i the stylist Street Style – 7 July 2014

It’s that time again – we want to know what you’re wearing!  This week we hit Camden Town for some street style hunting.  As always if you fancy appearing in our Street Style section follow us on Twitter @ithestylist and we’ll let you know where we’re going to be each week. The ‘Primark SOS’ story was all over the news so our question was, Do you ever feel guilty buying cut price clothing knowing that manufacturers may not be working under inadequate conditions?
