London Summer of ’64 at Whiteleys Shopping Mall on 30th – 31st August
Whiteleys Shopping Mall, in Bayswater, will be paying homage to the London summer of ‘64 with a swinging sixties weekend filled with Twiggy inspired makeup, Jean Shrimpton fashion and a Beatles soundtrack that defined the decade. From the beauty boudoir to the retro Vespa makeup booth to our very own iconic 1960’s Mini Cooper, shoppers of all ages will be able to immerse themselves in a time when London was regarded as the world capital of cool.
Described as the swinging city in 1966 by Time Magazine, Whiteleys plan to give teenagers a little taster of the decade and let the older folk come over nostalgic for one weekend only. If that’s not enough, shoppers will have the opportunity to pick up the telephone and dial into the past on an authentic 1960s telephone, as well brushing up on the Fly, the Penguin, the Monkey, the Swim and the Funky Chicken (dance moves), whilst listening to famous songs in two egg chair music booths.
Whiteleys offer an eclectic mix of retailers for shoppers to do some much needed retail therapy over the weekend, but retailers and visitors a like will be in awe and seeking inspiration from the summer of ‘64 fashion show. The shows will be happening twice a day on Saturday and Sunday and you can bet on Whiteleys giving the shows their very own contemporary twist.
“Relive a summer in 1960s style at Whiteleys this August”.
The Summer of ‘64 will take place on August 30th and 31ST from 11am until to 5pm. Look out for a number of special offers at selected retailers including YO! Sushi, Starbucks, Pizza Express and many more.
