We posted a few weeks ago about Oxfam’s #SecondHandSeptember – a bold initiative backed by stylist Bay Garnett tackling fast fashion by getting people to pledge to buy only second-hand clothes this September. Excitingly the campaign has been bolstered by the support of This Much I Know – the instagram news platform – who have been busy cajoling lots of celebs into taking part. TMIK founder Emily Sheffield (ex-Vogue) has sifted through her wardrobe and pledged items from her Vogue days, plus there are donations from Paloma Faith, Rachel Weisz, Alexandra Shulman, Henry Holland, Lily Cole, Bella Freud, Louise Roe, Georgia Toffolo, Pixie Geldof and more. These pieces will all go live for just 24 hours on Vestiaire Collective on Thursday 19 September. Make sure you’re signed up ahead so that you can buy – all proceeds will go to Oxfam, who do great work for the fashion industry not only via their charity shops but they also don’t let a single piece of clothing go into landfill – items that aren’t sold are sent to their super waste saver centre in Yorkshire that extracts all the fabrics. More big names yet to be announced – so be sure to set an alarm to shop the ultimate second hand designer sale.
