Back of the Wardrobe brings London Fashion Week to Oxfam

The Back of the Wardrobe styling team will be bringing London Fashion Week (LFW) to Oxfam Dalston on September 14.


As designers are showcasing their Spring/Summer 2014 looks on the catwalk, stylist Emma Slade will be recreating the looks, just moments after they appear on the LFW live stream, using only the clothing available in Oxfam Dalston.

You'll be able to follow the fast paced action on Back of the Wardrobe's Twitter page. The aim is to show that you don't need a big budget to be on trend, that fashion is for everyone and that clothing reuse can be cooler than you ever imagined.

To get a taste for the action, watch last year's film here.


Here is an outfit Emma put together based on a look from Temperley London:



Why clothing re-use is so important?

If we all extended the active use of our clothes for just three months, we could each cut down on our carbon and water and waste footprint by up to 10%.

And wouldn't it be nice if after we'd exhausted our favorite items, we shared the love and donated them to Oxfam so someone else could love them too?

All clothes featured will be from Oxfam - take a look at the Oxfam Online Shop to refresh your look now.
