Topshop has made its biggest fashion statement yet, as the highstreet retailer announced that it will be promoting enviromentally-friendly fashion in a permanent ‘Reclaim’ collection, made from recycled garments.
Trish Clarke, head of technical services at Topshop stated;
It will certainly give ethical clothing the platform it needs – a step in the right direction, to counteract fast fashion and over consumerism that Topshop is so responsible for. In the past, Topshop’s design team has worked with Orsela De Castro, a leader in reclaimed textiles. The partnership introduced Topshop’s first sustainable clothing collection ‘Reclaim to Wear‘, which was produced from leftover fabrics from previous collections.
Now Topshop is giving sustainable style a permanent place within its stores, complete with affordable designs ranging from £16-65. The collection includes 70’s style button down dresses, structured sheer panel shirts and casual dark wash denim looks.
Topshop Reclaim will be available in stores and online from 16th July
