Chertsey Company officeshopper.com is putting on the style with a new collection of clothes designed for them by the London College of Fashion.

The college is one of the company’s fast growing list of online customers. When the students wanted a new challenge for London Fashion Week Officeshopper offered their online office supplies for an innovative collection.

The outfits, which took less than two months to create, have been such a success Officeshopper have been asked to feature them at an international conference in Geneva. All the outfits have been made from office stationery.

Jeff Meers, Chief Executive of Officeshopper, said: “This has been a fantastic project. We were stunned by the high standard of entries, so stunned in fact that we are now making this an annual event and will be presenting five awards. We are a fast growing business and an exciting one but we are a solid business. We can prove that “dot coms” don’t have to be “dot bombs”, they can come back into fashion”.

Jessica Bugg, from the London College of Fashion, said: “We were delighted to work with Officeshopper on this stationery collection. It has been great fun and a great challenge, combining good design with the height of fashion. We are amazed at the success of the outfits and can’t wait to take them to Geneva.”
