Battersea Power Station Presents The ‘Botanical Atelier’ Bringing Floral Flair To Spring Fashion

Battersea Power Station will offer shoppers the opportunity to personalise their spring purchases at the ‘Botanical Atelier’ embroidery pop-up taking place between 4th 6th May 2024 and 9th – 12th

The Botanical Atelier has been designed by British contemporary artist, Claire Luxton, in partnership with MTArt Agency, with embroidery from The Lost Girls and Rosie Brain.

Adding a floral flair to their fashion and homeware purchases from the great mix of British and international brands now open at Battersea Power Station, shoppers will be invited to select from six nature-inspired motifs, free of charge, and walk away with a bespoke piece to add to their spring wardrobe.

The ‘Botanical Atelier’ will sit alongside the immersive ‘Field of Dreams’ art installation also by Claire Luxton in partnership with MTArt Agency, and forms part of the London landmark’s exciting spring/summer season, which includes a special shopping event on 9th May

Battersea Power Station is offering shoppers the opportunity to personalise and add a floral flair to their spring fashion and homeware purchases at its ‘Botanical Atelier’ embroidery pop-up. Designed by British contemporary artist, Claire Luxton, in partnership with MTArt Agency, the pop-up will be located in the London landmark’s Turbine Hall A and run from 4th May 6th May, on the evening of 9th May as part of a special shopping event, and from 10th May – 12th May.

Shoppers visiting the Power Station will be invited to adorn a new purchase from the mix of British and international brands that call Battersea Power Station home, with one of six bespoke, nature-inspired motifs designed by Claire Luxton, and embroiderers, Rosie Brain (4th May – 6th May) and The Lost Girls (evening of 9th May and 10th – 12th May), free-of-charge.

The Botanical Atelier will form a temporary extension to Claire Luxton and MTArt Agency’s breathtaking art installation ‘Field of Dreams’, also on display in Turbine Hill A from Monday 29th April 2024. The floral and botanical inspired artwork is an exploration of the intrinsic connection between nature, mental health, and self-awareness. It encapsulates these themes within its towering 12-metre structure and 33 layers of intricately digitally printed fabric, which seem to both reveal and hide layers of the artwork as it is explored. Working in synergy with Claire Luxton, luxury florist Moyses Stevens, which has a shop and flower school at Battersea Power Station, supplied all the specific botanicals used in both the sculptural installation and the accompanying activations, paying homage to their nearly 150 years of floral craftsmanship history.

The embroidery pop-up will continue the botanical theming, dressed with foliage and plants from Moyses Stevens, scented with Penhaligon’s ‘Halfeti’ fragrance, and accompanied by Claire Luxton’s organic soundscapes. Visitors to the Botanical Atelier may also be tempted to head to Searcys Champagne Bar in Turbine Hall A to try a limited-edition Field of Dreams inspired cocktail created with Claire Luxton that will be added to the bar’s menu whilst the artwork is on display.

Battersea Power Station’s Spring/Summer season does not stop there. On 9th May, a special Shopping Event will take place between 5pm – 8pm and will have inspiring panel talks with fashion and beauty experts including celebrity hair stylist Paul Edmonds from Battersea Power Station’s Paul Edmonds Hair & Beauty Salon. Shoppers will also be able to enjoy elevated in-store experiences and complimentary refreshments, discounts including 20% off at Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, sampling from brands such as Kiehl’s and Jo Malone London and gift with purchase at certain stores from Hugo Boss to Curated Makers and Venchi.
