[col span=”6″ span__sm=”12″]Our mission is to give everyone access to affordable, on-demand, luxury fashion, whilst supporting designers and supporting the environment.

We believe rental clothing is going to have a huge impact on the future of the fashion industry. This is largely due to the urgency we are facing in our fight against climate change and as a result of consumers beginning to really wake up to the impacts of over-consumption and the negative effects of fast fashion.

Our platform aims to give designers a way to profit from more sustainable practices and we want to give our customers a way to consume without being wasteful.

 

MEET TIFFANY, Founder of Style Collective

Tiffany grew up being absolutely obsessed with fashion, spending a large amount of her time buying and trying on clothes.  She amassed a huge amount of clothing, which was great when she was sharing a house with lots of girls at university who could borrow them, but when she moved back to London and lived alone, she realised they were wasted in her wardrobe on its own. Sadly she realised these clothes were going to waste, and then the idea of rental fashion quickly sprung to mind.

The initial idea she had was about a peer-to-peer platform, but she quickly realised that there was one group of people who were missing out on the rental sector in the UK altogether, and that was the designers themselves. With retailing harder than ever before in 2020, she realised together that this type of concept could be a really effective way for designers to tap into new customers and new income streams. And so, Style Collective was born.

Tiffany wears the Emma Lou dress by ROTATE Birger Christensen, available to rent now.

At Style Collective, our platform was born from a desire to give our customers the option to stop being wasteful with their clothing, but still give them the ability to wear the latest trend or must-have dress. As such, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

Of course, there is no definitive answer with regards to sustainability. There isn’t only one right option. Sustainability is a journey for brands, and its certainly a journey we are 100% committed to.  As a brand, sustainable practices ae something we will try our best to adhere to at all times, even though at some points we know it will be an uphill battle.

At the time of launch, we are focussing on the 5 areas of sustainability listed below, where we think we can have the most impact. These will change and grow over time as we grow, but please remember we are only small and we are trying our best

CIRCULAR FASHION
[/col]
[col span=”8″ span__sm=”10″]Our platform, by definition, is one of the most sustainable ways you can access fashion without being wasteful. Re-using items over and over again whilst maintaining their quality and caring for their longevity is what we are all about.

PACKAGING
[/col]
[col span=”8″ span__sm=”10″]When we send you your borrowed garment, we do so in lovely packaging which cost us a lot of money. We chose this packaging for its longevity, as we want you to send your items back to us in this exact packaging. By re-using the packaging over and over again as many times as we can, we will cause 0 waste. So please send it back to us!

CARING FOR CLOTHING
[/col]
[col span=”8″ span__sm=”10″]We do not dry clean our items using chemical processes. Not only does traditional dry cleaning damage the environment via water contamination, it also destroys our beautiful clothes.  We work hard to wash all items by hand using products from our partners at The Laundress. The Laundress are an eco-friendly line of detergent, fabric care and cleaning products. You can find out more about them here.

EDUCATION
[/col]
[col span=”8″ span__sm=”10″]We want to help educate a generation on the pitfalls of fast fashion and help our customers know what they should be doing in order to become more sustainable. We want you to understand what materials and processes are good or bad for the environment, and what brands have sustainable practices.
