Make Do and Mend is saaf London’s go-to for sustainable and affordable clothing. Instead of throwing away your favourite clothes; you can get them repaired in this Brixton store and carry on wearing them to your heart’s content. Or if you’re looking at your wardrobe and thinking “I literally have nothing to wear!” (you literally do, but we won’t tell), then MDAM (not to be confused with the street drug) doubles as a straightforward vintage clothes shop. With big prints but a dainty price-tag, Make Do and Mend is a fun way to shop guilt free.
We spoke to owner, Sarah about how important it is for her to be able to sell affordable clothes that recycle timeless styles rather than simply disposing of the “old”. Take a look at our video and head on down to Brixton to get your vintage fill.
