The Clothes And The Rest podcast is an online space that celebrates ethical fashion and the slow fashion movement.

In this episode Lulu and Holly discuss all things clothes maintenance - what you can do yourself, quick fixes and well as what’s best left to the professionals.


Clothes And The Rest is a podcast and online space celebrating ethical fashion. Founded by fashion journalist Holly Bullock, Clothes And The Rest spotlights creatives flouting the conventional path of mass consumerism, in favour of a more considered approach to style.

Interviewing champions of sustainability, the podcast aims to shed new light on the slow fashion movement, and inspire listeners to live more consciously. Clothes Doctor founder Lulu O’Connor was the latest guest chatting about clothes maintenance and sustainable fashion.

She explains why Clothes Doctor is convenient when you don’t have time for DIY fixes or even own a needle and thread. And if there was one thing she’d want all her customers to know is the secret about zips!

“We replace zips all the time, but sometimes a zip isn’t actually broken, it’s just stiff. If you take a pencil, and rub the lead up and down a zip, that can really loosen it up. Even if it feels as if it’s not moving at all, it may not need replacing.”
