"If one million women bought their next item of clothing second-hand instead of new, we would save 6 million kg of carbon pollution from entering the atmosphere."

"This ETHICAL FASHION, THIS 'SUSTAINABLE FASHION', THAT COMPLIES TO WHAT FASHION REALLY IS, THAT IS BORNE OUT OF PASSION, SKILLS, HERITAGE, ARTISTRY & BRAVERY is fashion."

Based on the "Haulternative" concept introduced by Fashion Revolution - an imaginative way to freshen up your wardrobe without buying "new" clothes - during Fashion Revolution Week this Saturday 29th April, swap your high-street shopping sprees for an afternoon of vibrant vintage and second-hand collections. Based in the dynamic Creative Quarter of Dublin - and kicking off in fashion wonderland Om Diva at 2pm, where owner/creative force Ruth Ni Loinsigh will chat vintage through the ages - five shops have specially curated pieces for the occasion.
Fronted by empowering initiatives & vintage specialists such as Saint Vincent de Paul, Oxfam and Enable Ireland, whose philosophies champion human-rights empowerment as passionately as Fashion Revolution, your colourful finds will be contributing to a collective of fantastic, entirely-transparent movements.
