As part of their ‘Dare to Re-wear’ initiative, pupils in College were kindly given the opportunity to enjoy a totally unique shopping experience by Mount School parent, Vicky, and Oxfam.
As the sustainable fashion trend continues to grow, now is the perfect opportunity for people everywhere to ‘make a statement’ and wear pre-loved and pre-owned products. With this in mind, the girls were invited to look through a collection of dresses, perfect for them to wear to their upcoming ‘Leavers’ Strawberry Ball.’
Having access to such beautiful garments, right here at The Mount, enabled the girls to enjoy the dress shopping experience together amongst friends.
The ‘Dare to Rewear’ and ‘Make a Statement’ ethos is growing in popularity within the fashion industry and beyond. In supporting this great cause, not only are the lifespans of stunning garments extended, but also the environmental impact of your wardrobe is reduced, and you can find one-of-a kind pieces. Something that our girls believe in and feel passionately about.
