Sustainability is the word on everyone’s lips.
It doesn’t matter what your personal style is, if your look is good for the planet it’s making it to the top of the best-dressed list.
It’s so on-trend that even Love Island has ditched its fast-fashion sponsorships to team up with eBay. Now the search is on for Ireland’s very own top sustainable stylist.
Online charity shop Thriftify and sustainable fashion influencer Kavita have come together to launch The Thrift-Off as they search for Ireland’s next sustainable stylist.
The competition hopes to show fashion fans that you can be both stylish and sustainable by shopping pre-loved and that being fashionable doesn’t have to cost the planet.
16 entrants will be selected to participate and given a budget of €130 to create three outfits sourced from charity shops.
Over the course of four weeks, four competitors will go head-to-head on Kavita’s stories with the general public selecting their favourite stylist.
At the end of the four weeks, the four finalists will go into a grand final with a combination of public voting and expert judging to decide who this year’s top sustainable stylist will be.
Anyone, experienced or novice, can enter by filling out the short application form before July 4th.
Speaking about her role as this year’s host of the competition, Kavita said, “I worked with Thriftify on a project last year and since then I’ve been keeping up with all the amazing work they’ve been doing on their platform.
“When we spoke about the Thrift Off, I was excited to get stuck in and get involved as much as possible! The thing I’m most looking forward to is seeing all the amazing talent that shines through from the Thrift-Off.”
