Oxfam Tullamore still closed, but online fashion sale set for Friday

Oxfam Tullamore may be closed for now but people can still shop with Oxfam Ireland this Friday, when Fashion Relief TV, broadcaster Lorraine Keane's sustainable fashion fundraiser, returns.

"As the lockdown continues, which means Oxfam Tullamore remains closed, we are delighted to be able to offer you a Covid-safe way to still shop Oxfam," said Lorraine Keane.

"We'll be showcasing beautiful pre-loved and brand-new pieces from the wardrobes of some of Ireland’s most fashionable women as well as from designers and boutiques from all over Ireland.

"People who tune in from 7pm on Friday, via fashionrelief.ie, can click on the items they love and buy them then and there on Fashion Relief TV!"

"Thanks to the generosity of donors we have created our very own little Fashion Relief circular economy – as long as people continue to donate fabulous items, we will continue to have fabulous bargains up for grabs."

Along with Oxfam Tullamore, Fashion Relief is part of Oxfam’s solution to ‘throwaway fashion’, encouraging people to donate pre-loved items and reduce the amount of clothes that end up in landfill as well as shopping second-hand to give pre-loved clothes a longer life.

Friday's show will be packed full of brand-new and pre-loved donated clothes, shoes and accessories, as well as a host of designer labels like Preen, Celine, Ganni and Alexander McQueen, pieces donated by Laura Whitmore, Caroline Downey and Lorraine Keane, and much-loved Irish labels like Aideen Bodkin, Louise Kennedy and Fee G – at bargain prices.

Fashion Relief TV will air from Lorraine Keane’s home at 7pm on Friday 9th April on www.fashionrelief.ie.

All of the profits support Oxfam's work in some of the world’s poorest countries, helping people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive as well as saving lives when disaster strikes. Since its inception, Fashion Relief has raised nearly €270,000 for Oxfam.
