Tonne of Clothes at Brighton Fashion Week
Ever wondered what a tonne of clothes looks like? Find out in our round up of our event for Brighton Fashion Week, 15-17 October 2015. In partnership with Cancer Research UK, we held workshops, demos and the Fashion Salvage challenge in Brighton Open Market.
A little TLC helps our clothes look good and last longer - from finding time to 'have-a-go' at getting out a stain to following the washing instructions on the label.
Avoiding and dealing with clothes moths
Many of us have encountered problems with moths making holes in our clothes – especially woollen garments. Try our tips to avoid them!

We are all guilty of buying too many clothes. Why not make the most of the ones you already have?
Capsule wardrobe fun
Most people think capsule means ‘less clothes to choose from’. And they’d be right – but it’s not as scary as you may think! Stick with us on this…
File dress under 'D'
Organising your clothes doesn’t have to be strict and regimented, but knowing where all your clothes are is actually pretty useful.
Pass on any unwanted items for re-use or resale - and if they can't be used again, all clothes can be recycled.
If your clothes are in good condition then they’re likely to be of value to someone else – meaning there’s money to be made!
Passing on unwanted clothing is a good way of maximizing its use and getting more value out of it.
There are lots of ways to get better value for money from your clothes, leaving money in your pocket.
It's good to share
From sharing great fashion tips with friends to actually sharing and borrowing items from one another is a brilliant way to keep your wardrobe fresh and save money too.
Buy pre-owned or vintage clothes
Buying pre-owned clothes is a fabulous way to try new looks for a fraction of the high street price.
