2009 oxfam fashion challenge Jones and Oxfam invite you to turn designer

HAVING already lent her fashion wisdom to the re-launch of Oxfam's Camden store, salvage stylist Mrs Jones is back on the sartorial campaign trail, this time inviting you to get creative and customise a garment from old clothing or recycled materials.
To be judged by Mrs Jones herself - who has styled acts including The Killers, Kylie Minogue, Scissor Sisters and Goldfrapp - the winning designer will go on to have a one-of-a-kind item created for them especially by Mrs Jones. Meanwhile, the top five shortlisted designs will be featured on the Oxfam DIY website.
"Seeing as I've always shopped in Oxfam, creating Oxfam DIY was the perfect opportunity to give something back. It's a rare feeling in fashion to be doing something ethical, sustainable and worthwhile," explains Mrs Jones, otherwise known as Fee Doran. "We've taken a look at people's attitudes to fashion and consumption and are giving them the materials, ideas and confidence to create their own looks via Oxfam DIY."
Oxfam's head of retail, Sarah Farquhar adds: "Our range of second-hand clothing offers a wealth of possibilities for creative minds, and this competition will give aspiring designers the chance to have their work seen by one of the best stylists working today."
