Andreea, 20, Cardiff

My fashion icon is Karl Lagerfeld and when it comes to inspiration it’s really just movies, Instagram or actual people on the street

A combination of both!

My coat and trousers are from Bershka, turtleneck is Primark and my chain is from a car boot sale in Swansea!

A combination of all 3, affordable price for overall good quality and it has to be in my aesthetic!

I firstly ask friends and family if they want anything and after that I donate them. If something is a bit more expensive I might sell it. And why, because we should always recycle/upcycle clothes!

Do you consider yourself a contributor to fast fashion? If so why?

Yes, because I still buy from brands like Primark, Bershka etc due to the fact that their prices are incredibly affordable and sustainable fashion is not quite that accessible yet to the average customer.
