From The Loop magazine

From the 19 - 21 April, Fashion Marketing and Branding final year student Daisy Simpson from NTU will be hosting a pop-up event on the fourth floor of Waterstones in the Sillitoe Room to showcase her recently established business Papier Bazaar. The pop-up event will be selling independent magazines from around the world. All money made from the sales will be donated to the charity Springboard for Children which works in partnership with schools to provide dedicated literacy centres for children who struggle with the task of learning to read and write.

The event is part of Ms Simpson’s final year project. When asked what inspired her to pick this particular area she said, “I found a lot of independent magazine retailers were populating online but nothing was really out there on the high-street representing all the diverse independent magazines. Personally I have always been a bit mad about magazines and hope to work in this field when I graduate, and have a massive collection of foreign and UK magazines.”

The magazines cover a broad spectrum of genres from across the globe. Out of the collection Ms Simpson recommends The Loop “children's magazine but looks so much fun”, Justified magazine as “it’s pretty cool and formed from an online blog” and Smith Journal “a mens lifestyle but great and intelligent content.

There will also be artwork on display from local artist Mr The Beef.
