I went to Off the Scale Clothing's opening party on Friday 9th October, modelling clothes and doing live social media as well. Off the Scale Clothing is a non-profit enterprise in Kings Heath, it aims to help to raise awareness for people with depression particularly amongst the young who have not been diagnosed. The shop supports and hires these people, in order to help them to get back into the community. It is a great concept to combine social benefits and enterprise into one place, sustainable fashion is a big trend which can keep the shop running.
9/10 星期五我去左Off the Scale Clothing 開幕，咁我就去幫手做下model，搜集資料做social media。佢係一間慈善機構幫助d 有抑鬱症既人，幫助有需要既人重新投入社會。間鋪係Kings Heath，離Birmingham市中心大約20分鐘巴士，呢一區隔離幾分鐘Moseley 係被列為英國最好住既地方，因為係完善既小社區，大家人際關係都好好。
The shop has a nice range of recycled and upcycled clothes. Recycled clothes are 'buy the weight', which means however cool the top is, you just pay by the weight. For example, at £18 /kilo - here is a very nice silky Emporio Armani dress just £4 because of the light weight!! Another collection is up-cycled fashion, it make use of existing clothing to redesign as fashion items. Every up-cycled item of clothing is handmade by people who have had depression, which makes the pieces more unique and meaningful. Also, Craig Charles, supporter of the concept, attended the party, he has been interviewed by Mazzy Snape and http://dontfretmedia.co.uk , shown below. The party went very well, more fun elements brought to the community, it was a great start for Off the Scale! Congratulation!
大部分既衫都係計重量，無論件衫咩質地咩牌子都係 £18/ kilo，仲有另一系列係循環再造，係由抑鬱症康復人士整，買靚衫之餘又做善事一舉兩得。工作同時我都不忘尋寶，我就汁到筍野，呢條Emporio Armani連身裙 £4咋！ 抵到爛，簡直平靚正！英國著名藝人Craig Charles都有黎，下面個訪問係由 Mazzy Snape 同http://dontfretmedia.co.uk 做既。Kings Heath而家愈黎愈多元素一定會更加好。新鋪開張大吉！
