Glamour is not usually the first thing that comes to mind when eco fashion is mentioned, but did you know that buying vintage means that you can be both green and glamorous? Researchers tell us that it takes ten times more energy to make a ton of textiles than a ton of glass so it makes sense to recycle our clothes and give Mother Nature a break. It also helps to avoid fast fashion and invest in classic pieces that will last which is where vintage clothing really shows off its green credentials.

Generally speaking, the materials and workmanship in a dress that started life in the 1950s are far superior to most disposable fashion that you will find on the High Street today, which is why so many vintage pieces have stood the test of time and are still being worn by stylish people of all ages without looking dated. Frock Around The Clock is great starting place to find fabulous vintage style, both for your wardrobe and your home. We do the hard work for you and source stunning 20th century fashion, accessories and home decor so it is all at your fingertips; saving you hours of hard work sifting through tired and uninspiring rails of donated clothing in endless charity shops and the disappointment of receiving a package from eBay to find that the prom dress that you won at auction doesn't fit, has a great big hole, or just doesn't look like it did on your computer screen.We also have hand made clothing, accessories and jewellery created by ethical local designers who re-use and upcycle a variety of vintage textiles.

We love glamour at Frock Around The Clock, but we also love the environment. Come along to our Vintage Fashion and Textile Fair this Sunday 9th May and find out how beautiful and green vintage shopping can be. So, what can you expect to find? 

We offer an unrivalled selection of vintage treasures. 40+ vintage sellers from Dublin to Derry will be selling vintage fashion and accessories from the 1920s to the 1980s, glittering and sparkling costume jewellery, and stunning handcrafted items created from vintage textiles. You can also pick up vintage homewares including china, ceramics and glass, upcycled furniture pieces, vintage vinyl, curious curios, and much more! A Vintage Collectors Paradise!
