Mary Portas - Queen of Charity Shops!

A little while ago the good old Mary Portas came to Ravensbourne to speak to some of us fashion students to see if we could help her assisting with a re-vamp of a charity shop in Orpington.

I found this delightful screenshot of Mary stood next to a Hannah Taylor and a Hannah Buswell 'pre-collection original' in the studio..!

The idea was to get local people involved in not only donating goods but to offer services to widen the shops appeal. I offered to hold knitting groups and my friend Calum Harvey volunteered to sell his 'Long Life' clothing range, where goods are made from recycled materials.

I'm not too sure what footage they've chosen to use, but you can catch it tonight on BBC 2 at 9pm!
