The Charity Fashion Live A/W 17 Look Book

On Saturday, we set ourselves the challenge of recreating London Fashion Week looks, in real time as they came out on the catwalk, using only what we could find in Barnardo’s Brixton charity shop!

As is customary for the Charity Fashion Live show, it was a mad dash of a day! Colourful to say the least – complete with neon coloured wigs (we actually found a huge box of wigs in the basement!), outlandish floral appliqué and bold texture clashes waltzing down our runway.

We love that we had so much support from you guys on social media as we rushed around recreating looks inspired by ChalayanRyan LoJasper ConranMolly Goddard, Henry Holland and many more.

We’d love to know which were your favourite looks of the day… Was it one of our outlandish colour riot Ryan Lo recreations, or maybe our take on Jasper Conran? Tell us in the comments over on instagram @charityfashionlive or give us a shout on @CharityFashLive on twitter – we’re dying to know!!

Be sure to check out our short fashion film for a sneaky peak behind the scenes and all the runway fun on the day!
