Young fashion brand Bench is to open a concept store in Manchester’s Northern Quarter next week, which will showcase work from talented young people.
The store, which opens on September 20, will tie in with Bench’s Self Made campaign, which champions young innovative people from jewellery designers to bike builders.
The campaign offers applicants the opportunity to showcase and further their skills with funding and exposure through Bench branding, the website and social media channels.
The store will play host to an exhibition demonstrating work from the Self Made participants. Exclusive Bench product, limited edition lines and collaborations will also feature in the store.
The brand said it plans to roll out the concept to further shop-in-shops.
