The Big Stella x Smart Works Fashion Sale is HERE

Come inside and say hi!

Our doors are officially open for The Big Stella x Smart Works Fashion Sale at Bicester Village.

Launch day saw us welcome our first customers to the boutique, as well as Smart Works Patron Jane Shepherdson, and Smart Works Ambassador Isabel Spearman, who shared their top style tips and favourite pieces shoppers can get their hands on.

Celebrating the opening of the store, Stella Editor Caroline Barrett said,

“This is the third year Stella has partnered with Smart Works for its high-profile sale – and we have a feeling it’s going to be the best one yet. Despite the many challenges of organising an event during a pandemic, the teams have brought together an incredible edit of clothes. It’s going to be a fabulous 25-day shopping experience.”

Smart Works CEO Kate Stephens said,

“We are so excited to welcome back the renowned Big Fashion Sale. We rely on our incredible Smart Works community to help us continue supporting unemployed women in need. Our service has never been more needed, and so we are grateful to our partners Stella Magazine and Bicester Village for this opportunity, and to all the brands and individuals who have generously donated coveted fashion items towards the project. As we open the boutique doors, we look forward to welcoming shoppers united in their passion to shop with a purpose, helping make a difference to the lives of women across the UK.”

It was a joy to see our first in-store shoppers eager to finally browse our edits. From vintage pieces to our seasonal selections, there are hundreds of enviable items available. Plus a featured edit from Daily Dress Edit, with brands such as Cefinn, Kemi Telford and Dilli Grey, and exclusive makeup sets from Bobbi Brown.

Our boutique is open from 8am-8pm Monday-Saturday and 9am-7pm on Sunday. Located at the far end of the village, near the Pizza Terrace x Farmshop, you can also have a bite to eat after you’ve secured your steals!

100% of proceeds will come to Smart Works, helping us support more unemployed women in need to get the job and transform their lives.
