Join In Our Get The Trend Workshops By Love Your Clothes

Charity Fashion Love has been and gone, and we’re sad to wave goodbye to another brilliant event celebrating the versatility, beauty and fun of pre-loved shopping.

Once again we were blown away by the speed and flair with which Stylist and CFL Founder, Emma recreated London Fashion Week looks, solely using items found in one Barnardo’s store. The buzz of event day and general excitement of everyone taking part, was infectious, and we hope you’ve all been inspired to make pre-loved your first love when it comes to to shopping for clothes!

The action isn’t over though, as we have been holding some free drop-in workshops with Barnardo’s, in three of their London stores. The workshops focus on different trends we’ve seen during London Fashion Week and are bound to help keep you up to date!

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!
