We know about plastic bags. We know about straws. And we can’t even bring ourselves to face the shame of asking for coffee without a KeepCup. But for all the good that does, many of us are still finding it difficult to break free of bad fashion habits – those bulk-buying bargain basics with a click of a mouse – delivered in swathes of plastic.

Fashion is the third largest polluter of our planet after oil and gas, and our fondness for fast retail does nothing to help this. Every year, 300,000 tons of clothing ends up in landfill, not to mention the damage done to the environment in creating the materials in the first place. It’s frightening to think what we’re contributing to the problem. But there are easy fixes, such as shopping sustainably.

In fact, the coolest way to update your wardrobe with Insta-worthy style this season is as budget friendly as it is green. Enter… the dress agency.

Impeccable, luxurious and pre-loved are just some of the hallmarks of Christine Colbert’s Prestbury boutique, Dress Cheshire. The décor is gorgeous, with statement walls, velvet-covered chaise lounges and rails filled with everything from Chanel jackets to DVF dresses. This is boutique buying with the added benefits of saving both money and the planet, as well as giving to local charity.

Christine is the perfect advocate for sustainable shopping. Impeccably dressed in a designer blazer under rows of Coco pearls, the award-winning marketeer has long been ahead of the eco-shopping curve. Luxury and longevity are at the heart of her fashion ethos.
