A celebration of the creative arts, showcasing a curation of works from eight University of Westminster Student and Graduate creative entrepreneurs. A selling exhibition, in central London’s 67 York Street from 9 – 15 December 2018, will encompass a curation of high quality limited edition fashion, crafts, photography, prints and graphic design, in a maximalist celebration of colour, print and texture. Purchases made will directly support the trading students and graduate.  


The ‘WESTMINSTER POP UP’ is an enterprise and experiential learning project commissioned by the Creative Enterprise Centre’s (CEC) entrepreneurship accelerator programme to launch and showcase the University’s entrepreneurial designers, makers, creators and crafters. The selected students and graduates were enrolled onto a preparatory business support accelerator programme to develop their entrepreneurship attributes, skills and to grow & launch their brands.

CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS INVOLVED IN WESTMINSTER POP UP 2018

YOANA PULEVA

BA (Hons) Illustration and Visual Communication

Decorative and purposeful, my designs celebrate idiosyncratic colour and explore the calmness and honesty of organic form. Trained in illustration, I consider myself to be a mixed-media artist, expressing my creativity through the mediums of painting, stitching and ceramics. Taking inspiration from the subconscious, by utilising surrealist techniques such as free association, my work celebrates the beauty of irregularity and imperfection as a product of relinquishing control.

MANON PLANCHE

BA (Hons) Fashion Design

Manon Planche is a colourful label sporting unapologetic bold printed pieces that are both comfortable and unconventional. It is inspired by and created for people who are not afraid to stand out.

Inspiration also comes from looking at uncommon means of transportation and the fantastic groups of people involved in operating them. From custom motorcycles to drag racing cars and vintage jet skis, I am driven by the craziest activities, which are usually conducted by equally crazy people who dare to try anything.
