These are just some of the brands that are changing how we look at luxury fashion. They are proof that designers can (and should) ensure the clothing they deliver to us is of the highest quality while still respecting and protecting our planet and all living creatures. Quality, fair trade, and environmentally-friendly practices should be the trademark and norm for all clothing brands! So while expensive clothing doesn’t necessarily come with a guarantee of ethical practices right now, with the rise of more conscious luxury brands like these, someday—hopefully soon—it will.
Vintage luxury fashion
Shopping second hand is one of the most sustainable choices you can make when it comes to fashion. By purchasing something pre-loved, your hard-earned money isn’t directly contributing to the resource-heavy production of brand new garments. Instead, you are keeping clothes from landfill by giving them a second life.
Whether you’re on the hunt for a cult-classic Burberry trench but don’t want to buy from the brand directly, or you’d love to support animal-friendly luxury brand Stella McCartney but balk at the price tag, pre-owned may be the way to go.
Next time you’re in your favourite second-hand shop, why not have a look for luxury and designer labels? You never know what unique treasures you might find. If you prefer shopping for vintage items online we recommend looking at Vestiaire Collective!
When in doubt, rent it out
Nowadays, many websites allow you to rent dresses, items, and bags for an event, so think about this option next time you want to dazzle the crowd or add a touch of glam to your outfit!
