Resale is fashion’s fastest growing market. Expanding three times faster than new apparel, according to the latest report by US Resale platform, ThredUp, old is the new new, but is it as sustainable as billed, or just encouraging more consumption?

A vast and varied commercial landscape, the rocket-fuelled resale market sees everything from sophisticated online platforms offering curated collectables to easy ways to get unwanted clothes out of your closet, shipped and sold. The stated shared belief across such diverse offerings is old clothes are better than new, but the true circularity of the resale model is starting to be called into question.
