I spent a great day at The Fashion Souk with my bestie Carolyn from Forever Scarlet. We are both fans of The Fashion Souk but had not made a visit to one of their events in a while so we thought we’d grab our camera’s and make an afternoon of it. As usual there were lots of great sellers of vintage and second-hand clothes, handmade jewellery and vintage homewares. The ladies behind The Fashion Souk are all about being fashionable and stylish without having to buy brand new or mass-produced goods. I am a big supporter of this ethical ethos and it’s definitely more fun shopping for things you know not many people will have!
