It is part of the Fix Up Look Sharp fashion brand run by CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people and their families.
Over the weekend of 3-4 August the charity will be opening the pop-up shop in Cabot Circus shopping centre, where shoppers can buy a range of specially-designed items. The fashion line features various stylish and on-trend pieces, created using donated stock such as curtains, bed sheets and other unwanted fabric.
The charity launched its range last year and now sells items at its vintage clothing shop on Gloucester Road, Bishopston.
The Fix Up Look Sharp fashion brand has been designed and produced by fashion graduate Ruth Strugnell, who is a Deputy Manager at one of CLIC Sargent’s shops, and her design partner Gemma Pope, from Bristol.
Ruth said: “We’re really excited that people will get the chance to buy some of our amazing upcycled items at the pop-up shop.
“The CLIC Sargent vintage shop in Bishopston already attracts many customers looking for unique garments but the pop-up shop means even more people will have the opportunity to browse and buy our latest fashions.
“The pop-up shop will feature a selection of items which have been upcycled such as cut-off shorts, sweaters and shirts. The shop will also have a showcase selection of handmade one off pieces, which have been created entirely from donated fabrics ensuring that you will always look sharp and stand out from the crowd.”
Stephanie Lacey, Centre Manger at Cabot Circus, said: “Pop-up shops add another dimension to Cabot Circus and we are delighted to welcome CLIC Sargent to the centre which will complement the fantastic retail line-up. Not only will they be offering one-of-a-kind upcycled clothing but all proceeds will be going towards the CLIC Sargent charity and we are proud to support that.”
