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 repairing, altering, restoring and caring for their wardrobe, 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 thrill of giving new life to your clothes!
We are constantly striving for more conscious consumption habits to prevent more clothing from ending up in landfill. By extending the life of your clothes by 9 months, you can reduce their carbon, water, and landfill by up to 30%, so our goal is to change mindsets and time horizons, and help drive the movement towards reducing fashion pollution and waste.
