The best in vintage on offer

Wednesday, 11th October, 2017 4:56pm

This Saturday will see the second edition of the Glitz & Glamour Fashion Showcase.

The event will take place at St Peter’s Exhibition Centre on North Main Street from 4.30-7pm.

Having begun last year as part of Reuse Month, the extravaganza has quickly become a must-visit event for fashionistas on Leeside, with the best of vintage and pre-loved clothing from Cork’s best-known stores on show.

Designers and retailers from Cork will show off their style in the showcase, organised with the assistance of Barnados charity shop, who run a thriving business on North Main Street.

Other businesses lending their support and fashion flair include Miss Daisy Blue, the Retro Workshop, Enable Ireland, Mercury Goes Retrograde, Gorta, Records and Relics with wonderful headpieces from Isabella Ru.

After the fashion show, the participating charity shops will sell looks from their stores, allowing shoppers an opportunity to browse the rails and pick up some pre-loved items ahead of the party season.

Furniture and other everyday items will also be getting a makeover this year at a special demonstration on up-cycling your home.

Workshops and exhibitions aimed at inspiring those attending will provide tips and ideas on how to reuse unused items.

The event is organised by Cork City Council, Cork Environmental Forum and Southern Region Waste Management Office.

Bernadette Connolly, co-ordinator for Cork Environmental Forum, said: “The event’s aim is to encourage people to reuse and repurpose furniture and clothing no longer in use, while also encouraging shoppers to consider the reuse sector when looking to update their look and homes.

“Shopping in the reuse sector also opens up shoppers to eclectic items such as books, records and crockery with character.”
