“Thanks to the generosity of donors we have created our very own little Fashion Relief circular economy – as long as people continue to donate fabulous items, we will continue to have fabulous bargains up for grabs,” said Lorraine.

When Covid hit, Fashion Relief pivoted to an always-on online platform with the tech knowhow of our incredible partners, Axonista, so we could continue to offer our supporters amazing bargains with the added bonus of shopping more sustainably while also supporting Oxfam’s global work to beat poverty.

Fashion Relief is part of Oxfam’s solution to ‘throwaway fashion’, encouraging people to donate pre-loved items and reduce the amount of clothes that end up in landfill as well as shopping second-hand to give pre-loved clothes a longer life. So, by bagging a bargain from Fashion Relief you’ll be shopping more sustainably and doing your bit for people and planet.

“I’ve seen Oxfam’s incredible work with women, providing them with training so they can start – or grow – their own businesses,” added Lorraine. “When people shop with Fashion Relief TV, they’re not only bagging yourself a bargain, they’re supporting women to have the same opportunities to work and fair pay as men, and the same chance to lift themselves out of poverty."

If you have any designer and high-quality clothes or bags that you’d like to donate to Fashion Relief, email Aisling at aisling.wallace@oxfam.org to order a pre-paid, pre-addressed Fashion Relief donation bag. Simply pack the items in your donation bag and bring them to your local post office. You can donate up to 12 items at a time.
