The Eco-chic Boutique, an Impact Arts project, is on hand for
Halloween with a range of handmade and vintage clothing and accessories which
invite you to unleash your dark side!
The boutique stocks a range of products handmade by young
people aged 16-19 on Impact Arts youth employability programme. From upcycled and handmade homeware, to
unique and on-trend fashion collections, our High Street store celebrates the achievements
of our Creative Pathways participants and pays homage to the skills they have
developed during their time with Impact Arts.
Keith Malloy, lead tutor, explains:
“The participants on our Creative Pathways programme gain a
great sense of achievement from seeing the products they have made on sale in
our Eco-chic Boutique. Each item represents the journey a young person has
made, and not only symbolises the sewing or retail skills they have learned but
reflects a confident young person now ready to make their own way in the
The latest womenswear collection crafted by these young
people is fierce and dark, embracing the deepest depths of winter. Featuring
handmade capes in deep purple and black, leatherette tops and leggings in
shades of black and wine, we’re going gothic. Whether you’re looking for an
affordable addition to your Halloween costume or want to update your winter
wardrobe with bold, on-trend pieces we’ve got it covered.
Our range of
hand-picked vintage is also perfect for playing dress-up, with long velvet
maxi-dresses and midi leather skirts feeding into the Halloween vibe. But if
dressing up isn’t your thing, don’t worry because these pieces will also carry
you through the coming months as stylish additions to your A/W wardrobe.
For the boys, we’ve got an eclectic range of handmade bow
ties and an array of quirky vintage items. RAF jackets, tweed blazers and a
selection of vintage hats, ties and scarves await you!
