In The Know: Clothesagency.com

 

 

We're on countdown to Christmas now - the season of goodwill, presents and a fair bit of excess, which is why it's useful to know about the Clothesagency.com. Set up by Isla D'Aubigny with the aim to increase the recycling of quality clothing as well as valuable donations to charity, Clothesagency.com works like eBay but with the addition of the profit going to charity instead of the said seller's pocket.

 

There's a one-off payment to register with the site and then you can get going - or "fripping" as D'Aubigny  is calling it, fundraising made hip.

 

"Fashion lovers now have an easy way to regularly recycle and turn their much-loved items into specific charity donations," she explains.

 

Among the site's fans is actress Gillian Anderson, who has made over £10,000 already for charity.

 

"I've been trying to figure out for years how to make the most out of my old designer clothes. Until now it was either donating to a charity shop, which might raise £20 for a Ralph Lauren gown, or leaving in the hands of a consignment shop, which can't sell at proportionate prices and then takes 40 per cent off the top," explains Anderson. "So the Clothesagency.com has been such a wonderful discovery. The perfect platform for exactly this situation. Everyone wins."
