    SUSTAINABLE FASHION PREDICTIONS | Is it just me, or does it feel like sustainable fashion has hit the big time? Whatever the case, it’s certainly here to stay! 🙌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I shared my sustainable fashion predictions with @openforvintage as part of their Industry Insider series last week, and here's a snippet of what I wrote: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Sustainable materials will edge out harmful alternatives 🌿 2. Vintage and pre-loved fashion will increase in demand and value 👜 3. The way we engage with fashion is changing – think of fashion rental and clothes swaps (cough cough, @haulternativecloset!) ♻️ 4. Transparent brands will beat the rest 🔍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Head on over to the @openforvintage blog for a full read, or to my own for my favourite vintage picks from their site! 😘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @nadinebanks

It’s very easy to lose an hour (or three) scrolling through Open for Vintage‘s expertly curated collection of clothing, jewellery and accessories. Expect exceptional vintage styles from designers like Dior, Givenchy and one of the largest online collections of vintage Chanel.

    Ideal for tracking down key designer styles you missed and have been coveting for years and years Open for Vintage has partnerships with some of the most coveted independent vintage boutiques worldwide, from Notting Hill to Tokyo. Making re-discovering the pair of shoes or bag that got away all that easier and keeping luxurious styles in circulation as long as possible.

    With Open for Vintage sharing that by ‘connecting customers with vintage, we are creating a cycle, pivotal around preserving and re-housing fashion’s most quality craftsmanship from decades past.’

    Designed to last for a lifetime rather than a singular season luxurious designer pieces provide a way to invest in pieces that you’ll wear forever. Consuming style more consciously and sustainably by passing pieces onto loved ones or, selling to reinvest.

    Supporting independent vintage stores and encouraging a more circular initiative within the luxury fashion industry is something we can wholeheartedly get behind.
