  • Founded in 2018 by Irish broadcaster, Lorraine Keane in partnership with Oxfam, Fashion Relief has become one of Ireland's biggest fashion fundraisers - that offers people the unique opportunity to bag a bargain from the wardrobe of their style icon or beloved brand, boutique or designer. Fashion Relief has since rolled out annual events in Dublin, Cork and Galway, and more recently it pivoted to an online interactive shopping platform –  Fashion Relief also part of Oxfam’s solution to ‘throwaway fashion’, encouraging people to donate pre-loved items rather than binning them. Retailers are also supported to donate their end-of-line or excess stock instead of sending it to landfill – a more sustainable solution for people and planet. 
  • All profits support Oxfam’s work in some of the world’s poorest countries, helping people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive as well as saving lives when disaster strikes. Since its inception, Fashion Relief has raised nearly €270,000 for Oxfam’s work. 
  • Fashion Relief Donation Drive: Email to order your pre-paid and addressed Fashion Relief donation bag. People can donate up to 12 items at a time and once their donations are packaged up all they need to do is bring them to their local post office and they will be winging their way to the Fashion Relief team. 
  • Fashion Relief at Frascati Centre Blackrock: Lorraine Keane’s Fashion Relief with Oxfam will have a pop-up shop in the newly renovated Frascati Centre, Blackrock once Covid restrictions are lifted. The shop will boast rail after rail of brand-new and pre-loved donated clothes, shoes and accessories, offering a more sustainable way to shop, while also supporting Oxfam’s global work to beat poverty.
