What if the concept of renting services also could be applied and work to replace fast fashion?

With the recent rise of the so-called ‘sharing economy’ seeing owners connecting with users through services like Uber and Airbnb, we wonder about the phenomenon’s application to fashion.

If the concept of renting could solve young people’s need for a quick fashion fix, could it also work to replace fast fashion?
