You don't have to be young to wear clothes and accessories by young designers. In fact I think we have an obligation to support those who are working hard to get their beautifully made and limited edition pieces out to a wider audience. That is why I love sites like Not Just a Label who make it their business to offer an online shop featuring designer pieces and limited edition items from more than 5000 emerging new talents worldwide.
They often invite key industrial fashion figures and celebs to 'curate' the site so the result is a collection that inspires and you know it's good. The designs are offered direct from the designer's studios and shopping is between you and the designer so the mark up is less than if bought from designer boutiques.
