Do contestants get clothes to wear?
We all know that fashion is key on Love Island, the participants usually dress up both day and night to impress their fellow peers along with the masses of viewers watching onscreen and online.
Reportedly, Islanders take their own luggage to the villa. However, the contestants are limited to their fashion choices…
The stars are not allowed to wear branded clothing, this is to prevent legal issues.
A trademark owner may demand a licensing fee to display their logo, therefore one can’t simply use an existing brand’s logo without first obtaining a license to do so.
Candidates are also given an allowance before entering the villa, usually provided by sponsored brands.
In past seasons, Islanders have rocked various fashion brands but series seven is associated with particular Official Fashion and Activewear Partners.
This means that contestants will in fact be given clothing from brands I Saw It First as well as JD Sports to wear during the show.
