It’s time to talk about the elephant in the room: fast fashion. Each season we look at fashion weeks across the world to see the latest trends, with the expiry date on clothing becoming shorter each time. This issue of Otwo we’re putting the pause button on fast fashion, showing how to work with simple pieces in your wardrobe. This photoshoot was made possible with a helping hand from Dublin’s Siopaella, where founder and CEO Ella de Guzman is a big advocate of sustainable fashion. With three stores across Dublin and a website, there’s plenty of opportunities to grab a pre-loved bargain. – Shane Cullen, Fashion Editor
