This weekend marks the beginning of the festival season with the iconic Glastonbury festival. Whether you’re eagerly awaiting Jeremy Corbyn’s appearance at Glasto, searching for that perfect outfit for Reading, or preparing the kids for a fun packed festival weekend, FARA is the place to shop the festival look.
In the build up to the summer season high street shops are packed full with “festival essentials”, with everything from waterproofs to bum bags to wellies. But instead of rocking up in the same mac as every other festival goer – stand out in the crowd by grabbing something truly unique from your local FARA. Not only will you find ‘one of a kind’ items to wow your friends with, but you’ll be helping the environment too. According to the WWF, it can take up to 2700 litres of water just to produce one cotton t-shirt, let alone the amount of pollution produced in the production of wellies and waterproofs. Buying second hand clothes therefore has many environmental benefits, not only securing you a distinctive style but also lowering your carbon footprint!
If you do want to shop vintage for your unique look shop then head straight to FARA’s Retromania London store in Pimlico. This specialist shop is stocked entirely with vintage pieces and iconic designer clothing and accessories donated to FARA. It is an emporium of style that will certainly provide you with something amazing to wear for that much sought after festival look. If it is 80’s/90’s retro chic you are after our FARA shop in Angel, Islington stocks a wide range of quirky, fun retro clothing for all ages and sizes, as well as broken designer and cheap high street items with friendly staff to help you with any requests. And for the little ones, FARA Kids shops stock a wide range of children’s clothing and shoes, ensuring the whole family look their best this summer. Our Kids shop in Pimlico was recently named one of the best charity shops in London by the Evening Standard so is definitely worth a visit!
When you shop at FARA be assured your spending is doing good. FARA shops are the lifeline of the FARA Foundation, their revenues ensuring the charity can continue its vitally needed services for children and young people in Romania. Not only do charity shops allow a bit of sin free shopping, but are often far cheaper than clothing retailers, meaning more money left over for those expensive festival food and drink vendors.
When you’re looking for the perfect outfit this summer think FARA for all your festival needs.
