A one-year challenge to redress wardrobes, with 12 themes to promote "Redress it, don't bin it".

For August we celebrate sustainable brands and designers
- Chere Di Boscio, founder of @eluxemagazine joins us to share her favourite sustainable brands!

‘In this pic I am wearing a Stella McCartney (@stellamccartney) silk blouse. Her label is 100% vegan friendly and believe she uses peace silk. I am also wearing an Arlette Lee Snugalee (@arlettelee), which is made from 100% alpaca fibres created by Peruvian alpaca herders, as well as jeans I've had since university - well over 15 years ago'. Durability at its best!

Chere also had her nails done with PritiNYC which is a non-toxic nail polish & organic skin care brand.'
