Circular fashion in the heart of Semaphore!
Do you only wear a small portion of your wardrobe? Do the rest of your clothes hang longingly in the closet, sit boxed away in a spare room, or hide vacuum sealed under the bed? Clothes tell your story, and as that story progresses, so does your style.
We are all ‘works in progress’ and many clothes in our wardrobe are no longer the right fit, figuratively or literally. Our identities, personalities and bodies evolve and our wardrobes capture and document these journeys.
We have spent time with these items, we’ve loved them. But perhaps they don’t serve our purpose any longer, and it’s time to give them a chance for a new life! These items can continue to benefit us, by giving them a chance at a new life and giving us some extra cash at the same time. Here’s how!
Circular Fashion in Semaphore
Who are we?
ReFAB has been born out of a long term love of clothes. We value clothes and wish for the life of clothes to be extended. We have experience of being on both sides of the sewing machine, and appreciate the expertise, skills and resources required to create a garment.
We follow a circular business model, which simply means we enable clothes to be reloved, rather following a linear fashion model where the clothes are made, purchased and often discarded.
Who are we for?
ReFAB is for anyone who supports or wants to learn about sustainable fashion, and wishes to purchase fabulous and high quality, unique items at a very reasonable price.
ReFAB is for anyone who has invested in their clothes and feels their clothes are worthy of being re-loved and too good to discard. Here you get to set up your own sales rack-a-rack without the hassle of selling from home or online.
Where are we?
Located a short walk from the Semaphore foreshore, we are located in the heart of Semaphore Road South Australia. Surrounded by food and fashion, popping in is a lovely treat on your way to or from the trendy cafes and op-shops that call Semaphore home. Make a day of it, help the environment and feel good about contributing less waste.
What does ReFAB offer?
ReFAB is designed to help you in two ways. The first way is to indulge your love of browsing and buying. Feeling the fabric, finding the perfect outfit at the perfect price that’s just been waiting for you. Enjoying the experience of being surprised as you find the perfect accessory, a sense of curiosity and delight.
The second way is the opportunity to sell your clothes and find them a loving new home. The clothes need to be contemporary and in good condition. Feel empowered as you not only lessen your personal load and contribute to less waste and a sustainable future.
