Better the Devil You Sew Launch

Posted by Kelly OConnor Digital and Events Marketing Coordinator

23rd Jul 2012

A unique clothing collection made by Brighton's Oxfam North Street volunteers launched on Friday.

The Better the Devil You Sew range is hand-crafted with care and enthusiasm by the Oxfam Sewing Club: A group of extremely enthusiastic and talented volunteers making clothes out of damaged donated clothing and fabric which would otherwise be unsuitable for sale. Some pieces are made new, others made better, and each piece is one of a kind - a unique piece of ethical fashion.

Many Fashion brands claim sustainability, however, few reuse existing garments and transform to extend their lives. Proceeds of sales go to Oxfam's development programmes around the world transforming people's lives by finding lasting solutions to poverty and suffering.

Not only is this range individual and unique, the range has a fashion forward appeal. Each piece has been constructed with careful study of this summer's key trends such as ombre, 90s revival, grunge and hipster - with more than a nod to Brighton festival chic!

Ethical fashion shoppers get those pennies out and head to Oxfam North Street for a look! Be the first to own one of these new designer pieces at affordable prices.
