Second-hand September

Every week 13 million items of clothing ends up in UK landfill. Join Second-hand September and pledge to only buy second-hand for 30 days or more. By shopping with Oxfam, you will be reinvesting your money into helping some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people beat poverty.

Last year I got to work backstage at Oxfam's show at London Fashion Week (February 2019). The show aimed to showcase Oxfam as part of the solution to fast fashion, by giving clothes a second chance to be sold and preventing them ending up in landfill. All the models were styled in Oxfam clothes, selected from the Oxfam Online Shop and Oxfam high street shops by Vogue Contributing Editor Bay Garnett. This month I will be styling new and old charity shop finds, discussing my most loved looks, sharing more tips on how to shop mindfully, and giving details of my favourite thrift shops here in Cardiff.

Models included musician Emeli Sandé, Kesewa Aboah and Lottie Moss.
