Clothes are one of the most important things in life. Not only do you have to feel comfortable, feel your best, and look your best, but others perceive you by how you present yourself to the public.  ITV is presenting the Wardrobe Angel in a show called Throwaway Britain on Thursday 1st August at 9pm. You’ll learn how to increase the longevity of your clothes in this edition.

Throwaway Britain

In January I gave a talk at Manchester WI (click here for more info) about the importance of re-styling and re-imagining clothes to keep them out of landfill:approx 10,000 garments get thrown away every 5 minutes in the UK. 6 months later I had a phone call from ITV asking me to come in for a meeting about the same topic. An ITV researcher had been sitting in the audience at my WI talk and had recommended me. With the help of my trusty and talented seamstress, Laura from Just Sew Perfect (click here for her website), we had a day filming at the awesome Photolink studio (for more info click here) in Manchester with 8 women who wanted to get more wear out of their clothes.
