Charles Anastase and Second Hand Clothes

I am so excited about London Fashion Week, apart from the fact that I have been unable to take any time out from my busy schedule as I am in the middle of lauching my new business (more on that in a minute). But in some ways, I feel more able to capture every little detail and to ponder and browse through the pictures at my own leisure here at home, I might as well look on the bright side.

Why am I so excited? Well when I look at the list of designers, I just can't wait to see their collections. So much new and exciting talent.One of the first collections to catch my eye was Charles Anastase. I am loving the second hand look. Everyone seems to be doing the second hand style thing at the moment. It is a much less polished way of dressing but much more interesting than many clothes straight from high street shops. The Charles Anastase collection just does it really well. I love the mixtures of colours and textures and eclectic style. I am not sure that I would want to pay designer prices for this look though, it would be much more fun to create something myself with second hand clothes.

This brings me neatly onto my next subject. My new website will launch at the beginning of April. It will be a place to swap, buy and sell second hand, vinatge and restyled/ recycled clothes (all free). The Posh Swaps blog is already up and running and I hope will give some ideas and inspiration for individual style using second hand clothing. All feedback is very welcome.
