Thinking of what to wear for a special occasion? Is it for attending an important event? Or preparing an elegant dress/suit for a good friend's wedding? Whenever there are occasions, it is usually not easy to find clothing that is economical, make you look great, show respect to the occasion, and at the same time, meeting ethical fashion standards. This is when second-hand or pre-owned fashion can come into play.
Second-hand used to have a stigma of being for the poor, while vintage is a more elegant term and being more eagerly sought after. In fact, second-hand and vintage do intersect each other, particularly nowadays when consumers are increasing striving for quality and brand. Many of the so-called “second-hand clothing” indeed are high-quality luxury items which have only been worn once or twice, or never even worn. That is why the pre-owned resale luxury fashion is growing rapidly in these few years with rising number of players, including large corporations, tapping into the market.

When talking about the impact of fashion on the environment, we mainly consider two things, 1) how to produce a piece of clothing; 2) how to deal with it. In terms of how to deal with our clothing, numerous of researches have shown that increasing the number of times we wear a single piece of clothing is the best thing we can do to reduce its impact on the environment. According to a report from the UK on waste and resource planning, wearing a clothing item for an additional nine months can reduce the carbon, water and waste footprint of each garment by around 20 to 30%.
