If show-stopping style makes your heart beat fast, but sustainability is also important to you, then ‘The Thrift-Off’ might just be the spring awakening that you need to get your fashion fix.
An online preloved fashion styling competition is aiming to showcase all the fabulous finds that are available via online charity shop Thriftify and to get people shopping from Irish charities and buying pre-loved fashion.
By entering, you will be supporting Irish charity shops and giving retailers a much-needed boost at a time when their stores are physically closed.
Shopping for pre-loved fashion is the perfect way to get working on your spring/summer wardrobe without adding to landfill or increasing your carbon footprint. Geraldine Carton and Taz Kelleher from the Ireland’s top sustainable advocates, ‘The Useless Project’, said: “We are looking for participants to have a bit of fun with this – to let those creative juices flow and really show off your personality with each ensemble!
“We would love to find people who know how to make clothes sing and stand out from a crowd; and who can find a preloved jewel amongst the rest of the bargains on Thriftify”.
