Two-minute try-outs… fashion at The Grove

We are back with our final two-minute try-out at The Grove, our newest collection of contemporary shared ownership homes to launch in Forest Gate. We were joined by Aïssatou from Coffee and Fripes – an independent vintage clothing and coffee shop on Roman Road in Bow – to discuss all things fashion!

Sustainability is more important now than ever, and there are small changes we can all make to help protect our natural environment, such as shopping vintage. Benefits of buying vintage include:

  1. Reducing the production of new clothing which can generate harmful emissions.
  2. Avoids the need for new or excess packaging.
  3. Can still be cost efficient without having to use fast fashion suppliers.

Check out Aïssatou’s top tips for creating chic outfits using vintage and second-hand pieces in the video below. No matter your style, there are so many innovative ways to repurpose and reinvent your clothes.

Make sure to visit Coffee and Fripes for an afternoon filled with shopping and delicious speciality coffee!
