Love Island stylist curates second-hand wardrobe for show

ITV’s Love Island returns for a new series on Monday.

The show had attracted criticism from sustainability advocates in the past for promoting fast fashion with previous sponsors like Missguided and I Saw It First.

This year they’ve partnered with eBay and contestants will be dressed in pre-owned items. Amy Bannerman has styled the likes of Dua Lipa and was selected to curate the outfits.

She showed the BBC inside her studio.
