The Eco-Chic Boutique is Popping up at Glasgow Film Festival 2013

Combining fashion and film, music and movies, venues and unique events, Glasgow Film Festival is a celebration of all things cinema in February. This year, Impact Arts are bringing the fashion with a special Pop Up shop and upcycling workshops at the CCA on Saturday 16th of February.

A mini version of the Eco-chic Boutique, our High Street retail haven, will be popping up from 11am-9pm on Saturday. You can view the exhibition from 11am onwards, but the upcycling workshops will take place from 5pm-9pm after the screening of ‘The Worlds Most Fashionable Prison’.

Lisa Carr, Creative Pathways Manager said:

“We are so glad to be involved in what is shaping up to be the best year of the Glasgow Film Festival to date! If you haven’t heard of the Eco-chic Boutique please come along and see how Impact Arts have successfully combined our youth employability programme Creative Pathways with a high quality, ethical shopping experience. We can’t wait to bring The Boutique to the attention of a new audience on Saturday!”

The workshop will be lead by tutor Jane Hamilton, and two young people on the Creative Pathways programme. Cinema goers will get handy tips on how to give clothes a new lease of life and there will be the opportunity to purchase a unique selection of garments that will make you stand out from the crowd at GFF 2013!
