Amber Truman and Mananchaya Wattanachayakul from Browns commented, “The Saatchi Gallery is a beautiful space and there is a really good mix of contemporary, casual and resort wear designers. It’s also good to see so many international designers, not just the UK. We have seen wonderful collections curated beautifully across Scoop.”
Pamela Shiffer from Pamela Shiffer, London said, “What a beautiful show! Personally I think it’s been my favourite to date because we picked up three new brands and there are a lot more we are thinking about. This is exactly the show we need in the UK, a mix of price points and beautifully curated. Well done to the team!”
Ailsa Feroze from Fabric Boutique, London said, “It’s such a pleasure to visit Scoop. Plenty of space to get around, beautiful flowers everywhere and wonderful brands to explore!”
Located at the Saatchi Gallery, Chelsea from 29th – 31st January, the show offered an exclusive edit of over 250 contemporary womenswear, menswear, accessory and lifestyle collections expertly curated by the show’s Creative Director and Founder, Karen Radley.
Among the impressive line-up of designers at Scoop were an innovative collection of gender-neutral designers presenting a style of clothing which is growing in popularity with retailers. Designers included Dzenda, Dedicated and Knowledge Cotton. Dzenda’s first collection reflects a modern and chic identity that elevates the human body with an essence of luxury and removes borders and boundaries in gender title. Ali Kaptan, Creative Director from Dzenda commented, “Gender neutral is a small but growing sector and it has been fantastic to be showcased alongside other brands in this market. We chose Scoop to launch our collection and the show has been a great success for us!”
Also popular with retailers were brands that appealed to a younger demographic. Romantic, fanciful and whimsical the Amy Jane London collection of stunning dresses looked beautiful against the gallery back drop. Amy Jane from Amy Jane London said, “We were drawn to showing at Scoop because of its boutique style and high-end reputation. It has certainly lived up to expectations, the gallery and designers showcased here are beautiful. It has been a very successful few days for us with a great response from buyers and the other brands we’ve met – It is by far the best show we have been to!”
Sally Ann George at Aspiga, “It is fantastic to be back at The Saatchi Gallery, it is a wonderful venue for the show. The event is incredibly well organised and we have been very well looked after. A definite success!”
Jenny Adagio from Onjenu,“We are returning to Scoop this season and the show has been very busy for us. We have received great feedback from existing and new customers and have achieved fantastic orders. Everyone you speak to loves Scoop!”

It has been consistently busy with attendance from great retailers. We’ve been very successful here and made great orders from a mix of existing and new customers.”
