From Whistles to Mulberry, Daks to Paul Smith - the Oxfam shop at Royal Windsor was bursting with fashion gems for women and men.

Get mooching around the rails of course!
I firstly had a look at some of the men's clothes on offer, getting shop...
Spring is here and yet we are still waking up to grey skies and an absence of light and colour. But do not despair, there is at least one place in London where you can get a quick colour fix as well as some creative inspiration.
In the heart of Bermondsey, standing amidst the Dickensian labyrinth of streets, is a colourful building more reminiscent of Mexico or Miami than London: the wonderful Fashion and...

We all love clothes and fashion here at Oxfam, so we thought what better excuse than to hold a fashion show. For weeks the team has been busy sorting through hundreds of clothes and collecting items for sale in our pop-up shop.
We have embraced the Spring/Summer trend of floral pattern with skirts, tops, jackets and dresses covered in flowers and prints. This theme...

I can't tell you how excited I was when I found out that Rumble in the Jumble was happening again this year. The Oxfam Get Together event, hosted by Radio 1's Gemma Cairney and friends, celebrated its second birthday on Saturday 26th January.

We all lead pretty hectic lives nowadays. I know that even when I'm doing nothing, I'm doing something. Waiting for a train, I'll just check what's happening on Twitter. Having a relaxed evening at home, I'll have a movie on while I reply to emails, with Facebook and a bit of online shopping open in the background. I'm never really doing nothing; I'm always connected to the hubbub of the rest of the world.
Creativity was rife at this year's Clothes Show Live, and this was certainly reflected on the Diet Coke Image catwalk.
Graduate students from universities such as Wolverhampton, Falmouth and De Montfort showcased their designs for the Clothes Show Live audience throughout the day.
Designs were greatly varied from unusual bright pieces, to patterned pastels and wearable neutrals.
