Stylish residents looking for a new summer wardrobe can now bag the latest trends and help a good cause at the same time.
Barkingside charity Barnardo’s has teamed up with the London College of Fashion for the One of a Kind book, which shows off the unique looks you can create from pre-loved clothes.
It is available at branches in Barkingside High Street, Wanstead High Street, George Lane, South Woodford and Manford Way, Chigwell.
The book hope to inspire fashion lovers everywhere to consider charity shops as a sustainable, ethical and economical shopping destination.
Barnardo’s chief executive Javed Khan said: “Shopping at Barnardo’s helps us achieve our goal to reach and support even more vulnerable children, young people, parents and carers across the UK. We hope our new trend book will continue to inspire and encourage people to visit their local Barnardo’s shop.”
Extending the life of clothing by a further nine months can reduce carbon, waste and water footprints by 20 to 30per cent.
