Oxfam Boutique, Westbourne Grove, London

We’ve all noticed Oxfam getting more and more upmarket over the past 10 years, gone are the days when you could get a genuine bargain in there, but take another look because the high street charity chain is branching into the unknown with their first “boutique”.

To celebrate the launch, seven British designers have made one-off pieces using clothing from the charity shop which will be auctioned on eBay. If this boutique is a success then two more will follow in the summer.

As well as preloved fashion there will also be fashion and accessories from the likes of People Tree and Wright & Teague, as well as this some of the donated clothes will be getting worked on by young designers from the London College of Fashion.

"Oxfam has always been a place where stylish people hunt for interesting items to create their look. The boutiques are set to make that even easier."
Jane Sheperdson, CEO, Whistles & Oxfam Volunteer
