Say no to fast fashion! Buy vintage!

Buying vintage & second-hand clothing is a sustainable solution because garments already exist so you can save all the negative impact of production.

Fast fashion facts (yes, we are a slow fashion store):

- In 2015, the fast fashion industry used 80 billion cubic metres of freshwater.

- The fast fashion industry produces 97% of our clothes overseas.
