It may be day three of my challenge for Labour Behind the Label, but it really only got challenging today on the first day of London Fashion Week.
For some reason it felt like my first day at school. Perhaps it’s because when you’re a kid you get away with wearing your favourite green dress again and again, but as adults, and particularly women, we are encouraged to reinvent ourselves on the regular. Perhaps it felt like school because this task is teaching me about my approach to fashion and encouraging me to question: “What do I want my wardrobe to be when I graduate in six weeks time?”
I chose both the ’50s dress from Gabriele Vintage (pictured above) and the Gap raincoat that doubles as a dress as my 5th and 6th items – editing out another dress instead. The rules state that you are allowed one coat on top of your six items, so mine is this pre-loved Celine jacket from Vestiaire Collective. Boots are from my local Trinity Hospice.
