Cadogan, NSPCC & Harrods: Fashion Re-Told

Harrods, Cadogan and the NSPCC collaborated to create the world’s ‘most glamorous charity shop’ on chic Sloane Street –a millennial-pink pop-up that opened for just one month in April 2018, selling pre-loved designer pieces. All proceeds went directly to the NSPCC’s vital work –raising over £110,000 and driving awareness through major impact on both social and traditional media channels.

As one of the oldest known materials, paper continues to be a symbol of innovation and technological progression — a medium that goes far beyond just being a carrier of ideas and knowledge, a profoundly important and valuable material.

PORTER x Parley for the Oceans

For its Summer Escape issue, PORTER was proud to partner with Parley for the Oceans – as well as acclaimed photographer Mario Sorrenti and cover star Anja Rubik to highlight the plastic crisis facing our blue planet.

Fashioned from Nature highlights fashion’s dependence on the riches of nature for inspiration, energy and raw materials.
