Charity Fashion Live: “Get the look: London Fashion Week – The Oxfam Edit”

Love Your Clothes is excited to be supporting Charity Fashion Live 2015, with Oxfam and Recycle for London.

Here’s the lowdown on what’s happening and how to get involved.

Charity Fashion Live sees stylist Emma Slade-Edmondson recreate London Fashion Week looks, just moments after they emerge on the catwalk, using only the second-hand clothing found in one Oxfam shop. It’s a tough challenge – how will she do?

Follow the live action on Twitter (@CharityFashLive) and Instagram (@CharityFashionLive) as the charity shop catwalk unfolds on Saturday 19 September 2015 from 9.00am – 7.00pm. The team will sharing a play-by-play account of the day, the looks, trend predictions and style tips on social media as they go at #CharityFashionLive.

Sounds like fun? Then get involved!

We’ll also be hosting #FashionSalvage events at other London Oxfam shops on the same day. We’ve got a team of designers and upcycling specialists ready to show you how to alter, repair and re-style your clothes. They’ll be on hand to help you add a personal touch to your new pre-loved purchases or to a piece that’s been stuck at the back of your own wardrobe for too long.

  • Head to Oxfam, Covent Garden to meet with founder of Fashion Revolution Day, Orsola de Castro and London designer and queen of crochet, Katie Jones.
  • In Oxfam, Islington the fabulous Fabrications will be holding an upcycling and alterations pop-up.
  • And in Oxfam, Westbourne Grove meet stylist and costume designer Illishio Lovejoy.

Love Your Clothes is thrilled to be supporting The Charity Fashion Live. With trends changing season by season, it can be difficult to keep up, particularly if you don’t have a big budget. But with around 1.1 million tonnes of clothing being discarded every year by UK consumers, there is a treasure trove of clothing out there, available at a fraction of the price. Charity Fashion Live will prove that second hand clothing can be bang on trend.

Tune in to @CharityFashLive and #CharityFashionLive to see the team in full creative flow.
