It’s that time of year; where we’re looking ahead to Spring/Summer Collections. The SS13 drops are hitting the stores and we need to make some space in the wardrobe for new purchases or the seasonal rotation of our “summer wardrobe” if you’re lucky enough to have one. So what happens to the “winter wardrobe”? Do you pack it all away for next season? Are there pieces in there that you haven’t worn for a while and no longer ache to wear?
Well now is the time to have a good clear out. This week I’ll be talking about swishing events on my BBC Radio Kent fashion slot, but it’s no longer just about charity clothing bin sessions for unwanted clothes. If you have fabulous fashion in your wardrobe that needs a new home, then BuyMyWardrobe could be the place for you; an exciting new online destination to buy and sell pre-loved designer fashion.

But now they are online and have a fabulous London abode for you to browse pre-loved fashion from. So we thought we’d let you in on this fabulous way to clear your designer pieces from your wardrobe; to make some money from it; and probably if you’re anything like us, spend said money on other peoples’ designer offerings.
