The Buymywardrobe.com team: Kal Di Paola, Mimma Viglezio and Camilla Morton
FashionBite was thrilled to receive an exclusive invitation to the BuyMyWardrobe.com launch party this week, where we scoffed canapes and chatted to some of the biggest names in the fashion blogosphere. The lovely ladies over at BuyMyWardrobe have been making their mark in the world of designer fashion recycling since 2008, but this week their luxe-recycling revolution launched online. FashionBite caught up with the team at their champagne-fuelled party at Vanilla London, Great Titchfield Street…
Fronted by former fashion designer Kal Di Paola and with former Gucci Group Executive Mimma Viglezio on the board of directors, BuyMyWardrobe has established itself as a one stop shop for pre-loved designer fashion. The company’s fashion recycling events see groups of carefully selected fashionistas gathering to sell the unwanted contents of their designer wardrobes to members of the public. What a great idea!

Some of the UK’s most stylish women, including Marketing Manager at Stella McCartney Akiko Takashima, What Not to Wear stylist Zoe Lem and even Kiss FM DJ Neev Ranu have been getting thrifty and the online sellers are just as cool. Rubbing shoulders with bloggers Prince Cassius and Stella Katterman, FashionBite also met some of Buymywardrobe.com’s ‘Founding Fifty’ – ﬁfty women hand-selected for their unique personal style, a mix of previous popular sellers and newfound style icons.
So how can you get involved? Seller memberships will be highly sought after, but cash strapped fashion lovers can take advantage of barely worn and expertly sourced designer clothing at a fraction of the retail price. Expect to ﬁnd barely worn Louboutins, classic Chanel and that Mulberry you’ve had your eye on, all available from a trustworthy source.
After a few glasses of champagne and a couple of cheeky shots, we headed over to Whiskey Mist for an amazing after party, headed up by the infamous Jodie Harsh. Now we’ve nursed our sore heads, we can’t wait to seek out some gorgeous vintage goods. Credit cards at the ready, girls!
