This limited collection of upcycled dresses has been lovingly crafted from reclaimed waste textiles. Loosely based around the 'make do and mend' ethos of WW2 England, ethical fashion designer Charlie Chambers creates each piece herself from conception through to production.
Lovely Lucy was inspired by a visit to 'The Manor', the home of the children's author and renowned patchwork creator Lucy boston. The magic of the house is captured in Boston's depiction of 'The Green Knowe' novels, written during the cold winter months along her patchwork projects. Charlie wanted to echo this through her intricate yet playful patchwork designs whilst encompassing her strong ethical principles.
After being approached by the founders of the Red Light Campaign, Charlie produced this small capsule of dresses for retail through House of Beth.
15% of each purchase from Charlie's upcycled collection will be donated to Red Light Campaign's work to support the survivors of human trafficking.
Collection coming very soon so watch out.
Here is a brief preview of the items to come!
