Fashion Re:Boot comes to Brighton

Calling all fashion and interiors obsessives to buy, sell and gather

This month, for the very first time, the popular preloved and ethical fashion event Fashion Re:Boot comes to Brighton. On Thursday 26th July, high-end bargain hunters will descend on the iconic The Grand Hotel to buy direct from bloggers, journalists, stylists and brands.

More than 20 Re:Boot events have taken place across the country in the last year, in cities including Ipswich, Oxford, Manchester and Dublin. At Brighton Fashion Re:Boot, homewares make their debut and will be available to buy alongside coveted fashion items.

There will be between 20-30 stalls, with 15 local bloggers already confirmed including Hannah Crosskey, Atosa Nikkah (My Bubba & Me), Maxine Brady (We Love Home Blog) and Jasmin Robertson (Brick Dust Baby). 

Fashion Re:Boot is the brainchild of fashion editor Erica Davies and magazine editor Ciara Elliott. Set up as a way of finding a use for the excess high‐end fashion Erica and Ciara were receiving, it’s taken the imagination of women around the country. 

Erica Davies, who has notched up over 100K Instagram followers says: “Fashion Re:Boot is an ethical and sustainable fashion and interiors marketplace run by bloggers for bloggers, and anyone who wants to grab a bargain. It’s a pre-loved sale, a way of decluttering your wardrobe, refreshing your look, boosting your confidence and making the most of your money all at the same time. What’s not to love?!”

So if you love clothes, homewares, car boot sales and ebay, or just fancy the idea of meeting the people you follow on Instagram, this is the event for you. 

Whether buying or selling, or simply getting together for a fun evening out, entry is £5. The first 100 through the door will receive a free drink from the event sponsors, Adnams. Food and drink will be available to buy on the evening, and the organisers have some extra fashion surprises in store too. 

See the Fashion Re:Boot Instagram and Facebook for more information. Local blogger Deborah Simpson Boston is co-hosting the event.

Pitches for fashion or homeware brands/stores are £25 with discounted stalls for Brighton bloggers.

Footasylum set to be newest addition at Churchill Square

Lovers of stylish footwear and apparel are going to love the latest addition to Churchill Square, as Footasylum is set to be the newest store at the Brighton shopping centre.

Located in the former Zara unit, Footasylum is a new name in the retail landscape in Brighton and will be home to some of the hottest names in sportswear and casual fashion, including Nike, The North Face, New Balance, Converse, Vans, Under Armour and more.

Churchill Square Centre Director, Mark Buchanan-Smith, said he was thrilled that Footasylum would be the latest new arrival at the centre. “I’m delighted that we are able to add such a popular, well-known brand to our retail offering at Churchill Square,” said Mark.

“We’re always striving to ensure that we have the best possible retail options for our shoppers and in the past year we’ve welcomed a number of new names to the centre including Krispy Kreme and iSmash, along with Zara moving into a new, larger space, so I’m pleased that Footasylum will be joining the line-up here.

“It is an extremely exciting brand and a name that I’m sure will prove extremely popular, especially with some of our younger shoppers. I’m looking forward to announcing an opening date in the not too distant future.”

Anthony Potts, Retail Marketing Manager for Footasylum, said: “We pride ourselves on being a dynamic, adaptive and fast-moving business with a strong competitive position and great stable of brands. Brighton is a young and fashion-forward city so we’re delighted to be opening at Churchill Square. It is a fantastic site with access to a large proportion of our target customers.”

Footasylum will be opening at Churchill Square later this summer. For more information about the store and to find out about Footasylum’s job opportunities, alongside the latest updates from Churchill Square, shoppers should head to and stay tuned to the centre’s social media pages and
