Everyday Runway:Trade Me Takes Pre-loved Fashion To The Runway To Encourage Kiwi To Go Circular

Auckland, New Zealand: New insights from
Trade Me’s annual
Circular Economy Report, due to be released in its entirety
next week, have revealed the treasure trove of sellable
fashion items New Zealanders are sitting on, with the
average Kiwi having seven unused items in their wardrobe
that could be turned into cash (totalling 11 million items
across the country). The total value of our unused fashion
pieces equates to $300 million for all of
Aotearoa.

To
encourage Kiwi to get behind a circular fashion economy,
Trade Me is offering free selling this week (20-26 February)
in its Clothing & Fashion category*, where consumers can
list and sell items for free, putting more in their back
pocket for their own purchases. With the increase in
listings, fashion lovers will have the opportunity to shop
for their favourite pre-loved brands, saving them money,
with less impact on the planet.

To coincide with the
week, Trade Me is presenting Aotearoa’s first-ever
pre-owned biddable fashion show – Everyday Runway.
Renowned fashion stylist and director, Sammy Salsa has
curated the one-of-a-kind show that will feature outfits for
every occasion – from urban streetwear to high fashion
looks. Over 100 pieces will grace the runway, having been
hand-selected by Sammy from Trade Me
listings.

“Secondhand fashion should be a staple of
every good wardrobe. Hunting out pre-loved looks gives you
access to labels and items at significantly reduced prices,
meaning fashion lovers can get their hands on brands they
might not otherwise be able to add to their
wardrobe.

“Trade Me is home to thousands of
incredible pieces. The variety and quality of the fashion
featured in the Everyday Runway show is a testament to the
incredible looks you can source – and list – on
