Fashion Editor Jess Cartner-Morley explores the environmental impact of fast fashion, in her article, ‘The fashion editor eco-makeover: can I rethink my love affair with clothes?’. As a city dwelling, hard-working and fashion loving woman in the 21st century, this article was incredibly relatable. With growing concern around the pollutive impact of textile waste, Jess comes up with practical tips on how we can each do our bit for the planet...and Clothes Doctor got a mention.

Clothes Doctor founder Lulu O’Connor was asked to share her own ideas for the article and focused on reworking and loving our existing wardrobe. Lulu gave the example of transforming an oversized T-shirt into a tapered midi-crop which can be paired with high-waisted trousers and heels.
