My Walk in Wardrobe returns to Tōmoana Showgrounds


After a record-breaking event in Hastings last year, My Walk in Wardrobe is back at Tōmoana Showgrounds this month with another showcase of sustainable fashion.

Last year My Walk in Wardrobe attracted 1200 shoppers who spent $32,000 on sustainable fashion at 39 stalls, and owner and founder Katy Pakinga is thrilled to be coming back to Hastings.

“We love having markets here as we always get so much variety at our stalls and love seeing so many sustainable shoppers on the day, usually making a day of it with friends. The vibe is always friendly and warm, even though the weather might not be.”

She said she expected to again attract around 40 stalls offering preloved, vintage, upcycled or handmade (by the seller) clothing, shoes, jewellery and fashion accessories – ranging from kids to adults, with an increasing amount of men’s and plus-size items on offer.

“It's estimated around 180,000 tonnes of clothing and textile waste is dumped in New Zealand landfills every year, so the more we can recirculate, and the less we dump, the better.” 

The event is taking place at the Exhibition Hall on June 10, 10am to 2pm – gold coin entry.
