GV Wardrobe is the sustainable alternative to the fast-fashion giant, with its newest pop-up shop opening tomorrow for two weeks of in-person retail therapy.
The new store at 12 North Street, Shepperton will carry approximately 2000 clothing items in women’s sizes 4-26 and men’s sizes XXS-XXXL.
The pop-up shop has changing rooms, cash or card payment options, and all items are available for as little as $10.
GV Wardrobe founder Sam Spinks sees the pop-up as a test run to see what a permanent store opening might look like.
“The priority is always online. That’s where it all started and is part of the GV Wardrobe vision,” she said.
“But for those who prefer to shop in-store, this is a great opportunity to step in and try it on.”
Spinks thanks community members for their support and acceptance of the concept so far.
“Last year’s pop-up had an amazing turnout — it was just one weekend,” she said.
“By being open for two full weeks (three weekends) this time around, we can give people more time to shop at their convenience.
“Plus, new items are added over the course of two weeks, giving customers a reason to keep coming back.”
They say it lights up the room when people talk about their passions. Ms. Spinks does just that when describing her business’ contribution to ending fast fashion.
“Fashion is cyclical. Items come and go, and GV Wardrobe offers shoppers accessibility, affordability and sustainability,” she said.
“Money spent on good clothes that no longer serve people is their hard-earned money, which they donate and in return receive a $2 coupon to spend at GV Wardrobe. I am satisfied with.”
This is free clothing for every 5 items donated.
Spinks said that’s why GV Wardrobe fought fast fashion.
This is the dress for success.
GV Wardrobe will open at 12 North Street, Shepperton from Saturday, January 7th through Sunday, January 22nd.
