As of yesterday, H&M have launched the first nationwide Fashion Recycling Week from August 31st – September 6th.
To celebrate, H&M and London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF) have challenged students to create window installations using clothes donated through H&M’s garment collecting initiative. The installations will be displayed in H&M windows in eight key cities across UK and Ireland, including the H&M South King Street store here in Dublin (below).

Over the next week, customers will have the chance of winning a €250 voucher to spend in stores by instagramming their guess of the number of garments used in each installation in the South King Street window display and posting a picture of the window tagging @hm and the hashtag #CloseTheLoop.
H&M will also be introducing their new denim styles made of recycled cotton from textiles collected in the Garment Collecting initiative in H&M stores.
The capsule collections for ladies, men and children are the latest steps towards H&M’s goal of creating a sustainable closed loop for fashion. The collections will be available in all stores worldwide from 7th September 2015.
