Loughborough shop launches upcycling fashion contest
Our Loughborough charity shop has launched a fashion competition, encouraging the public to redesign and upcycle a pair of black trousers. The winner and runner-up will be awarded with prizes, and their creations will be displayed in the charity shop window.
The entrees will be judged at local bar The Kelso on Thursday 19th May, 7-9pm. This will involve a fashion show modelled by volunteers, with a judging panel to determine the winner of the trophy and prizes. The runner-up will receive a certificate and a prize.
The evening will also involve an additional catwalk show of clothes available at our charity shop.
Penny Bailey, Shop Manager, said: “We’re holding this competition as a way to work with local businesses and tap into the talent of the Loughborough community.
“Entrants can use their imagination to upcycle into any item of clothing, such as a top, skirt or handbag, or simply bling up the existing pair of trousers!”
Members of the public can enter the competition by popping into the Loughborough shop for a registration form. Entry costs £3 and includes a pair of black trousers. The contest is open from Friday 15th April until Saturday 14th May. For more information, please contact the shop on 01509 210 869.
