This is Kate Orr wearing the grey dress, or as she calls it “the brown dress”.

My lovely spotty brown dress caught my eye in Primark and became a staple item for castings back in the day. I seem to remember a few of us (models) had that dress at castings. Nobody minded, we all wore it differently. I kept my dress for about 10 years and wore it a lot. It was still good to go when I sent it to the charity shop. I have a few key items in my wardrobe that I have had for over 10 years, and I still wear today.”

Many thanks to supermodel Kate Orr. Hair & makeup by Dina at Frank Agency. Styling by Kate Orr and Sophie Kenningham at Frank Agency. Photo Assisting by Julie Stewart. Extra special thanks to Art Director Jo Bell. Photography by me Wendy Carrig at A&R Creative agency.

This grey dress was bought from a charity shop and shows a ‘made in Spain’ Primark label. But #whereismyfabricfrom and #whomademyclothes? Any clues?

No new clothes were purchased in the production of this photoshoot.

The continuing story of the grey dress. The same dress, a charity shop purchase, worn again, and again. I have been photographing this dress for ten years and I want to know more about it’s origin. I want to know #whomademyfabric and #whomademyclothes? If you have any advice on how I can achieve this, please message me. I would love to hear from you.

The continuing story of the grey dress. The same dress, a charity shop purchase, worn again and again. Refashioned by each of it’s different wearers. 100% cotton, but where was the cotton grown? How was it harvested? #Traceability I have been photographing the Grey Dress for ten years and now I want to know more about it’s origin. I am going to become detective and see how far back along the chain I can go in finding out #whomademyclothes?
