Along with the rest of the fash’un world, last week I was eagerly waiting for the Archive by Alexa collection to drop into Marks and Sparks stores. After spotting the link on the Twittersphere early one morning I got browsing and wasn’t disappointed. I was particularly happy to spot a skirt not too dissimilar to the one I had picked up the Saturday before in my local Sue Ryder for £3. The Lydia Skirt is styled on the M&S with an equally as beautiful blue cardigan (The Bertha Cardi). I will be heading straight to the knitwear rails in the charity shops for the next few weeks to search for a the perfect flashy cardigan I can team with my latest Sue Ryder purchase.
Tomorrow marks the start of Fashion Revolution Week providing us with the perfect opportunity to ask brands #whomademyclothes? Last year I posted my own version of a haulternative, a collection of my favourite second-hand purchases from the previous 12 months. I’m hoping to do the same this year. There are loads of ways to get involved in Fashion Revolution Week, from attending events to find out a little more to putting your clothes on inside out (on purpose!) with the label visible, tagging the brand on social media and asking where their clothes are made. Fashion Revolution is all about encouraging transparency in the fashion industry following the collapse of the Rana Plaza 3 years ago.
Will you be joining the Fashion Revolution?
