We are on the road across Northern Ireland’s Barnardos stores to show customers how to re-invent, refashion and reduce clothing waste!
I am a charity shop addict so when Barnardos and I brainstormed these events, I thought… ‘Road trips around Ireland and charity shopping…what’s not to love?!’ I would say 75% of my wardrobe is charity shop finds and re-inventions. It’s the thrill of the chase.
We will be taking over the window displays in Barnardos stores and setting up our ‘pop-up’ sewing surgery. Using shop stock and transforming styles before your eyes! From five-minute fashion fixes to learning new sewing skills, there will be plenty of creative ideas to make your fashion finds one of a kind.
Drop in and get involved!
Carrick: Friday 28th July 11 am – 3 pm
I will be re-inventing teen to adult clothing at the Carrick store, I can’t wait to go up a few days before and rummage in the store-room and on the shop floor!
By getting involved, learning new skills and how to update thrift shop finds you can create your own look, be individual, and take your style from the charity shop to catwalk!
The movement for reinventing, up-cycling, and mending our clothes is spreading fast, let’s get it to grow faster than fast fashion.
