BUY AND SELL PRE-OWNED LUXURY FASHION
Vestiaire Collective was launched in 2009 with the aim of offering a community platform on which members are able to buy and sell, top of the range and pre-owned luxury clothes and accessories. The catalogue is comprised of the most inspiring items coming from the wardrobes of hundreds of thousands of users throughout the World. This selection meets the specific expectations of buyers from across the entire World. Each week, more that 20,000 new items selected by a team of stylists are put on-line and add to strengthening a permanent catalogue of 400,000 products. The site stands out on the basis of its unique quality control. 100% of the products are physically checked by a team of experts. More than 100,000 new members sign up each month, and join an international community of 4 million members. These generate more than 3 million transactions each month. To date 180 people are employed by the start-up and spread across the offices in Paris, New York, London, Berlin and soon Milan and Madrid.
