Slow Fashion Show 2019 for Exeter Fashion & Beauty Week - Support Sustainability

My Ex Wardrobe was so honoured to be invited back to have clothing walked down the catwalk of this year’s Slow Fashion show held again at the beautiful Exeter Cathedral. Myself and the wonderful stylist had so much fun choosing the outfits to walk down the catwalk and we managed to satisfy her amazing vision.

Our preloved designer items at the Slow fashion show Escada Jumpsuit and two Nikelby’s suits coming soon to our website.

We had some amazing items walk the runway including a vintage purple Escada jumpsuit which went down a storm. This will be available online very soon along with the two Nikelby’s suits. Our stunning brown Liberty of London Coat is already featured online to purchase and was worn in daring fashion with nothing underneath. All the models looked absolutely stunning and carried off each look perfectly thanks again to the stylist who matched each outfit to the correct model to show the look off to the max.

The whole event and fashion show was focused around supporting slow sustainable fashion and making sure we stop living in a throw away fast fashion culture. There were some inspiring talks about how much it actually costs to make a garment properly to last as well as the effect of climate change. One of my favourite stalls was the clothes swap area with many of my guests bringing items they no longer wanted, and leaving with the same number of new items. I also found a stunning sparkly party dress myself. This is a perfect way to renew your wardrobe without spending any money and also not throwing anything away. Items that may be old and boring to you suddenly gain a new lease of life with someone new, and get to be worn in different ways. This helps the landfill clothing issues that have become only too current.

The other way to support slow fashion is to shop in small independent shops for those special items that will last a lifetime, or second hand dress agencies like My Ex Wardrobe. With dress agencies you can also make money from your items that no longer bring you joy, but to someone else they will become part of a whole new wardrobe.

My Ex Wardrobe also had an exhibit stand to sell our designer pre loved items which is what the show was all about. A beautiful Kate Spade bag and a stylish leather jacket found new homes that evening with people excited to own their nearly new purchases.

I am so hopeful to be invited back next year and be sat front row of the wonderful catwalk show supporting independent shops and slow sustainable fashion.
