Tim Walker, famous for his iconic fashion shoots, has brought his genius for fantasy to a special shoot for Oxfam partywear featuring Roger Hargreaves’ Mr Men characters.
‘It was an idea that came to me because I grew up with them – Mr Men and Little Miss.
‘They illustrated to me, at a young age, the variety of human behaviours and characters in a vivid way – there are all kinds of colours and characters of Mr Men and Little Miss and there’s all kinds of clothes for all sorts of people that you can buy in an Oxfam shop. And they make people smile; the cause may be serious but you can still smile.’
Included in the models Tim chose for the shoot are Vogue covergirl Adwoa Aboah, new fashion favourite Jean Campbell and Australian-born Lily Nova who walked for Gucci this season.
500 of Oxfam’s high street shops are stocked with unique, stylish and affordable clothes to kick off the Christmas party season.
‘Buying party clothes from Oxfam is a great way to help fight poverty around the world. There’s something for everyone. Enjoy buying something unique and affordable, wear it this party season, and if you don’t want to wear it again, just donate it back.’
Oxfam’s head of retail marketing
If you can’t find your individual party-look in your local store, the Oxfam Online Shop is a treasure trove of over 45,000 items of clothing and accessories, with new pieces added every day.
‘I wanted to do something to help promote Oxfam – and Roger Hargreaves’s humorous and entertaining children’s illustrations are a powerful means of spotlighting what can be great about Oxfam shops. I hope that this inspires some great looks to be found at Oxfam for the end of year partying and holiday.’
Oxfam is currently raising money for victims of humanitarian crises in Yemen, West Africa and Syria, and those affected by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti. Last financial year, Oxfam’s shops contributed over £20 million to Oxfam’s work to end poverty.
