Centrale offers £5 to first shoppers who ‘declutter to refresh’

Centrale is offering fashion and styling tips, and a chance to declutter your wardrobe

Croydon shoppers are being encouraged to recycle before they refresh their wardrobes, as the Centrale shopping mall in the town centre announces it will host an autumn fashion and beauty event with a difference.

“Declutter to Refresh” on October 4-5 will see shoppers asked to donate their old clothes – the organisers call them “pre-loved” – to local charity TRAID, who will be in the centre accepting donation bags to ensure that less clothing ends up goes to landfill.

TRAID is a charity working to turn clothes waste into funds and resources to reduce the environmental and social impacts of our clothes. Volunteers will be accepting washed and pressed garments. The first 100 customers to donate will receive a £5 gift card to spend in the centre.

After handing in their old clothes, shoppers can go and explore the “Declutter to Refresh” area, where they’ll get the chance to meet three professional stylists who are on hand giving out free, expert advice on giving their old wardrobe new love and introducing them to something called “the capsule concept”.

Stylists Natalie Robinson, Sam Gray and Lauren Jobling each have their own approach to fashion, between them having worked on personal styling, celebrity dressing and editorial photo-shoots.

The stylists have used only 25 items to create 100 brand new looks. The outfits will be displayed in four giant wardrobe pods, giving shoppers a chance to browse and get inspired this season’s trends.

As well as four fashion pods, the stylists have also helped to create the must-have beauty products and shoppers can redeem a free beauty session by downloading the Centrale PLUS App.
