Visitors to the central London store will also be able to enjoy Carnaby’s Christmas light installation in partnership with Choose Love, featuring a series of pink neon lightboxes filled with positive messages of love and unity.
Dawn O’Porter, Choose Love co-founder says, ‘”When I co-Founded Choose Love, just over 5 years ago, I never dreamt that we would be working in 15 countries across the globe, funding over 120 incredible, effective, needs-led organisations supporting refugees and opening a shop on iconic Carnaby Street. Let alone that Carnaby street would be emblazoned in pink sparkles and lights with our slogan and message to the world, Choose Love. It’s an honour and a dream and will help us do what it takes this winter to respond to the vast needs that we are seeing on the ground as a result of the already freezing cold temperatures and the effects of the pandemic.”
