Raid My Wardrobe pops up at Living Smart Festival

Date posted: 13 September 2017

Hunter fashionistas will be able to pick up a bargain at this year’s Living Smart Festival, with eco-fashion event, Raid My Wardrobe, joining the festival line-up for the first time.

Council’s Manager Sustainability, Alice Howe, said the Raid My Wardrobe pop-up would feature an exclusive collection of 14 pre-loved fashion stalls for shoppers to choose from.

“Raid My Wardrobe has a huge following across the Hunter region, and it demonstrates a real commitment to reducing waste through recycling, making this event a perfect addition to the Living Smart Festival line-up,” Dr Howe said.

“Past Raid My Wardrobe events have featured near-new designer pieces from the likes of Guanabana, Lisa Ho, Sass and Bide, Alannah Hill, Witchery, Oroton, Mimco and more. The pop-up event will include a nice mix of vintage, retro and high-end labels, so if you’ve got a passion for pre-loved fashion, make sure you’re at the festival to grab yourself a bargain.”

The Raid My Wardrobe pop-up market will be in the Heritage Shed at this year’s Living Smart Festival from 9am-2pm on Saturday 23 September in Speers Point Park. Clothes, shoes and bags will be available for sale, with clothing ranging from size 6 to size 24.

Attracting more than 20,000 people annually, Living Smart Festival is one of Lake Macquarie’s largest community events.
