It’s the year of the bandana, according to InStyle Magazine. This unisex fashion accessory replaced the flower crown as the ubiquitous flourish at Coachella this year. It makes sense; unlike a flower crown, bandanas are useful — you can’t wipe your nose, mop your brow or keep sweat from running into your eyes with a bunch of daisies.
Revelry Boutique Gallery and the Anchal Project are seizing upon this opportunity, just in time for this weekend’s Forecastle Festival, to highlight this longtime staple for cowboys and hippy chicks. The first-ever “Festival Fashion For Good” will be held on Wednesday, July 13, at Revelry in NuLu from 6-9 p.m.
Stylists will be on hand to get you festival-ready for the weekend. Miranda McDonald of The Chic Street and Josh Johnson of The Kentucky Gent will help you pick out an Anchal Project Banana Scarf and other local, sustainable duds to suit your style and support good causes.
“We are excited to partner with one of our favorite local boutiques and retail partners, Revelry,” said Colleen Clines, Anchal’s co-founder and CEO, in a press release. “Festival season is such a fun time to experiment with your style, and we want to help guests express their individuality with our one-of-a-kind pieces that are changing lives.”
Anchal is a social enterprise that employs exploited women worldwide and gives them the skills to create sustainable, natural home goods and accessories.
Also on hand will be a henna tattoo artist and representatives from the Forecastle Foundation.
