Oxfam Fashion blogger

Linsey is a jackette of all trades. She has previously worked as a dance music specialist in an independent record shop, designed and made handbags and accessories and worked on fashion and music events in the UK and internationally. She is most likely to be found riding her bike, walking in the countryside, rummaging around charity shops, stitching up a storm on her sewing machine, or daydreaming of her next adventure. 

With a love of fashion and customization, she sees the power of potential in clothing. One of her big passions is travel and she loves meeting new people, taking photographs of the details in the everyday and using all these influences to inspire her next design, idea or blog post.
