If you’re looking to curb your fast fashion addiction or save your wallet and the environment at the same time, shopping for second hand clothing is the way to go. In Bristol there are some seriously amazing vintage clothes stores to check out that mean you don’t even have to choose sustainability over style either. For even more bargains this month, ClothesCycle, the UK’s biggest pop-up sustainable fashion market, is back in Bristol too.
ClothesCycle is a sustainable fashion brand that curates pop-up shopping experiences in cities across the UK. Started last year by University of Bristol student Poppy Collingwood-Cameron, it has hosted large-scale events in the likes of London, Manchester and, of course, Bristol. Featuring thousands of unique and sustainable garments and accessories, as well as beauty treatments, street-food, music, cocktails, art classes and more.
On April 23, the sustainable fashion market will be back in the South West, two months since its last Bristol market, bigger and better than ever. Heading to Propyard, between 11am-5pm, expect over over 80 stalls of preloved fashion items ranging from bargain vintage finds to exclusive designers. Plus there will also be new clothes for sale that are ethically produced.
Visitors can also purchase street food and cocktails, get a tooth gem, join a drawing class or have their tarot cards read. There will also be a clothes swap, so bring along your old where attendees can bring a couple of old items of clothing too.
“ClothesCycle is for the ethically conscious, fun-loving and fashion savvy. Our events epitomise a sustainable blend of high street fashion, in person depop and car boot sale,” said Poppy. “We offer something for everyone, whatever your style, age or budget. You can spend £10 on a few items or splash over £100 on a unique, luxury brand archive piece.”
