EP . 14 This Old Thing: How Vintage Fashion Can Save the Planet

Published: Aug. 10, 2020, 2 a.m.

Today we're exploring the topic of vintage fashion. With enough clothing already on the planet to last six generations, we look at how wearing old clothes is the future, and why supporting vintage brands is a feminist issue. We also welcome two brilliant vintage shop owners to chat with us about why consumers should get on board with the retro revolution. 

First up is Lapoze MacTribouy from Sooki Sooki Vintage who highlights the need for size diversity if vintage is to be a sustainable solution. Then we speak to Rachel Valentine from Strange Ray Vintage about the power of building a brand, and what role vintage leather has in saving the planet.
