WHO WE ARE

Clothes Doctor was founded by Lulu O’Connor in 2017. We are a platform to help people extend the life of their clothes by cleaning, protecting, repairing and altering, the way our parents and grandparents did. 


Our belief is that, due to the rise of fast fashion, consumers across the Western World have lost touch with these important skills. There is so little information available on the possibilities for repairing garments, and care labels often default to ‘dry clean only’ as a catch-all for how to clean silk, cashmere, wool and many other fabrics. 


With our products, services and advice, we help people reconnect with their clothing and love their wardrobe again.


WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE? 


We believe that every new garment should be a friend for life, not a one hit wonder; so we’re here to bring back the pleasure of giving new life to your clothes.


By extending the life of your clothes by 9 months, you can reduce their carbon, water, and landfill footprint by up to 30%. 


With our fabulous team of seamstresses, our eco friendly detergents, and plastic free clothing care products, we give you the tools you need to join the slow fashion revolution.
