Autumn fashion hits the shops

With the last Summer days drawing in, our shops are starting to fill up with wonderful Autumn fashion.

This season, we’re venturing from the typical maroon palette to embrace the boldness of red and orange! Or, why not throw it back to the 70s and snap up some trendy flairs.

The coffee shop is based next door to our Horfield shop at 313 Gloucester Road. As well as serving delicious drinks and tasty food, all the proceeds from Nonesuch Cup go towards supporting care in Bristol through St Peter’s Hospice.

With a secret courtyard garden out the back, Nonesuch Cup is the perfect place to relax after doing some shopping, or catch up with friends over a hot brew.

Fashion students upcycle donations

A group of Bristol students has been given the chance to design their own clothes and learn the art of window dressing in a joint venture between Creative Youth Network and St Peter’s Hospice.

The Creative Careers scheme, run by the Kingswood-based charity Creative Youth Network, gives young people aged 16-25 the chance to get real hands-on experience within creative industries as well as earning a qualification. The latest course has focused on the fashion industry with participants learning about designing, styling, upcycling, stock management, visual merchandising and window dressing.

Using clothes donated to our shops that we were unable to sell, students upcycled their own garments with advice from Louisa Jones, owner of Dutty on Cheltenham Road. The results were some really unique and stylish outfits which the students have displayed in the windows of our shops in Westbury-on-Trym, Henleaze, Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Horfield and Ashton. Upcycling kindly donated garments is a great way to create new products and give our loyal customers the best value for money

Shop Assistant in Top Model Final

A St Peter’s Hospice shop assistant has made it to the finals of a nationwide top model search, taking place in London this March.

Emily Ball, 21, from Chipping Sodbury, is used to sorting clothing donations and creating window displays at her job in our Yate shop. But now Emily will be modelling clothes herself as she takes part in the leading model search competition Top Model UK.

Having already competed against hundreds of girls for a place in the final, Emily will be judged in the Commercial category against 27 other models from across the country, at a glittering finale taking place at the Hilton Metropole, London on 13 March.

Emily said “it’s definitely going to be a bit of a change from my day job at the St Peter’s Hospice shop!”

Emily continued: “I love working at the Hospice shop as I’ve been really lucky to get some experience doing the visual merchandising, which I love. The managers have recognised my passion for styling and fashion and I’ve really enjoyed creating the window displays and putting outfits together. In a charity shop you can find some real hidden gems.”
