Wearing an all thrifted outfit from the Australian Red Cross Op Shop

Alex van os

Australian Red Cross Op Shop Ambassador

From what started innocently for me as an op shop obsessed child has now grown into a passion for living a sustainable and eco-driven 'fashionable' lifestyle.

We all wear clothes, right? But so few of our wardrobe contents are ethical, sustainable or locally produced. It seems overwhelming to make the switch and to pledge an eco-minded lifestyle, but there IS a way to remain stylish and on-trend while saving the earth and helping others.... And it isn't as difficult as it sounds! 

That's where I come in!

Throughout my accomplished styling career in television and fashion, I have witnessed the copious amount of textile waste various industries and individuals go through in the name of fashion and the stigma that comes with shopping for, and wearing, pre-loved goods. My job is about changing peoples' perceptions and to help them understand that killer style doesn't have to cost the earth.

Whether you are in need of a 'Wardrobe Edit', a stylist for 'Commercial Eco Styling', or 'Eco Fashion Parades and Events', or simply want to enjoy a 'Group Op Shopping Tour' with some friends which includes all of my favourite tips, tricks and hot spots; Op Shop to Runway has you covered. 

Just by changing a few shopping habits and thinking creatively, you are making this world a more green and harmonious environment.... All while wearing a kick-ass outfit, of course!
