Alexandra commented “We were delighted to win the 2019 Keswick Live Advent Window. This year we designed the window using recycled fabrics and as such it was totally plastic-free and so fitted in well not only with Sustainable Keswick values but also our shop values where we constantly strive and campaign for increased sustainability in the fashion industry.”

Vanessa added “It was another fantastic year for Keswick Live Advent. It just seems to keep getting better and better. It is especially nice to see local businesses and other local organisations working together. We had some fantastic events and window displays this year and the Live Advent Window Trail proved incredibly popular. A huge thank you to everyone who took part and congratulations to Alexandra’s of Keswick. We are already looking forward to what Live Advent 2020 will bring”
