SUSTAINABLE STYLE

Oxfam Darlington, situated on Skinnergate in the town centre, is one of eight stores in England that has a bridal department stocked with good quality bridal wear and accessories, both new and pre-loved.
They recently held a photoshoot at The Majestic Theatre in the town with many of the models (and the photographer!) being volunteers at the shop. The whole shoot sought to showcase the talent of local businesses and the outcome was a celebration of all things sustainable - turning the page on affordable wedding style and demonstrating the power of pre-loved.
Hair and makeup was done by Darlington College Hair and Beauty students, ran by award-winning MUA Zoe Philippa, who created a selection of super on-trend glam looks. The beautiful floral backdrops were loaned by Celebrations by Sweet Memories and the amazing flowers were by Botanic Florals, both local businesses in Darlington.

WHY OXFAM?

The majority of the stock is from corporate donors and is brand new with tags, which is sold at a third of the RRP. There is a large room upstairs dedicated to bridal where you can find wedding dresses, bridesmaid/prom dresses, menswear and childrenswear along with mother of the bride outfits and accessories.
Prices start from as little as 99p for accessories and £2.99 for the clothing.

So if you're looking for a dress for less, head to Oxfam, Darlington to explore their incredible bridal range.
