Fashion For Change is an easier way to for any fashion lover to recycle their designer or more luxury style clothes in order to make a donation for any important cause that you care about. You could be the person that changes the life of somebody.
Turning fashion into funds is known as 'Fripping' and Fashion For Change is the first online boutique which offers you the chance to turn your fashion into funds. 'Fripping' was started off when they first launched as an online clothes site called clothesagency.com; with the goal to raise thousands for their charity partners. Things have now kicked off to a flying start and Fashion For Change has been launched to work even harder on what they already have and make an even bigger impact gloabally by raising millions for different charities around the world.
So, how does it work? It's simple.
1) Go through your wardrobe and select any unwanted designer or luxury items that you no longer wear, fit or like. It could be those size 6 stiletto heels that you picked up on a whim what you only wore the once because they was mega uncomfortable to walk in. Maybe even that luxury leather skirt that has been tight for years? Whatever it may be; fre up your wardrobe!
2) Fashion For Change will pick up your unwanted items for free, photograph them and then sell them on.
3) 60% of the sale goes to your chosen charity.
What would be your chosen charity? Whatever it is, just know that every penny that is made from your unwanted donations will make a huge difference. Fashion For Change have launched a Crowdfunding campaign to reach out to a bigger audience and spread the word. The pledge is to raise £300,000 within the next 20 days. If they don’t hit their target then no investments will be taken. This will change the fashion industry completely in so many ways by allowing us to select where our donation goes, the amounts we raise and the impact we make.
Only we can make a change and as little as £10 can be donated towards the funding for this incredible campaign. For more information, you can watch this video of Fashion For Change's founder, Isla D'Aubigny, where she explains everything in more detail.
Let's make a change.
