Croydon pop-up brings fashion and gaming to local community

A pop-up shop in Croydon showcasing up and coming musicians and fashion designers is now open for business.

The Fashion Meets Music (FMM) pop-up social enterprise has teamed up with Croydon gaming retailer Go2Games to open up the space in the Centrale shopping centre.

The aim is to provide a place for independent creative brands to promote themselves, as well as offering training and work experience for young people.

The shop also supports designers by providing studio space for photography.
