Lot 647 Stella McCartney Trainers

Traditionally referred to as ‘vintage’, we now say ‘pre-owned’. And we are not talking about delving through the piles in the main street charity shop. Consumers are now flocking to sites to both buy and sell on garments and accessories, with designer labels a premium.

Lot 652 Givenchy Tan Leather Bag

Generation Z, or those under 25 years old are 33% more likely to have resold clothing online than consumers over the age of 60. They are also disenchanted with consumerism and see the option of both selling and buying designer labels as a natural progression. Hence the dramatic change in fashion, if you excuse the pun, as pre-owned is now the new trend in designer retail.
