From the 14th-17th November, you’ll be able to get your hands on some stylish pre-loved garms in Love not Landfill’s pop-up shop in Seven Dials, whilst helping to support the fight against clothing waste.
With a helping hand from some super fashionable influencers, who have each hand-picked 500 items from their chosen charities, you’re guaranteed to find a gem or two.
Love not Landfill encourages Londoners to donate, swap, or borrow unwanted clothes rather them throw them away. They believe every piece of fabric can be recycled: either it can be worn again or recycled into something new.
The clothing industry has a huge carbon footprint - it is estimated that £140 million worth of clothing goes into landfill each year. But how can you help? Start by refreshing your wardrobe from this pop-up boutique rather than your local high street chain.
We all know the feeling that some of the clothes in your wardrobe just aren’t feeling the love anymore. Pack them up, bring them with you and drop them off so they can find a new home. If you love something, let it go, right?
There will even be a Clothes Doctor stand (14th Nov), offering alterations and introducing us all to the world of up-cycling. Watch out London, there’s a sustainable fashion storm coming your way!
And for those of you suffering the dreaded ‘nothing to wear’ moment (we’ve all been there), Fiona Short will be hosting a styling competition (16th Nov) to get you inspired whilst surrounded with awesome, second-hand fashion at a bargain price.
Both mens and womenswear are available.
Store Opening times: Thursday 14th November, 11am-9pm Friday 15th November, 10am-8pm Saturday 16th November, 11am-8pm Sunday 17th November, 11am-6pm
