Tomorrow we are hosting an exclusive event at Fenwick New Bond Street, and so we thought we’d find out a bit more about how one of London’s most iconic stores came to be.
The Fenwick story started after Fred Fenwick took a trip to Paris where he was inspired by the revolutionary Le Bon Marché department store. On his return to England, he embraced the Parisian concept of combining different speciality goods under one roof and Fenwick was born.
Determined to expand, the Fenwicks opened their second store in 1891 on New Bond Street, London. The new store offered luxury fashion, bespoke tailoring and accessories for women.
Today, the white façade of the New Bond Street store is one of Bond Street’s landmark buildings, and its buy includes collections from well-known and upcoming designers.
Join us in the New Bond Street store tomorrow for our exclusive shopping event.
