The Théâtre La Bordée will organize a costume designer sale on June 14 and 15. Various clothes, from old costumes, will be put on sale. It is also a good opportunity to find unique pieces and to discover this cultural place in a different way.

La Fripe express: Costume designer sale will take place on Friday June 14 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., but also on Saturday June 15 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The sale will take place in the lobby of the Théâtre de La Bordée.

“There are a few pieces mainly from last season, like the piece Heimat/Revenir, among others,” reveals Élodie Cossette-Plamondon, responsible for audience development and special projects.

“They are partly clothes from the 80s and 90s. »

Clothing, accessories, shoes and hats will be on sale.

“Some spectators may recognize pieces from last season. It’s a great anecdote to have a piece of clothing that has a story,” she says.

This thrift store will feature unique pieces with prices ranging in part from $5 to $15. Some garments will sometimes display a different price, depending on the color displayed.

Attract an audience differently

For La Bordée, this costume designer’s sale is a different way of attracting people from the neighborhood or surrounding areas.

“La Bordée is a civic and popular theater. The goal is to reach out to people in Lower Town and the Saint-Roch district,” says Ms. Cossette-Plamondon.

“By doing a thrift store, we attract people who have never been to the theater. It allows us to discover our cultural place. »

This also gives young companies the opportunity to come and get clothing at a lower cost.

The theater wants to highlight the eco-responsible aspect of this thrift store.

“Our theater is in an eco-responsible process. We have just put in place a three-year action plan. The thrift store fits well with the new mission that we are tending to develop at La Bordée,” she explains.

In his eyes, “the thrift store also allows spectators to be involved and to follow the theater in this eco-responsible approach by favoring second-hand pieces”.

“At La Bordée, we find that thrift shopping is a friendly option too. I think there will be more, because we continue to accumulate clothes quite quickly. It’s better that it can circulate instead of letting it all get stuck in the costumer,” concludes Élodie Cossette-Plamondon.
