This weekend, lucky customers may get a stylish update from style guru Gok Wan’s personal closet.
Along with TV personality Alison Hammond, Sugababes’ Heidi Range, and Love Island‘s Molly Marsh and Adam Collard, Gok has contributed some pre-loved finery for a very unique charity swap shop.
The event begins in Hull, where visitors to Foxy Launderette may upcycle or donate old items for new looks, including the chance to get their hands on fresh outfits and actual celeb apparel.
After Foxy Bingo research found that places like Manchester (30%) and Liverpool (18%) are closely trailing London (59%) in the style stakes, TV stylist Gok is targeting the north and enlisting the support of northern stars.
Northern fashionistas are being lauded for pushing the fashion frontier, with bold (35%), brazen (28%), daring (28%), and brave (26%) style choices, whereas southerners are conservative (23%), predictable (13%), and a little dull (12%).
In a study of 2,000 individuals, puffer coats (24%) topped the list of fashion products associated with the North, followed by parka jackets (20%), leggings (20%), all-in-one tracksuits (20%) and Ugg boots (20%), all of which provide comfort and versatility.
Among the surprises are Gok’s top and jacket, Molly’s much-loved leather jacket, Heidi’s blue velvet blazer, and RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Le Fil’s hand-painted co-ord and glam pink wig.
‘Having shopped and dressed all around the world, I’m thrilled that people are now identifying the north as one of the finest fashion Meccas in the UK,’ Gok added.
The Art of Looking Good Naked host and the Foxy Laundrette crew are bringing the most fashionable and mindful people to Hull.
According to this study, more than a third of Brits are waiting for their ‘glow-up’ moment, so here is your opportunity to get ‘Foxy-fied!’
As well as looking good, visitors to The Foxy Launderette will be doing their bit as all items of clothing donated will support a local charity.
The Foxy Laundrette will be open on Friday, September 29 and Saturday, September 30.
Free tickets are available here on Eventbrite.
