Welcome to a very special edition of In HURR Wardrobe with STACEY DOOLEY. Her 2018 documentary, Stacey Dooley Investigates: Fashion’s Dirty Secrets, was a massive eye-opener for UK consumers and since then Stacey has continued to actively champion more sustainability in the fashion industry and her personal style.
We took a peek inside her home to learn more about her approach to fashion, explored pieces in her wardrobe and why she loves renting fashion with HURR. Also excitingly, she’s now lending some of her own pieces—including a pair of Gucci shoes she wore on Ru Paul’s Drag Race—on HURR too!
Meet Beth Chappell, the founder of The Pansy Garden, a vintage emporium full of prairie perfection; with pieces so unique you’ll cherish them for a lifetime. As the antithesis to fast-fashion, we spoke to Beth on all things sustainable sourcing, curated collections and why the future of fashion can be found in the legacy of wardrobes gone by.

In HURR Wardrobe is back with a very special edition starring Freya Rabet. After working as a designer for both fast and sustainable fashion brands, Freya Rabet launched her own label, Freya Simonne, of upcycled pieces last year and an environmental education project, Protect Your Mother. As extensions of her own personal style and sustainable ethos, Freya crafts her limited-edition collections from gorgeous vintage fabrics and duvets in an array of florals and pastel hues. We caught up with Freya to learn more about her work and to introduce you to her fabulous world.
Not only did we get a behind-the-scenes peek at Freya's design process and personal style ("Eclectic! Feminine! Fun!") but she is also launching an exclusive capsule rental collection of her pieces on HURR, a portion of the proceeds of which will be donated to her friend's charity, The Love Hearts Appeal. Her entire process is the embodiment of our monthly theme of loving your clothes. Welcome to In HURR Wardrobe.
The numbers are in and the facts don't lie. Stand Studio coats are officially our most popular item on HURR this month. Keep reading to see how our #HURRGirls styled them.
Bold prints are trending and we're loving it. From abstract graphics, to the cult checkerboard print, here are our favourite looks and the rented pieces to recreate them...
Big knits have been big news for as long as we can remember, with billowing sleeves, fluffy threads and a bolder-the-better colour palette defining transeasonal wardrobes everywhere. But what better sense of lockdown achievement could there be than knitting your own? I’ve rounded up our favourite do-it-yourself knit-kits to help you create a sustainable staple that’ll see you through the seasons.

She's done it again! This week, HURR girl Holly Willoughby stepped out in the Falconetti dress by The Vampire's Wife and with a 2,700 per cent increase in searches for the piece, it's fair to say that the internet immediately fell in love.
