Our first ever February eco-fashion challenge has now ended and we’d like to thank everyone who took part. Showcasing charity shop finds, vintage pieces, hand made and recycled frockery, it was such fun that we we’ll definitely be repeating it next year.
So who won? Over to our independent judge Amber, who has now completed her deliberations:
First of all, can I just say that judging this was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, because I really wanted to award the prize to everyone. (Looking at the photos has also made me determined to hit up my local charity shops at the first possible opportunity – so many great outfits!)
Anyway, after a lot of thought, I’ve finally come to a decision and the winner is (drumroll)...
I chose Mary, not just because of her flair for fashion (I absolutely loved all of the bright colours and patterns in Mary’s outfits), but also because I was really impressed with her knack of being able to alter items, either by dyeing them, or by taking them apart and turning them into something else. That takes a good eye and a lot of skill, so kudos to Mary!
In the runner’s up position, I’ve chosen Annick Breugelmans. The main thing I noticed about Annick’s photos was her ability to create lots of very different looks, proving how versatile eco fashion can be (and also that Annick can wear just about anything!).
Well done to everyone who took part and thanks, Alison, for running the challenge and allowing me to be part of it!
So congratulations to Mary and Annick! Your prizes will be winging their way to you very soon.
And since this is our first ever challenge, we have decided that everyone deserves to be a winner this year, so we’ll be sending some thank you vouchers to all the other great participants.
See you all next year, if not before!
