Vestiaire bans fast fashion brands 

This is in support of the circular fashion economy.

Vestiaire Collective announced it will ban fast fashion brands from its platforms to encourage consumers to choose quality over quantity. 

This is also in support of the circular fashion economy, the company noted.

“Fast fashion has no value, and even less in resale. We’ve taken this step because we don’t want to be complicit in this industry which has a tremendous environmental and social impact,” Dounia Wone, Vestiaire Collective’s Chief Impact Officer 

“The current system encourages overproduction and overconsumption of low-quality items and generates huge amounts of fashion waste.”
