RENTAL/RESALE are an integral part of the upcoming circular business model of next generation fashion consumption. As the consumption of rental fashion has increased in the past few years, it is inevitable that the rise of such platforms will certainly lead to the dent in the world of mass-produced fashion. The fast fashion industry is reported to produce 1.92 tonnes in textile waste every year and has been reported to rise global emissions by 50% in 2030 (Igini, 2022). The fast fashion industry is known for their notoriously unsustainable and unethical practices from wastefulness to unfair wages paid to workers and their unsafe work environments.
Moreover, the fashion industry is one that is constantly changing and evolving. Over time, the new replaces the old. People are constantly influenced either by popular culture, including musicians, movie stars, social media, and royalty etc. The fashion industry today has an approximated $350 billion in value in 2022. The rental fashion industry is one that started a decade ago and has increased in popularity overtime. They offer the opportunity to enjoy high end clothing without having to spend a fortune. Instead of consumer spending a large sum and investing in only a single piece of clothing, these companies offer the apparel for a fraction of the retail price, with the agreement of returning it after a specified amount of time.
Soon, the retail industry reeled from profits after taking a heavy blow from the entrance of rental fashion platforms. The rental market is predicted to significantly grow between 2021 and 2031. The market was previously projected to produce US$ 1.8 billion by 2021. Despite declining garment sales, the clothing rental industry is expanding its assortments under different subscription models to reach clients. The subscription model generates recurrent income in addition to providing potential clients with expertise with clothes rental businesses. Rental as a concept has grown fast. But today’s shoppers are discerning. They are increasingly questioning the practices of companies and are putting their money where their morals are.
