LOV NA MODNO BLAGO

Predstavite nam se ukratko. Ko su Natasa i Vanja?  Vredni amateri ovog segmenta, ali sa ozbiljnim backgroundom u modnoj industriji :) Ann Handley, možda najuticajniji marketinški stručnjak, je rekla: “Budite amater. Ne mora sve što radite da bude dobro, posebno u početku.” Možda zvuci otrcano, ali stvarno verujemo da je najbitnije da to bude nešto čemu ste stvarno posvećeni i u čemu uzivate, jer se to veoma lako ogleda u biznisu, i uspećete da prenesete deo te ljubavi i na vaše kupce/klijente ili relevantnu populaciju koju želite da imate za kupce. Kako ste došli do imena Such A Tavan?  Tavan je tako uobicajen prostor za odlaganje “nepotrebnih stvari”, tako da se I naziv nametnuo sam po sebi. A posto je...

The Future of Fashion Is in the Past

For many style hounds, vintage and archival pieces make up the core of their wardrobe. Now, the fashion industry is beginning to catch up.

Scouring eBay and spending hours flicking through racks at consignment shops has long been a sport for the fashion-obsessed, but for many people, sourcing vintage and secondhand designer clothes seemed like a time- and money-consuming gamble with unfavorable odds.

6 Reasons to buy used designer clothes

#1 Save The Environment What may be unfit for someone else might be perfect for you! The clothing industry is a pretty wasteful one and when you take into account of both the manufacturing process and the environmental costs involved in clothing that’s quickly thrown away and ends up in landfill is pretty frightening.

Va-va vintage – the rise and rise of resale

Expected to be worth $50bn by 2023, the pre-loved market deserves a second look.   In a warehouse in Tourcoing, on the French-Belgian border, sit hundreds of Hermès Birkin bags. There are also hundreds of Chanel 2.55 handbags, a bunch of Nike trainers and dozens of rails of clothes that are far more varied: Balenciaga sweaters jostle with lace Chloé dresses, alongside contemporary pieces by labels such as Ganni and Acne. Although often pristine, and frequently with hang-tags from department stores intact, none are new: they are some of the pieces offered for sale on Vestiaire Collective, a website that is part of the burgeoning and multifaceted business of second-hand clothes. More seductively termed “resale” or “pre-loved”, they comprise a...
