Weymouth's Re-Cy-Cool and Honnor & Queens are teaming up for Chick Fest, where women can learn to look great for less. Re-Cy-Cool sells repurposed clothing, and Honnor & Queens makes jewellery and headdresses from recycled materials.

Sustainable Style on a Budget

The event, free and open to all, will be held at the Lugger Inn in Chickerell on Sunday, March 24th, from 6 pm to 8 pm.

Charmaine Walby, founder of Re-Cy-Cool, explains their mission: "We're all about making women of all ages feel amazing while promoting sustainability. Our clothes and accessories won't cost the Earth, literally! We know times are tough, so we want to show you can look incredible without spending a fortune. Everything we offer is 100% recycled because sustainability matters. We source all our items right here in Dorset."

Giving Discarded Materials a New Life

Alison Honnor, founder of Honnor & Queens, brings her own passion for sustainability to the table. "We grew up valuing sustainable practices, so it's second nature to us," she says. "Climate change is a pressing issue, and the fashion industry plays a big role. Honnor & Queens creates one-of-a-kind headdresses from forgotten materials, giving them a fresh purpose and a touch of magic."

The "Honnor & Queens/Re-Cy-Cool Experience"

Honnor elaborates on the unique experience they offer: "When our two businesses combine, it's something special. We call it the Honnor & Queens/Re-Cy-Cool experience. We love helping our customers create diverse looks. Upbeat music adds to the fun; it's a chance to sing along, socialise, and shop – basically, a fun night out!" So come on down for some guilt-free retail therapy at Chick Fest. Feel free to dress up – the organisers will be sparkling for the occasion!
