Over the past decade, an increasing number of people have made notable changes in the way they consume. This in effect has forced others around them (especially millennials and generation z) to become more conscious of the impact their buying habits have on the environment.
As a knock-on effect of this, many brands and industries have changed their manufacturing and packaging processes. This is done in an attempt to decrease their negative impact on the environment and ultimately become more sustainable. The luxury industry, in particular, has made big moves to become more sustainable.
Sustainability in the Luxury Industry
This shift is being seen in the luxury fashion industry as well. Many luxury fashion brands have taken the plunge by changing their manufacturing process drastically on the road to becoming more eco-conscious. Sustainability in fashion occurs when recycling, reusing and repurposing happens at each stage of the items’ life cycle.
To become even more sustainable, an increasing number of people are buying into the pre-owned luxury market. The second-hand industry is becoming one of the world’s largest consumer segments.
In 2018, the demand for second-hand designer handbags rocketed. It is currently predicted that second-hand fashion is set to become a bigger market than luxury by 2022.
Fashion is an industry that everyone actively takes part in, the responsible way to indulge in this industry is through purchasing items of quality rather than quantity. A high-quality secondhand Louis Vuitton Keepall will last you for years longer than a brand new cheap knock-off.
As the end users of fashion, a consumers role in this global movement is to make sure that designer items are reused as many times as possible and recycled instead of discarded or forgotten. You may not want to wear those Jimmy Choo heels anymore, but there’s another girl out there that’s sure to love them!
Buying into the second-hand luxury market also allows consumers to update their closets more often, we noted more benefits in our reasons for purchasing pre-owned designer handbags piece.
