Style me in seconds - How we used secondhand clothes for a fashion photo shoot


Way back in 2014 when I did my first year of saying no to new clothes, I wanted to highlight just how good preloved clothing was.  I had an idea to create some magazine worthy images of gorgeous models, all dressed in secondhand clothes.

With the help of some very talented friends, we used clothes from our dress agency, from charity shops and borrows to dress our real models in amazing outfits.   Going back over those images again, I'm reflecting on how far our mission to share preloved clothes as a way to create a beautiful and sustainable wardrobe has come, and how many more people are now open to the idea of shopping secondhand rather than new. 

What I think the images show is that using preloved clothing can be a fun way to create amazing outfits that don't cost the earth, both in the financial and environmental senses.  It also shows the variety and quality of what is available secondhand.  Have a look at the images and see what you think:
