Vestiaire Collective is calling for a more sustainable fashion future

The fashion industry overproduces. Every second, over 4,700 tons of clothing are made, while a truckful is burned or sent to landfill. Now, Vestiaire Collective, the platform for desirable pre-loved fashion, is calling time on fashion waste. By joining forces with a new generation of fashion activists, the platform’s aptly titled Collective for Change initiative is redrawing the fashion landscape, reducing waste, opening the sustainability conversation with expert insight and prioritising second-hand luxury.

Shopping Based on Your Zodiac Sign

How do you like to start your day? A quick scroll through Instagram and a glance at your horoscope? Okay, an in-depth analysis of your zodiac sign? Me too. Firstly, astrology has always been an important part of pop culture, allowing avid followers to be guided down a rabbit-hole of star signs and moon signs. And of course fashion has been no stranger to the world of astrology, either. Remember whimsical Dior? (I found this beautiful second hand midi skirt and this leather one both zodiac themed on Vestiaire Collective) Designers and brands launch cosmic collections of exquisite pieces devoted to all 12 signs of the Zodiac all the time. And not a single piece offers bad news of any kind. From Aries to Leo, Aquarius and Pieces, you can show the world just what’s your jam. In other words, for followers of astrology, dressing in its symbols is a way to place oneself within the universe, while projecting an aspect of personal identity.
