We Are Tits: The female-led pop up shop supporting breast cancer charity 'Coppafeel'


I first met Jess Powell, illustrator behind Rumble Cards and co-founder of 'We Are Tits, London' at the GCA's Speed Dating with Dragons event in April, 2018. We were sat together during a talk by the incredibly knowledgable Ged Mace, Managing Director at The Art File and she'd brought with her a selection of her celebrity cards. The one which sat on her lap was an original Frida Khalo design, with the caption 'Feel Frida Party'. Frida Khalo in recent years has become somewhat of an icon in the art and fashion industry, a mascot for feminism and the first real woman to really 'do a selfie' (move over Kim K). Little did I know that this card was so instrumental in what was to come in Jess' career.


Fast-forward a year, and we see the launch of 'We Are Tits', a charity pop-up shop in London celebrating female designers and makers, with 10% of all proceeds going to breast cancer charity 'Coppafeel'. I was honoured to be contacted to be involved in this progressive initiative supporting independent female designers for the initial launch and am thrilled to see that the shop is now open for the third time, this year in Shoreditch from the 16-30th November, 2019.


Visitors to 188 Shoreditch High Street can expect to find gift items from a huge array of incredible designers, perfect for unique, feel-good Christmas presents. There's boobs on nearly everything - socks, crochet bags, t-shirts, cards and mugs, to name just a few. This year, they've also worked on a collaborative tea towel, where each designer involved in the pop-up has drawn a unique set of knockers to add to the kitchen essential. I for one cannot wait to get my hands on one of those bad boys (or should I say, 'bad girls').


Not only can you find some of the most unique and current giftware on the market at the moment, but if you're in the area, you can also attend some of the fab workshops the girls have organised, including Christmas Jumpers and Christmas Ceramics.


You can read more about We Are Tits here, as well as Coppafeel here. If you're in London over the next couple of weeks, I urge you to go and check out what all the well-deserved fuss is about.
