is the new black!
There I was going through my wardrobe during lockdown and out came a little skirt I’d been hoarding since my twenties, a Ted Baker pair of skinnies I never wore, but was saving for ‘one day’ and a Zara jacket, just that little bit too short… I looked at these beautiful items and thought, they don’t work for me, but someone else would love them, I should sell them …
From there, it wasn’t long before the consignments started rolling in. Hanger quickly outgrew my spare-room and we found a retail space, which saw our ‘6 month pop-up’ turn into 13 happy months! We have since evolved into an online platform, to showcase the full collection of pre-loved items in our care, from wardrobe’s just like yours. We love the clothing that comes in and the stories they could tell and we love the women behind the clothes, the connections we’ve made, brought together through a shared passion for slow fashion.
There’s a lot of buzz about sustainable fashion and the positive effect on the environment. We’ve seen iconic designer labels, such as Burberry, launching ‘rental and resale’ departments and other big players following suit. This is huge! The way we shop for fashion is changing. I get so excited when I hear women compliment each other and say “ah, its Hanger” or “I got it at a thrift shop”. Re-sale clothing stores are becoming a brand in their own right, and in so doing, making circular fashion the new black!
