Consider Yourself A Sustainable Style Queen? This Comp Is For You!

Are you obsessed with all things sustainable? If your fashion reflects your love of thrifting, this comp is for you.

Online charity shop Thriftify and Ireland’s top sustainable advocates The Useless Project have launch a nationwide search for Ireland’s top sustainable stylist.

Speaking about the search for Ireland’s top sustainable stylists, Geraldine Carton and Taz Kelleher from the Useless Project said; “We are looking for participants to have a bit of fun with this – to let those creative juices flow and really show off your personality with each ensemble! We would love to find people who know how to make clothes sing and stand out from a crowd; and who can find a preloved jewel amongst the rest of the bargains on Thriftify.

We can’t wait to see our Instagram community get involved with the voting too as they are quite the discerning bunch! We’ll be showcasing the top contenders on our stories, so we will be letting the public have the final say on the top sustainable stylist, and of course the winner of the amazing charity shop warehouse adventure!”
