On our third and last day of THE CHIC TRIP, you couldn’t catch us with “rise and shine”, because when you have to wake up at 5am in the morning, you really can’t talk about shining. But after a few splashes of cold water, we all had completely awoken from our dreams about luxury handbags, shoes and clothing, because today, this would all become reality: we were heading to Bicester Village near London! Yes, you read correctly – THE CHIC TRIP goes international!
One last time, we jumped into our shuttles and drove to the airport. At 9.15am, our Lufthansa plane left Munich towards London with our CHIC TRIP winners enjoying a special treatment in Business Class. Our fashionistas used the time on board to take another last look at the Village map to plan the perfect route through the village – a shopping spree like this sure has to be planned to get the most out of it! At London Heathrow, a bus collected us and drove us directly to Bicester Village where the village management was already waiting in the CHIC Lounge to welcome us.
One of the many special things I loved about Bicester Village is the British Designer’s Collective – here, young, talented and rather unknown designers get the chance to sell their designs to a large target group. As Bicester Village is the number one shopping “centre” when it comes to revenue per square meter, this really is an exciting opportunity for the designers to spread their fashion items and be recogonized internationally. I really appreciate how supportive Bicester Village is for these young talents!
Bicester Village is really shopper’s paradise with a lot of great brands, so that we all were so excited to start exploring the village and keep on filling our shopping bags and I am sure that all credit cards were burning – not only mine! Fashionista’s Love!
