Lorraine Keane’s Fashion Relief Store
The Fashion Relief Pop Up boasts rail after rail of brand-new and pre-loved donated clothes, shoes and accessories, offering a more sustainable way to shop, while also supporting Oxfam’s global work to beat poverty.
Fashion Relief started in 2018 when broadcaster Lorraine Keane teamed up with Oxfam Ireland to organise a series of live Fashion Relief events. Since then, Fashion Relief has travelled nationwide to Dublin, Galway and Cork and raised almost €280,000 for Oxfam’s work with the poorest and most vulnerable. When COVID-19 resulted in the postponement of the 2020 events, Fashion Relief pivoted to an online shopping platform with the help of Irish tech firm Axonista – a partnership recognised at the recent US TV of Tomorrow Awards where Axonista took home the Corporate Leadership in the Coronavirus Era award for Fashion Relief TV. Taking all the best elements from Fashion Relief live shows and the shopping channel (www.fashionrelief.ie), the Frascati Fashion Relief Pop-up is packed full of designer and boutique bargains.
Lorraine Keane said: “We are thrilled the Frascati Centre has so generously offered to host our Fashion Relief Pop-up. We have pieces from the fashion houses of Burberry, Diane von Furstenberg, Victoria Beckham alongside Irish designers Fee G, Deborah Veale and Louise Kennedy. We would also be delighted to receive any preloved items in great condition at our Pop Up.
“By bagging a bargain from the Fashion Relief Pop-up, you’ll be shopping more sustainably, helping to divert pre-loved and end-of-line clothes from landfill, and doing your bit for people and planet – including communities most at risk from the climate crisis.”
