Behind the seams

16 July 2019, Action for Change

Eco-stylist Natalie Shehata is addressing the need for a more sustainable future of fashion

Natalie is on a mission to change the way we consume and interpret fashion. Her hugely successful website is helping bring an awareness to how our clothes are made and what actually happens ‘behind the seams’ – both in the manufacturing of our clothing and the advertising of them. 

She also wants to change the stigma attached to preloved and second-hand clothing. 

A snapshot of style 

In the gallery below, Natalie reveals the treasures that can be uncovered from a quick rummage through one of Save the Children’s op shops and shares her tips and tricks on how – with a bit of fashionista nous and a fist-full of spare change – you can become a fully-fledged op-shopping style master.  All while simultaneously sustainably shopping AND contributing to a brighter future for vulnerable children!
