Vestiairecollective.com, the leading trusted social site for the resale of designer and premium fashion is excited to announce the launch of Selling in the Australian market. Customers in the south pacific, who are identified as one of the most sustainable groups in terms of their fashion choices, will have the ability to detox their wardrobes and re-sell their beloved, designer items to customers alike.

To celebrate the launch, Vestiaire has collaborated with some of Australia’s most stylish and celebrated designers each curating an archive collection of their most recognised pieces from their personal and brand wardrobes, to be sold on Vestiairecollective.com. The designers involved include Pip Edwards and Claire Tregoning of P.E Nation, Alice McCall, Michelle Glew Ross of My General Store and Louise Olsen of Dinosaur Designs.

The Designer Series Collection is made up of pre-loved, luxury clothing and accessories. Pieces amongst the uniquely curated collection include a Burberry silver blazer from Louise Olsen, Celine slides from Michelle Glew Ross and Marc Jacobs cocktail dress from Alice McCall, all of which will be available to buy on Vestiairecollective.com from 25th July.

Carmen Hamilton, Founder and Author of Chronicles of Her has art directed and produced a series of portraits with each designer wearing pieces from their donated selection. Each piece of content was captured in the designer’s own homes or creative studios, illustrating them in their most natural environments showcasing their unique personal styles.

Vestiaire is consciously committed to re-selling authentic and quality products in the market place to worktowards a cleaner, greener and circular fashion and textile economy. “We are thrilled to collaborate on this project with some of the most coveted designers of Australia, with their treasured items captured through the lens of the exceptionally talented Carmen Hamilton” says Vestiaire co-founder FannyMoizant,

“The launch of selling opens up a whole new chapter in the South Pacific for Vestiaire Collective.I can’t wait to shop the closets of fashionable women in Australia.”

Vestiaire Collective is supporting Fashion Revolution, a global movement, which aims to secure a fairer, safer, more transparent and accountable fashion industry. 100% of all sales from the Designer SeriesCollection will go to help Fashion Revolution’s work to transform the way our clothes are made, sourced and consumed.

Fashion Revolution Australia’s Melinda Tually, said of the partnership “The circular economy and re-sale is firmly taking hold in the fashion industry and for good reason, clothes that are made to last should see multiple lifetimes. We owe it to those who make our clothes and the resources that have gone into them to ensure we extend their use as much as we can. Vestiaire Collective makes it fashionable to buy and sell our pre-loved items, which is a win for a more sustainable future so we’re excited to be part of its launch of Selling in Australia.”

Selling and the Designer Series Collection will launch on 25th July 2018 and will be available at Vestiairecollective.com
