Girl gets over £1,000 worth of clothes for £15 in black friday sale

One teenager has told how she pocketed £1,130 worth of clothes from PrettyLittleThing – which arrived at her home in more than 100 bags.

But Olivia King, 18, from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, didn’t have to save too long to make these lavish purchases – she bought the staggering sum for just £15.08.

Price drops as low as 6p on fast fashion site in time Black Friday sell – leave a warning from environmental experts about throwaway culture.

Olivia, 18, was able to buy herself 110 items, including clothes, accessories and shoes, for as little as £15.08, with items ranging in price from £0.06 to £0.56.

During the last Black Friday sale, PLT sold miniskirts for just 8p but this time the fashion giant has gone further – with some items listed as ‘free’ on the website .

Olivia shared her journey on TikTok, where outraged viewers branded teenagers as ‘selfish’ after she showed off her huge collection of PrettyLittleThing bags on her floor.

But the 18-year-old said she planned to give some of the items to charity – as she did last year after the sale.

Olivia said: “PLT has given away a lot of items for free and other items are all under £1.

“The reactions I’ve encountered online have varied from supportive to jealous, and I’ve received a lot of harassment since posting videos sharing my behaviour.

“Everybody who knows me knows I’m a shopaholic and PLT is where I shop every day. The delivery driver received a gift as a thank you for delivering all of my parcels because I feel bad for having so much.”

“A lot of items I’ve kept but have also given some to family and friends.”

Olivia bought a large number of items, including dresses for £0.15 and shoes for £0.25.

The student had to check out after adding each item to her basket to make sure they didn’t sell out – resulting in a large number of bags.

PrettyLittleThing also gave away some items for free, and Olivia made sure she could buy these with unlimited next-day delivery.

She added: “This is my second year doing this and some of the items I have left over from last year have been donated to charity.

“There will be a lot more items from this year so they will also be giving away to charity.”

However, environmental charities have struggled from the PLT.

Zoe Avison, a policy analyst at environmental organization and charity Green Alliance, urges women to consider the true cost of their supposed bargains.

“Disposable clothing may look like a bargain, but it all comes with a huge environmental price tag,” she said.

“We need to get rid of this throwaway culture and focus on products that are affordable, good quality, have a long lifespan and can be easily repaired.”

Ms. Avison added that the fashion industry needs to start taking its responsibilities seriously.

A plastics campaigner at Friends of the Earth urged women who buy cheap clothes to consider the harmful microfibers used to make them.

“Too often, cheap synthetic materials are used to make new clothes, which shed tons of microfibers in washing and end up clogging our oceans,” said Camilla Zerr.

“They can even find their way into the food we eat because sea creatures tend to swallow them whole.”
