10 of the best independent fashion shops in Cheltenham

Thursday January 1, 1970

Cheltenham’s shopping scene is thriving with big name retailers like John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, Anthropologie and House of Frasier. However, with the emphasis on buying local, Cheltenham BID has selected 10 of the town’s top independent fashion shops that should not be overlooked during your next shopping trip.

1. The Union Project – 32 Cambray Place & 6 Queens Circus

The Union Project began in 2013 with the goal of bringing like-minded individuals, brands, and ideas together under one physical and digital roof. They curate fashion, homeware, and apothecary that are not only stylish but also purposeful and have a story to tell. The Union Project encourages their community to buy less, to buy more conscientiously, and to invest in a more sustainable and ethical way forward.

To The Union Project, style and responsibility can and should coexist. They recognise that they do not have all the answers but aim to curate brands that share the same journey and intention to empower more informed choices.

The Union Project is and has always been rooted in community, the union of people, beliefs, and protecting the things they love.
