Barb from Victoria's Closet

About Victoria's Closet

Barb has been operating Victoria’s Closet for the last two and a half years, and in that time, it has grown remarkably. Her journey from chef to sustainable fashion advocate is both inspiring and a testament to her dedication to combating the waste generated by fast fashion.

According to Barb, not everything has to be new – a philosophy she embodies and promotes tirelessly. She believes that you don’t need a new dress for every occasion; instead, you can refresh your look with a new belt, accessories, or even by modifying an existing item.

Before launching Victoria’s Closet, Barb had a successful career as a chef. However, her true passion lay in pre-loved clothing, a passion she could no longer ignore. With a keen eye for fashion and a commitment to sustainability, Barb began collecting unique pieces and curating outfits that reflect her personal style. Her daily fashion combinations always showcase the beauty and potential of second-hand clothing.

With the unwavering support of her friends, Barb turned her dream into a reality, and Victoria’s Closet was born. From the outset, Barb has maintained a commitment to keeping her prices affordable, ensuring that sustainable fashion is accessible to everyone. The items in her shop are in immaculate condition, handpicked and carefully curated to offer quality and style without compromising on sustainability. 

Victoria’s Closet continues to grow, attracting a loyal customer base who share Barb’s vision for a more sustainable world. Her shop has become a beacon of eco-conscious fashion, demonstrating that second-hand clothing can be both fashionable and environmentally responsible.

At the upcoming River Festival's Thrift It marketplace, visitors will have the opportunity to explore Barb’s unique collection from Victoria’s Closet.
