Whilst skimming a few mags during some downtime over my Easter break I was super impressed by a feature story in one of the publications. Compiled by one of my fav fashion environmentalist writers Kathryn Madden it was a massive push for the recycled & sustainable shopping market.  Of course, preloved fashion is nothing new, but now more than ever we need more of us to embrace the recycling cycle of a garment and be less tempted with fast fashion. She has a great line ‘The devil, it would seem, re-wears Prada!’.
Whilst didn’t get a mention this time, it’s so good to see the rise of resale. Personally, I was always a good thrifter in my younger years. I could never afford those big investment pieces, and the thrill of the hunt for that special piece of gold hidden amongst the racks has never left me even today.
It’s the same thrill I get when I visit my fantastic consignment clients and go through their latest pieces they want to resell. We all get something on a whim that we later decide is not quite right, so why not give someone else the opportunity to hang it in their wardrobe rather than collecting dust in yours.
I know I’m speaking to recycling converts but maybe Mother’s Day is the perfect way to introduce someone special in your life to the feeling that you get when you unwrap a new fav piece and know that you not only look great but can feel good about help push this fashion movement forward?
Keep scrolling for snippet of the bumper crop of new additions perfect for that Mother’s Day gift (even if it is to yo’self!!)
