Miss England’s Top 10 ‘Lockdown Ladies’ #WearItGreen to save our planet!
On the Livestream , you can watch the making and modelling of their outfits designed entirely by reusing rubbish to reduce environmental impacts during lockdown.
The ‘lockdown ladies’ have made thrifty fashion videos to encourage tree planting pledges for We Do Ethical, who aim to help make the UK carbon neutral before 2050; in a bid to save our planet, as global temperatures continue to rise alongside carbon emissions at an alarming rate.
Each eco outfit has been selected for resourcefulness and style within the Wear It Green theme by one of the fashion industry’s pioneers in regards to tackling both fast fashion and other key sustainability issues. Kelly Levell (BA Hons) has proudly judged Miss England’s Eco Award since discovering her very first Miss Eco ambassador, Carina Tyrell, back in 2014.
Tune in to learn how Lizzy Willis upcycled her NHS scrubs into a reversible two-piece, using trousers she wore working on an IC unit during the COVID-19 pandemic. See Cherrelle Ford’s beautiful layered dress, making good use of packaging waste from our increased delivery rates during lockdown. Danielle Farness decided to make an eco dress using Walkers crisps packets, admitting that: “ …The green salt and vinegar packets are my favourite flavour!”
Deyonne Best, who won the National Miss Eco title back in 2018 and has learned a new knitting skill and shared it by showing us all how to produce a really wearable dress from a few balls of wool. Taylor-Lousie Thomas went for an ‘Eco Soldier’’ look, modelling a funky playsuit and cuffed boots she constructed out of her dad’s old military wear. She even reused the cut-off ‘scraps’ to accessorise items and complete her look.
“The Wear It Green theme has produced so many fantastic entries from Miss England’s changemaking ladies year on year. It’s very difficult to choose the overall winner based on the outfits alone! This year I’m very grateful to every single person who has pledged to plant trees through our campaign, helping us to award the next Miss Eco and save our planet from CO2 together.” – Kelly Levell, Miss England Eco Judge.
