Positively Circular

Designing waste out of fashion


Moving in powerful circles

Acting more positively with unwanted, unloved or worn out clothes is critical to the future of fashion. It’s time to rethink our approach to the clothes we wear and what happens to them after we’re finished.

From offering pre-order and made-to-order, to bringing rental, re-sale and repair services into the mainstream – we’re inspiring people to think positively about the value of old clothes. It’s about extending their life cycle and ensuring that things that can be reused don’t end up in landfill. That’s what we mean by making fashion ‘circular’.

Farfetch Secondlife 

Sell your designer bags, get some credit, and help give your pre-loved pieces a second lease of life, with Farfetch Secondlife, the handbag re-sale service we’re piloting.

Borrowed Luxury 

In June 2018, Browns announced an ongoing partnership with US-based rental and styling platform Armarium challenging the concept of traditional retail and extending the life cycle of garments. A year on, Browns continues to celebrate the approach and partnership and is committed to growing the number of Browns products available to rent.

It's in our DNA 

Farfetch was built on the premise of selling existing stock in small boutiques around the world – to better match supply and demand and reduce waste. This continues to be our model. We’re also the only online, multibrand marketplace that already has a vintage ‘pre-owned’ selection.

Sewn up and sorted

Meet The Restory – an incredible service that repairs, restores and reimagines your most loved luxury shoes and bags. We’re proud to have had them participate in our 2018 Dream Assembly cohort. Farfetch has also invested in Finery – a wardrobe management service that will help its customers get more wear out of the clothes they already have.
