Fashion On Location

If you are on your travels throughout the UK, the chances are you will probably come across some kind of sustainable fashion. Oldham Street in Manchester's City Centre is no exception. 

Walking down the street, creativity pours from the drains. You will find a whole host of vintage shops filled with masses of vinyl, fiction, brogues, and shift dresses. It is this street in Manchester that is home to not one, but two, Oxfam Stores including Oxfam Originals and Oxfam Emporium.

Winter is well and truly on it's way and the high street is preparing in the form of chunky coats and heaps of knitwear. Oxfam Originals is constantly gaining new coats to allow you to find your unique bargain that stands out from the crowd. 

If you've checked Instagram, Twitter or any fashion magazine in the past few weeks, one thing you'll notice is prints. Gingham, paisley, polka dot and more, from Marc Jacobs to Topshop Unique, your printed treasures could be found on Oldham Street. 

Oxfam Emporium at the top of Oldham Street is a blast from the past. Rows of vinyl, ranging from Elvis to the beloved Blondie, fill the shelves and I also found some major back-to-school bargains in there by stocking up on books from classics to current. 

There are plenty of places to eat and drink both night and day. Anything you are looking for, from craft supplies to the quirkiest clutch, could be found on Oldham Street. For a mix of fashion and the daily necessities, Oldham Street is by far, one of the coolest places to hang out and shop.
