London Fashion Week & Charity Shop Shopping?

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.


Have you heard of Back of the Wardrobe? Neither had I, or realised London Fashion Week is upon us until I was contracted to ask if I would mind giving a shout out for this great collaborative project.

On Saturday September 13th, Emma will be recreating London Fashion Week looks live, on the spot, just moments after they appear on the SS15 LFW live stream – using ONLY clothes she finds in a Red Cross charity shop on the day. 

Catwalk Comparisons

These are examples of the looks she created last year, amazing. A fantastic way to raise the profile of charity shop shopping, extending the lives of clothes and giving money to good causes.

“1 million tonnes of clothes go to landfill each year. Fast fashion has created climate in which people have a throwaway relationship with their clothes. As a result of this people and the environment are readily exploited by the garment industry” Emma Slade Edmondson

“If we all extended the active use of our clothes for just three months, we cut each cut down on our carbon and water and waste footprint by up to 10%”

Stay tuned to @Backofwardrobe, @BritishRedCross, and on Saturday the 13th September 2014 to see the #LFWBOW ensembles as they materialise and watch the new film as soon as it’s released.
