We believe that wearing second-hand clothes is not something that should be exclusive to September. Therefore, we are announcing the launch of our second-hand competition which will run throughout October.
Second-hand clothing is a great way to break the chain of fast fashion by recycling and upcycling vintage clothes. Running the whole of October, we want you to show us your best second-hand outfits. Whether it is a vintage coat from your Nan’s wardrobe or a denim coat from your local charity shop, we want to see it!
To enter our competition, tag your second-hand outfits using the hashtag #LRsecondhand. Your outfits do not need to be head to toe in second-hand clothes but you will need at least one second-hand item in the outfit and be sure to mention this in your caption. If you are in need of some inspiration check out the latest article in Issue 54 which gives advice on great items to thrift from charity shops and thrift stores.
The winner will be the person sharing the most daily second-hand outfits during October. So don’t forget to delve through your wardrobe to be in with a chance to win some amazing prizes.
The winner will receive a newly launched London Runway popsocket, logo stickers, and a copy of the November issue. Not only will this issue be in print, but it will also feature a selection of the winner’s photos. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate how second-hand clothes are equally as stylish, but also unique, in comparison to fast fashion pieces. Stand out of the crowd by styling second-hand clothes!
If you have always wanted to feature in a fashion magazine now is your chance. By supporting the wearing of second-hand clothing not only are you choosing to support a sustainable lifestyle, but you can also look stylish while helping environmental and social justice.
This is an exciting new competition and we cannot wait to see your entries, which we hope will inspire and foster lots of creativity within our community. Be sure to check out #LRsecondhand for competition posts to inspire your own wardrobe and don’t forget the more daily posts the better to be in for a chance to win!
