Fast fashion is fuelling overconsumption and overproduction, and it's the number one cause of our planet's textile waste problem.
We want that to change.
Last year we announced a 3-year plan to progressively ban fast fashion brands from our platform.
But what is fast fasion? Together with a committee of experts, we've defined fast fashion for the first time. Key elements include very low prices, frequent collection updates, a broad product range, intensive and frequent promotional periods, and a swift production cycle. With this information, we've identified and banned a further 30 brands - including H&M, Gap, and Bershka - from being bought, sold, or listed with us.
Shopping pre-loved with Vestiaire Collective has a 90% lower environmental impact compared with buying new. That's why we're challenging our Collective to join our movement and take a pledge - whether it be a complete fast fashion ban on their own wardrobes or a commitment to stop buying fast fashion for the rest of the year.
