‘Appy Allan’

Allan Bradbury Vivienne Westwood

About 5 weeks ago Worlds End shop had a visit from one of its favourite customers, Allan Bradbury.
He had come down to London with Gareth & Natasha who are in the process of making a documentary about Allan & his philosophy, to be called ‘Appy Allan’. They were filming his visit to the shop & I met them there. Continue reading

Free post in UK

Just a quick post to say that it looks now as if the World’s End shop will be closed until much further into November.
Whilst the shop is closed it is still possible to buy items through mail order on
worldsend@viviennewestwood.com & I have just been told that for within the UK the postage will not be charged for these items.
Happy Shopping!

Closed for a bit…….


The Worlds End shop has not been open this week as at last a major refurbishment is under way.
Apologies for not giving any advance notice but the decision to close came on us suddenly.The reason for this refurbishment is rather interesting.
We have now acquired the basement space to number 430.
Anyone who has ever been to the shop will know that there has always been a restaurant next door. The longest running one was called Osteria (this was here before Let It Rock opened & is now in Clapham High St).
The new space will not be used for retail. Instead an office, storage space & room for the mail order side of things will be incorporated here. Also a new changing room & at last a toilet!.
This will create a lot more space on the shop floor itself & will allow for some major changes here too although don’t worry, the shop is still keeping its original pirate ship theme.
Work is expected to last for the rest of October & into November maybe.
In the meantime the mail order side of business is still in operation on:
worldsend@viviennewestwood.com

Thank you….
(& of course I will still be posting on this site & will keep you informed)
