Following a hugely popular launch event at centre:mk, ‘We are. Second life fashion’ is back this Autumn 13th, 14th, 15th October, where eco-conscious shoppers can add to their wardrobe with quality vintage pieces at a fraction of the price, including some designer brands. Bargains to be had include Armani jackets from £40 and Dolce & Gabbana t-shirts from £25*.
The initiative, hosted by centre:mk, forms part of the shopping destinations strategy to support the circular economy; by designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use and regenerating natural systems.
‘We are.’ – the company that run the enterprise, are specialists when it comes to vintage and pre-loved clothing. Their events, which are held at top shopping destinations from Portobello Road to our own centre:mk, combine the demand for high quality vintage fashion whilst saving clothes from going to landfill (so far they have stopped around half a million clothing items from going to waste).
The ‘second life’ event in Middleton Hall, will include sportswear, dresses, t-shirts, denim, streetwear, jackets and much more, in a full range of sizes. The ‘Gold’ area at the event will also feature a range of designer brands; including Barbour, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, and Moschino to name but a few, with individually priced pieces offering brilliant value.
Kevin Duffy, Centre Director said, “We are pleased to welcome back second life fashion to centre:mk this Autumn after its huge success here in the Spring. As a business at the heart of the community and home to so many fashion retailers, it’s important for us to play our part in making the world a more sustainable place, and hosting events such as this promoting the circular economy, fits perfectly with our own sustainability initiatives. centre:mk have always been pioneers in this field with the UK’s first carbon neutralizing roof and we take pride in recycling 1350 tonnes of waste, 22% of which is converted into renewable energy each year. We hope that this event will be another great weekend” for our shoppers who want to combine sustainably shopped items alongside their favourite high street purchases.”
Tickets for the ‘Second Life’ event in Middleton Hall are available on Eventbrite although you can walk in on the day and will be open from 9am till 8pm on Friday 24th February, 9am till 7pm on Saturday and 11am till 5pm on Sunday.
