Organised by the Irish Label Archive, this tour will take in three of the city’s independent vintage shops and hear stories of the markets and shops of past eras. Iveagh. Dandelion. Liberty. Markets familiar to generations of Dubliners who bought and sold antiques, bric a brac and second hand clothing. For some it was a hobby, for others a necessity. The city’s vibrant market culture thrived in the 20th century & despite a resurgence of pop up markets in the 2010s, has now largely disappeared. In an era of fast fashion, the slow fashion movement asks us to consider “who made my clothes?” The mass production of cheap clothing abroad means a ‘Made in Ireland’ label is almost an artefact. On our walk we’ll recall the markets & shops of past eras.
