  • Are you ready to frock?

    January 12, 2014

    It's nearly time for the Frockery Eco-Fashion Challenge 2014.

    A wee reminder of why we do it

    By way of incentive to save the planet (and the wallet) in style, there will be prizes at the end of February's challenge for our favourite eco-fashionistas.

    So are you ready to frock?

  • The Frockery Eco-Fashion Challenge 2013 has begun!

    February 1, 2013

    Are you ready to frock? Why not join the Frockers and friends in February to rock the retro, hype the hand made and celebrate the second hand?

    Our 3rd annual Eco-Fashion Challenge kicks off today on our Facebook Group, but you can also take part on Twitter using the #frockerychallenge hashtag.

    This is why we do it!

    And by way of added incentive to save the planet (and the wallet) in style there will be prizes at the end of the month. 

    You'll find the details and (minimal rules) here.

    February 1, 2012

    No, you didn't miss our earlier announcement of the Frockery's Eco-Fashion Challenge 2012 which starts today and runs throughout February, it's just that January ran out faster than anticipated. Our best excuse is that we are dedicated followers of slow fashion!

    Our inaugural challenge was held last year as a fun way of combating the snowdrift blues and was a great success, so we decided to make it an annual event. We have, however, simplified the rules this year to make it easier to take part. So do come and join us in our 2012 February frock-up!

    Frockery February Eco-Fashion Challenge 2012

    In celebration of hand made, vintage, retro and recycled, we are once again encouraging friends, fans and followers to take part in our February eco-fashion challenge during the shortest, darkest and most depressingly bill-filled month of the year.

    The rules are simple

    Most of your clothing should be hand made, vintage, recycled or second hand during February and you should post your pictures, outfit descriptions, sources and costs on the Frockery Facebook page over the course of the month (as many or as few as you like!)

    If you don't 'do' Facebook, you can post your entries here on our blog or email them to us directly and we will post them for you.

    Pics mean prizes

    Frockery vouchers (£100 for the winner and £50 for the runner up) will go to the posters of the most stylish and creative eco-fashionable ensembles at the end of the month.

    So come on everybody, let's frock!

  • Congratulations to our winning eco-fashionistas!

    March 3, 2011

    Our first ever February eco-fashion challenge has now ended and we’d like to thank everyone who took part. Showcasing charity shop finds, vintage pieces, hand made and recycled frockery, it was such fun that we we’ll definitely be repeating it next year.

    So who won? Over to our independent judge Amber, who has now completed her deliberations:

    First of all, can I just say that judging this was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, because I really wanted to award the prize to everyone. (Looking at the photos has also made me determined to hit up my local charity shops at the first possible opportunity – so many great outfits!)

    Anyway, after a lot of thought, I’ve finally come to a decision and the winner is (drumroll)...

    Mary Wellock!

    I chose Mary, not just because of her flair for fashion (I absolutely loved all of the bright colours and patterns in Mary’s outfits), but also because I was really impressed with her knack of being able to alter items, either by dyeing them, or by taking them apart and turning them into something else. That takes a good eye and a lot of skill, so kudos to Mary!

    In the runner’s up position, I’ve chosen Annick Breugelmans. The main thing I noticed about Annick’s photos was her ability to create lots of very different looks, proving how versatile eco fashion can be (and also that Annick can wear just about anything!).

    Well done to everyone who took part and thanks, Alison, for running the challenge and allowing me to be part of it!

    So congratulations to Mary and Annick! Your prizes will be winging their way to you very soon.

    And since this is our first ever challenge, we have decided that everyone deserves to be a winner this year, so we’ll be sending some thank you vouchers to all the other great participants.

    See you all next year, if not before!

    February 1, 2011

    Our first ever February eco-fashion challenge is now underway!

    So come on, ladies and gentlemen, post your eco-fashion pics for prizes on our Facebook events page (or, if you don't do Facebook, send them directly to alison@frockery.co.uk for posting). You might want to showcase a different outfit every day or just a few examples of your February eco-frockery, which should comprise predominantly vintage, second hand or hand made clothing.

    £50 Frockery vouchers are up for grabs for the most creative and eco-stylish fashionistas in February. Not only that, vintage themed cupcakes from our friends at  The Scarlet Bakery will be winging their way to some runners up at the end of the challenge.

    It should be a  piece of cake, so it's over to you!
