Like a Fairytale

Feast your eyes on these spectacular windows from Le Bon Marche created by Sofia Coppola.

The film director has lent her cinematic vision to the design of 10 fantasy windows at the iconic 
French department store. 

Giant hearts, neon balloons and cherry blossoms share the spotlight with a playful young deer until 26 October. 

Which one is your favourite?

Are you our next Rising Star?

Judged by a panel of industry experts, Bubble Rising Star awards the best debuting launch brand at the show and looks for innovation, quality, originality and commercial appeal. As well as the increased exposure all finalists receive, the winning brand is given a free stand for the following show, guaranteeing a second season in front of some of the best buyers in the industry.

Sonia Rocha, Sales Manager, Wolf & Rita, last season’s winner (formerly Milk & Rock)
“We have made so many new contacts at Bubble and we are thrilled that we already have a stand to come back to in January as it has been a great experience for us and we never expected to achieve so much out of our first show of the season.”

Sarah Dyer, founder, Archie’s Boutique, Rising Star Judge June 2013
“It was a unanimous decision in the end but the variety on offer amongst the finalists was really great and I was so pleased to see several British manufacturers in the line-up as this is something I am championing.”

Nicky Lumb, director, Michiko and Me, Rising Star Finalist
“Having been nominated for the Rising Star award we have had a huge amount of interest, particularly in our four year dress so it has been a fantastic good platform for us. I am also really pleased with my stand location in Nest. It’s great to exhibit and be associated with so many innovative and homegrown brands."

Natalie Collier, founder and creator of Project Jelly, Rising Star Finalist
“Bubble is so important for an emerging brand like ourselves, it has given me the opportunity to turn a concept into a tangible brand and I am coming away from the show with so many new collaborations and stock commitments.”
