Advocating Pre-Loved Fashion Together With Bukowskis
Bukowskis – one of our favorite auction sites – asked us to give our view on the power of pre-owned fashion, as we believe this to be a game changer when it comes to achieving a sustainable fashion future. We've also picked out 12 great pieces from their Vintage & Fashion auction. Place your bids!
“The importance and power of pre-owned fashion is undeniable if we’re going to make a change for a sustainable fashion future. The truth is: we’re never going to get there without it. Balancing the fast fashion industry, the pre-owned market ditches ‘the new’ and offers us the possibility of making use of what’s already here.
It’s a matter of changing one’s attitude as a consumer, to get with the times and start making conscious, long-term decisions for one’s wardrobe. In the words of designer and climate activist Vivienne Westwood: ‘Buy less. Choose well. Make it last.’”
