Pre-loved fashion is the gift that keeps on giving; one person's sartorial trash really is another's stylish treasure, after all. Hopefully, you'll find the latter at Revive Fashion Festival. Yes, it's an event dedicated to all things vintage and secondhand — or a way to spread the pre-loved love.
Popping up at the Cultural Centre Forecourt at South Bank for one afternoon only, Revive is a chance to grab a bargain and garner a heap of great outfit ideas all at once. The city's best best pre-loved and revived clothing stalls will be selling their wares at a pop-up market, but that's only part of the fun. Who doesn't want to watch a fashion parade filled with secondhand savvy, enjoy some live entertainment and feast on bites to eat from an array of the city's best food trucks as well?
Plus, you can get some sewing and style tips from the experts to ensure you really are making the most of your wardrobe. Now in its second year — celebrating all things old never gets old, after all — the fest is a precursor to National Op Shop Week, which runs from August 27 to September 2, so consider it a warm-up for all of the vintage shopping in your future.
