Dublin shoppers will likely remember Carousel, the colourful boutique that sat on the corner of Drury Street and Clarendon Street for many years until just last summer. Their bold window displays filled with vintage-inspired frocks were always eye-catching. The Irish retailer has since moved exclusively online, where it sells a range of 1950s style clothing and accessories.
Since 2014, Carousel has worked closely with the Good Earth India factory in Delhi, where their vintage-inspired collection, ‘Circus’ is manufactured. Due to the current crisis in India, friends and families of the factory workers that Carousel work with have been severely affected by the second surge of Covid-19 cases.
To offer their support, Carousel is running a sample sale in aid of The Hope Foundation Ireland where 100% of proceeds will be donated to the ongoing running costs of their hospital in Kolkata, India. Each sample costs €12.50 with 100% of proceeds going to The Hope Foundation Ireland.
Carousel has sold over 100 pieces so far, and has raised just under €1000 in the last two weeks. The goal is to raise between €2500 and €3000 for The Hope Foundation. You can shop the sale on www.ilovecarousel.com where new stock will be added over the coming days and weeks until Carousel reaches its donation goal.
