Re-Kånken: Fashion Meets Compassion

Without Nature We’re Nothing. That’s the slogan of Fjällräven’s new Re-Kånken and it’s completely true. Without the trees, we wouldn’t be able to breathe. Without streams and rivers, thousands would dehydrate. Without plants and healthy soil, we would all starve. Our planet is a precious thing.

Yes I know it’s not winter just yet but it might be a good idea to start stocking up on warmer, winter clothing now whilst the sales are on and before shops start having a ‘supply and demand’ problem.Now, like most girls, I love shopping. It is fun, therapeutic and…

Student Hub visits Ark

During the Student Hub in The Light, Leeds, Student Wire had the pleasure of playing dress up in Ark Clothing. Now, as a self confessed fashion lover I have to admit, so far in my year and a month living in Leeds, I’d never been to the store. So, on the Friday afternoon I took a break from flagging people down for freebies in the Courtyard of The Light to head to Ark with 3 of my friends. When you first walk into the store you’re greeted by creative window displays and an entire section dedicated to the new favourite for…
