The Love Islanders Partied In Pre-Loved eBay Last Night – Here's How To Shop Their Looks - Grazia

Summary

When Love Island first started making its way back onto our social media feeds for the new eighth season, the first thing we heard was that eBay had snapped up a huge partnership with the dating show. Eight episodes in, we got a first look into that sustainable shopping, with eBay holding a 'Shimmer and Shine' party.

Including glittery dresses, sequined jackets and shimmering skirts, at first glance, you may have thought that the party was filled with fast fashion but in fact, all of the outfits were already sourced from other buyers and listings on eBay. That's right, even Tasha's jaw-dropping lace-up green dress was a second-hand buy from an eBay seller.

On a mission to change the way that the nation thinks about its shopping habits, the party did actually have an impact, with the search for 'sequin dresses' on eBay soaring to 117% last night. It was certainly a party to remember and to get our own sparkle on, we have hunted down all of the Islanders' looks.

Styling Sequins On The Love Islanders

Amy Bannerman, eBay UK’s Love Island stylist and second-hand enthusiast said: 'It’s so exciting to see the Islanders glammed up in pre-loved for the 'Shimmer and Shine' party. It’s well known in the fashion industry that sequins are one of the biggest culprits of landfills and so bad for the environment. I really wanted to show how sequins don’t just have the wow factor one time round, to encourage the nation to think pre-loved first for their next party dress and extend its life cycle.'

'And don’t they look incredible! I handpicked brands including Isabel Marant and Nadine Merabi for this event, mixing short sequin minis with little chain tops for the girls, and glitter jackets with metallic shirts for the guys. I looked to the runway for inspiration from Tom Ford, Versace and Loewe.'

SHOP: The Love Islanders' Looks From The eBay 'Shimmer and Sparkle' Party

From vintage New Look to House of CB, all the Love Islanders were dressed in a range of brands that were snapped straight off of listings from the website. Some listings were as low as £7 whereas Luca's Palm Angels bomber was sold for £180. You can find out all the details below.

Ebay has its own hub for Love Island looks so that you can grab your own style too, visit the Official Love Island eBay page to see what's out there.

We've been let in on a sneaky secret too: you can get 15% off all pre-loved on eBay with the code PAY15LESS until tomorrow (16th June) at midnight.
