VISIT LIVE! Resale, rental & repair: Fashion’s new circular opportunity

According to global retail strategist Roland Berger, by the mid-part of this decade (in 2025) most of the growth in the mainstream fashion market will be generated by circular business models with the second hand market growing 11 times faster than traditional retail. If that growth rate continues, second hand fashion will be bigger than fast fashion by 2030.

With this in mind, it is clear that fashion business who are serious about generating growth need to be serious about integrating circular models into the heart of their business strategies.
