This year, the festival expands its ties with long-time collaborator Anthropologie with the lifestyle brand taking up residence in the festival’s legendary Wardrobe Department – an area described as ‘basecamp for fashion imagination gone wild’ and curated by internationally renowned fashion critic Sarah Mower.

As part of the activities, Anthropologie will host a series of creative workshops for guests, including a pompom headband-making class. Anthropologie’s visual manager Zoe and Dustcloud Studio will be hand painting florals on leather coin purses, while renowned artist Mary Lynch will create life-size versions of her dolls capes.

The Wardrobe Department will be launched by fashion designer Ashish, and present talks by milliner Stephen Jones, designer Giles Deacon and Sarah Mower.

Port Eliot Festival will take place on 27-30 July at Port Eliot estate in St Germans.
