Sustainable Outfit Ideas for Fashion Week Season

Fashion month is in full swing and while the concept of fashion weeks can sometimes result in increased consumption, there are plenty of emerging designers doing things differently and working to promote a more circular and sustainable world. As a result, those of us who attend fashion week have the opportunity to do the same thing and it turns out, it’s easier than you might think.

This season, we challenged ourselves to opt for pre-loved fits over popular trends and styled a number of sustainable looks through renting, borrowing and shopping secondhand with Depop. Increasingly, the pre-loved platform is finding itself at the center of fashion week, with emerging creatives and sellers like johnsvintagefazedbyfinn and breadandbuttercollection curating vintage fashion and streetwear selections purely for the purpose of fashion week dressing.

As a result, we took to the platform to source vintage and secondhand pieces from some of our favorite brands and designers, including those showcasing at LFW for Fall/Winter 2023.

Take a look at our rundown of London Fashion Week looks below.

While you’re here, check out our roundup of the biggest trends from this LFW season.
