Thanks to all who joined us for a glamorous evening dedicated to the release of a new photo collection produced by Cambridge Carbon Footprint, with funding from Wear it Love it Share it* and in collaboration with Catwalk Cambridge. The photos featured some of this year’s biggest fashion trends created entirely from second-hand clothing and accessories, a real demonstration of how great reusing and restyling clothing can be! The evening featured a fashion show of our amazing second-hand outfits and an extremley popular swishing! Our Second Hand Style project is still getting some great attention and if you missed the event itself, check out some of the photos, videos and media attention we’ve gotten below:
You can a video of the fashion show on YouTube here. Don’t forget to like it!

Our event organiser Stephanie Ferguson went on the Cambridge 105 Breakfast Show to promote the event on 12th March, which you can listen to here.
She also joined Beverly Carpenter of Eco-Salon, another Wear it, Love it, Share it project on 1st April on the Rebel Arts Radio Show on Cambridge 105, a link will be posted soon on this page.

We also couldn’t have made this event or project possible without Catwalk Cambridge. All of the models, hair, make-up and photographer at the event were provided by this local modelling agency: they even built a custom catwalk just for us! Visit them on facebook here.
