I had been waiting for this weekend for a long long time (my first blog post!) for the first Johnny Cupcakes store to open up in the UK at Fouberts Place just off Carnaby Street!
I've been a fan for a few years now since my friend Ismail introduced me to the brand so I came down especially from Newcastle - where I study - to witness the opening, show my support, get my hands on an exclusive tee & meet the man himself again :) There was a massive turn out and it was a huge success!
My sister & I started queuing at 10am and the shop opened at 1pm, but we didn't get in until nearly half 5 (7.5ish hours). It was well worth the wait though and just a great atmosphere to be around!
Amazing shoes worn by a German fan who flew over for the opening. Jeremy Scott bear trainers [Link]
Got this jumper as a Christmas present 2 years ago, I love it :)
My goodies! 1 new tee, 2 badges, sweets, so many leaflets, a 'saved by the bell' card.
'Do more of what makes you happy' - A great philosophy to live by, I need to do this.
I got a small men's top because they ran out of women sizes but I prefer it like this!
All credits (I'm not a thief) go to my sister for giving me the idea to do this. I just took some photos of a selection people queuing up that were reppin' their JC tops to show past designs. Maybe I should have taken more but I was a little shy, so thank you for those who allowed me to take their photo :)
Bring on the 1 year reunion & 10 year anniversary coming soon.
p.s. it doesn't sell cupcakes, just clothing etc haha
