The Wardrobe Architect 2015 Challenge


This year fast-fashion is OUT and capsule wardrobes are IN as many bloggers have decided to swear off shopping and make due with a smaller wardrobe. 

As you'll recall, last year I participated in Coletterie's Wardrobe Architect Challenge which helped motivate me to pair down my wardrobe and analyse my style so that I could create a better and more authentic wardrobe. And I'm pleased to announce that the Wardrobe Architect series has returned in 2015. While participants are encouraged to avoid fast fashion and to sew new clothing items, it's not mandatory to participate and you can adapt the guidelines to fit your needs. Below is a list of what the Wardrobe Architect will be covering each month:


  • January – Find your core style and explore shapes
  • February – Clean out your closet and take inventory
  • March – Review and finalize your spring/summer sewing projects
  • April – Plan colors and shop for spring fabric
  • May & June – Sew for your spring/summer capsule wardrobe
  • July – Review and finalize your autumn/winter sewing projects
  • August – Plan colors and shop for autumn fabric
  • September & October – Sewing for your autumn/winter capsule wardrobe
  • November – Review and refine
  • December – Show off your wardrobe!
  • I'll admit that committing to avoid fast fashion sounds a bit daunting and I'm not sure if I have the time and/or the confidence in my ability to make EVERY new clothing item, but I do want to invest in quality items over quantity, I want a more manageable and authentic wardrobe, and I have been favoring more mid-range stores and vintage shops lately. So I'm going to do my best to follow the Wardrobe Architect 2015 Challenge, avoid fast fashion as much as possible, and complete the Wardrobe Architect exercises from month to month.

    Are you doing a capsule wardrobe in 2015? Will you be participating in the Wardrobe Architect 2015 Challenge? I'd love to hear from you!
