Calling all recessionistas!

If you love fashion and love a bargain, then you’ll not want to miss the Oxvamp fashion show being held on Friday 1st April at Bush House.

This unique event will showcase unwanted items from the Oxfam Hub in Portishead that have been lovingly re-styled and re-vamped by UWE fashion students and Orange Street members. The event is in honour of Oxfam’s online store where you can get some great pieces without the hassle of travelling to one of the Oxfam boutique stores (of which there are only 7 in the UK!). 

More and more people are adding unique pieces to their wardrobe that they’ve picked up from charity shops, however not enough people are aware of the gems they’re missing out on, it sometimes only takes a little tweak here and a small alteration there to turn someone else’s junk into your favourite treasure.

The re-vamped items will be on the catwalk and are expected to be very avant-garde and unrecognisable from their original state, it’ll be impossible to leave without being inspired to create your own masterpiece. If sewing isn’t your strong point then don’t worry, the pieces from the show will be making available to purchase on the online store.

For the lucky recessionistas who manage to get a ticket, not only will you be treated to a fabulous fashion show , but you’ll be able to indulge in some yummy cupcakes and wine, and of course, will receive a goodie bag. I can’t wait to see what saunters down the catwalk and promise to feedback after the show.
