    12 Steps to Fashion Citizenship

    by Melanie Rickey

    Make today the first day of the rest of your sustainable life.


    • STEP 1 & 2

      Be a citizen, not a consumer. Change your shopping habits and save the world

      Leave the madness of the wasteful fashion system behind. Free yourself from being the consumer at the end of the fashion chain and become a participant in the new fashion system using Save Your Wardrobe. Stop those impulse buys, make only thoughtful purchases.


    • STEP 3&4

      Make a fearless inventory

      KEEP: things you love and wear all the time. Make the most of them, wear them regularly. Care for them as if they were your friends. REPAIR: Things you stopped wearing and can learn to love again. Don't be lazy, it's worth it! Nine extra months of active wear help reduce environmental impact of your clothes by 20 to 30% SELL Items that have value and that can be worn by someone else. It's hard to detach yourself but you won't regret it! DONATE Items that can be useful to other people. Also good to support your community!


    • STEP 5&6

      Acknowledge where you have been going wrong with wardrobe and laundering choices. Make a promise to change forever.

      Connect with our community and share where you have been going wrong. We can help. Pledge to keep your clothes in use as long as possible.


    • STEP 7

      Digitise your wardrobe

      "If you have the time to find the right size and fit for your body, you also have the time to choose clothes that fit your values and beliefs. If you search on the latter criteria, you’ll find very different things. If you find anything at all! You might find you already have what you seek. And that is where the Save Your Wardrobe is brilliant because you can see what you own quickly using the app, and keep it in use." Orsola De Castro - SYW Session 1


    • STEP 8

      Ditch your fashion habit by learning new skills.

      Learn to sew! Seek out shoe and repairs companies! Resale. Now you have proudly become a Fashion Citizen! You have so many new, exciting and creative ways to enjoy fashion with more coming online all the time.


    • STEP 9

      Continue to inventory your wardrobe, and when wrong, fess up.

      "Gamifying the idea of getting the most of your wardrobe. I feel guilty if I don’t show my clothes love. I think of them as having little souls. The best way we can honour the garment workers is wearing as much as we can.” Lauren Bravo


    • STEP 10

      Make sure your personal values align to the fashion brands, retailers and designers you support.

      “A sense of noticing, valuing, recognising and appreciating our belongings feels increasingly important. It’s about using an app like Save Your Wardrobe as a tool to knowing what you have, recognising its value, and appreciating it and using it more.” Dr Kate Fletcher


    • STEP 11&12

      Love Your Clothes : Cherish them, share them. Look after them. Wear them. Repair them. Carry this message of Fashion Citizenship to consumers and join our tribe!

      Just by caring for your clothes differently, you can make a huge positive impact to the environment. Through digitalising wardrobes, reconnecting users with their garments and encouraging them to use the ecosystem of services including eco cleaning, alterations and repairs and donations to extend the life of their garments, we have quantified the impact of our community since launch. Join our community as together we make more mindful choices and exponentially grow this impact in 2021!

    Tips From our partners

    Upskill Yourself

    Play with your clothes and give them a second life.
    Discover a full series of tutorials to easily repair your wardrobe at home.

    • Rebirth is a vintage clothing line that was created with the objective of giving a second life to abandoned pieces of clothing through up-cycling and customization. Rebirth aims to convey to everyday consumers that sustainable fashion is more simple than commonly thought, does not require new purchases, but can be done through relooking what is already in your wardrobe.
    • Repair What You Wear is a response to austerity and climate change, a recognition of the need that small things will make a difference to individuals and society. Clothes mending can save money and reduce landfill at a time that both are essential but when mending skills have all but disappeared. Set up and funded by a former retail buyer and a graphic designer, the teaching is clear and accessible, designed to empower when we can all feel helpless in the face of change.
    • Clothes Doctor is a platform to help people extend the life of their clothes by repairing, altering, restoring and caring for their wardrobe, the way our parents and grandparents did.
