I broke up with fast fashion because I had lost my own sense of style, by looking like everyone else.
Vanessa shares, "My journey away from fast fashion was initially less about sustainability, more about myself. But it’s taken me on a journey which has taught me so much, and changed the way I look not only at fashion but all aspect of my life.
"For me clothes are an expression of individuality. I had forgotten the joy I had as a teenager rummaging through jumble sales and charity shops. I have rediscovered that joy. "
Vanessa Johnson delights in her second hand discoveries.
