“The Future of Fashion”
ITV This Morning, on Bandi App
Here’s the lowdown
As most of you have probably heard, Love Island has announced that they will be partnering with eBay this year.
Why is this a big deal?
Love Island, a show watched by millions all over the UK, is well known for Islanders changing their outfits every night, all funded by fast-fashion brands. They then usually go on to partner with fast fashion brands once they have left the villa, promoting fast fashion to a huge audience. Which, in case you hadn’t guessed, is not good for the planet.
That’s why this partnership with eBay is HUGE. This year, they’ve chosen eBay as their fashion partner to dress the islanders in secondhand and preloved clothing! Love Island is a hotspot for fashion trends, with searches for items like “marble dress” skyrocketing up to 127% after last year’s winner, Millie Court, wore one. By choosing to dress the islanders in preloved clothes, it represents a huge shift, bringing slow fashion to the mainstream and proving that it’s fashionable.
What’s it got to do with Bandi?
This has to be up there when it comes to exciting things happening. Thanks to Love Islands’ new partnership, This Morning showed off amazing secondhand outfits found on eBay, Depop, Vinted, Thrift+ and Bandi!! The model showed off the cutest heels and handbag; both swapped on Bandi! We’re so honoured and proud to be shown alongside these amazing secondhand platforms, and we can’t wait to see where we grow from here!
