Farsley boutique owner runs fashion swap fundraiser for brain tumour charity


The owner of an independent ladies’ fashion boutique in Farsley is running her second sustainable fashion event for charity.

Former Foreign Office diplomat Dawn Farr runs Apparel Leeds, which moved into its current premises in Farsley in June 2020, following three years in nearby Stanningley.

Dawn is running the sustainable fashion event on Sunday, 26 March 2023, at Anahata Yoga Studio in Sunny Mank Mills from 12.30pm to encourage people to get involved in fashion swapping. 

“Our first event was a great success,” she said on social media. “Come along, see what the fuss was about. If sustainability in fashion is important to you, you’ll love it! And remember it’s not shopping, it’s swapping! 

Dawn Farr, of Farsley-based Apparel Leeds.

“Now is the perfect time to be looking at your wardrobe and having a clear out in preparation for Spring. You should really love everything in your wardrobe. Clear out anything you no longer wear and let those pieces bring a little bit of joy to someone else.

“Our event brings together two local businesses at the heart of the gorgeous community in Farsley whilst supporting Yorkshire Brain Tumour Charity.”

Tickets for the event are priced £15 and can be bought here.

WLD reported in March 2020 how a fashion show run by Apparel in Pudsey had raised cash for Stanningley-based Wills Way charity.
