How Pre-Loved Fashion Is Saving Our Planet

Categories: Everything Luxury.

There is no denying that fashion is becoming more sustainable and eco-friendly, it’s now trendier than ever to care about the world. The luxury fashion industry is using more sustainable methods, advocating upcycling and using ethically sourced materials. However, the fashion industry isn’t the only thing becoming more sustainable – so is the way we buy fashion and use it.

When purchasing luxury goods, now is the perfect time to consider shopping pre-owned fashion and buying from resellers instead of buying new from retailers. It’s at the very least one step closer to saving our planet, without sacrificing that stylish look of yours!

Saving The World With Sustainable Fashion

What is sustainable fashion – besides the biggest fashion movement lately. Sustainable fashion is focused on lowering the environmental impact of the fashion industry by recycling and upcycling fashion. You can make a variety of sustainable choices when choosing what you buy and where you buy it from.

Saving The World With Upcycled Fashion

Another way to be sustainable is to make sure that your fashion purchases don’t go to waste. Once something doesn’t suit your style anymore, the easiest thing to do is Marie Kondo your closet and throw it away, so you have space to replace it with something new. To be sustainable, you should make sure fashion doesn’t go to waste or end up in a landfill, and instead ensure it is “recycled”.

But how can you do this? By reselling and upcycling your old or unused fashion items; choosing to buy from resellers instead of from retailers and finally instead of buying new, consider buying pre-loved fashion.

Saving The World By Buying Designer Brands

There is a huge movement to save the world with sustainability. Sustainability can be sexy! There’s no need to stop buying designer brands like Gucci. You can show you care about the planet without excluding designer brands – you’re saving the world and you should look good doing it.

Buying designer brands is more sustainable in the long-term, because if you commit to buying a good quality designer product it will last a lifetime. When you are buying your next designer watch, choose a luxury brand that makes products that last a lifetime. Like the classic Rolex, renowned for their high-quality watches. Rolex watches don’t land up in landfills, because they can easily be used for a lifetime or resold. Timeless pieces can also be passed down from generation to generation when purchasing luxury goods.

Saving The World By Buying Vintage

Luxury fashion is sustainable because it is a timeless classic that never goes out of style. Buying vintage fashion is a great investment – if you buy from the right brand, at the right price, you could be the proud owner of a Birkin bag, for a fraction of its original retail price – this is the beauty of buying luxury vintage!

Buying luxury designer items ensures items retain their value and often increase in value over time, considering you look after them of course. In some cases, items of a somewhat rare nature when buying new have the potential to become vintage collectables.

Vintage designer withstands the test of time and stays classic throughout every changing season. If you want to get on-board with the sustainability movement, then you should buy products that retain their value over decades. Designer brands can easily be resold or consigned, instead of discarded. Consider buying your next Chanel handbag pre-owned.

Saving The World (And Your Bank Balance)

Buying from luxury brands and designer retailers can be expensive, but their products are made with tremendous craftmanship,  their handbags are hand-stitched, watches are handmade, and the finest quality material is used. They last a lot longer than fast fashion which is mass-manufactured in factories and lasts one season before becoming damaged, unusable or out-of-season.

If buying luxury designer brands straight from the retail store is outside of your budget, you can still have your luxury designer cake and eat it sustainably too. By buying pre-owned luxury brands and selling to resellers. This way when you Marie Kondo your life, and cleanse your closet, you don’t throw away money, you exchange your old designer for new designer.
