi Range and many more. As well as looking good, visitors to the launderette can do good as all items of clothing donated will support a local charity.
The Foxy Laundrette will open Friday 29th (12-8pm) & Saturday 30th (10am-6pm) September. Address: 20-22 Anlaby Rd, Hull HU1 2PA.
