Marc Bain, Quartz’s fashion business reporter, buys all but his essential clothing items used, from peer-to-peer marketplaces and full-serve consignment stores, off and online. What does he know about trends in fashion that are increasingly driving the future of the business?
Join our video conference call tomorrow (Friday, Aug. 16) at 11am, to take part in a discussion about an important emerging trend in the fashion business with Marc and managing editor Kira Bindrim. On the call, they will discuss:
- The burden that the growth of fast, cheap fashion has imposed on natural resources and the environment.
- The rapid rise of online marketplaces and consignment stores that sell used clothing, including online high-end consignment store The RealReal, which recently went public at a valuation of more than $1 billion.
- Why mainstream retailers like H&M, Eileen Fisher and Macy’s are selling used items.
- Who’s driving innovation in recycling materials.
