Reduce, Reuse and Upcycle

Bristols upcycling queen Helen Brown from Kecks Clothing has collaborated with  Emmaus Bristol with an aim to bring reuse to the forefront of the charity sector, preventing landfilll waste, saving money and helping you revamp your stuff and your wardrobe! On Friday 15th July ( as part of a Bristol fashion doublewhammy alongside the That Thing Festival Showcase launch to follow this post shortly) No Debutante attended the launch party for the 'Upcycling Lounge' at Emmaus Bristol to find out more about the collaboration with Kecks Clothing.


Helen from Kecks Clothing, is one of Bristols top reuse specialists whom regularly holds workshops and talks inspiring and promoting upcycling and reuse, working closely with local charities and Bristol Textiles Recyclers to help promote  the benefits of reuse and to show you what you can do to help and get upcycling yourself! Kecks Clothing itself is a fashion and textiles brand upcycling preloved clothing with hand drawn designs and stencil prints. Kecks Clothing is available to buy at the Upcycling Lounge, Emmaus, Bristol. 



 I have fond memories of upcycling, stencil printing and customising preloved clothing as over ten years ago I had my own fashion and upcycling brand named Phlem ( I agree the name isn't great but it certainly got attention!) which sadly had to come to an end due to a lack of childcare & finances for the two beautiful children I had brought into the world with my business partner (and husband) Phil! It was a different time then and collab spaces were a very new thing that didn't yet exist in Bristol, I think as a small business we would have benefited from this greatly! I am very proud of Phlem and what we achieved.

Emmaus itself is a homelessness charity with a difference, not only raising money and awareness for the charity but also finding homes, jobs and support for many homeless people. Helping them get their lives back on track.









Check out the Upcycling Lounge at Emmaus Bristol on Upper York street, Stokes Croft, Bristol for clothing, workshops and Furniture in a relaxed and modern vintage atmosphere and find yourself a bargain. Find your local Emmaus store here and get involved!



If you are having a fashion event or a have a new collection you would like No Debutante to promote please get in touch! You do not have to be from Bristol or even the UK. Fashion newbies are very welcome!

Culottes, Shorts and Batty Girls

No Debutante loves Culottes, this is clear. I have written several blog posts on my love for culottes and wide leg trousers over the past year or so, the last being in May this year where I obsessed over the latest cuts and styles of wide legged trousers and shorts in my Baggy Trousers post. I have clearly been influenced by this post as there has definitely been a rise in the amount of times I'm wearing these wide legged beauties and appear to have found many more images to collect on Pinterest too...I tell you I'm obsessed! 

Check out the latest looks in culottes, crop flares and wide legged shorts and get inspired for summer! I am loving everything that Batty Garage by Aymmy does especially their take on wide legged shorts and trousers in cool prints and plains and the whole fash clash mash up collection for Mui Miu Resort 2017, expect blog posts on both of these inspirational designers very soon on the No Debutante blog.

Culottes and wide leg cuts are gonna be real big for the next year too so a great investment to get your hands on! BTW wide leg cuts aren't just for the girls, check out the latest menswear styles from Ader and Alexander McQueen 2017 for inspo for the boys!
