DSM’s archive sale receives overwhelming response

From Tuesday May 16 to Sunday May 21, Dover Street Market has re-opened its archival sale after six years hiatus. Happening at Printworks, south east London, tickets to the sale are free, but online registration is required. After the early access to family and friends on May 15, the first day open to the public received a tremendous response with the queue closing for the day just an hour after the doors at Printworks were opened.

“I saw people on TikTok showing off their £20 Kiko (Kostadinov) shoes, it’s crazy,” said Kyra Lui, an art student and fashion enthusiast. “I couldn’t get in the first day, I got here by 9am (today) and queued for five hours, so that’s not bad I guess?”

If you are planning to go, go early and prepare to queue (just as you would go to Printworks, when it was a club venue).
