Second-hand style on show


Ten Nelson models took part in the Styled By fashion show at the Boathouse on Saturday, raising money for local charities.

Organiser Sinead Ogilvie, of Socially, says the event was entirely curated from second-hand clothes sourced from local op-shops.

“We wanted to showcase that money can’t buy style and that you don’t have to be rich to dress well. We want to encourage our community to spend less and be more sustainable and less wasteful.”

She says that the event raised close to $5000 with the final tally still to come.

All clothing was second-hand and styled by Sonya Leusink-Sladen.
