There’s never been a better time—or more need—to buy your clothes used. At least that’s the case I made in a recent story on the burgeoning fashion resale market.
On Aug. 16, I joined Quartz members on a conference call about this fascinating, and growing, industry. What follows is a truncated version of my Q&A with Quartz managing editor Kira Bindrim, including questions submitted directly by those listening in. (Interested in watching past conference calls? You can check them out here. Plus keep an eye on your email for notifications about upcoming calls.)
Kira: Your story articulates an inflection point around resale—sort of a convergence of trends and forces that make now an important time for the resale industry. Why write this now?
