If like us, you watched Hasan Minhaj's new Fashion episode a few days ago - "fashion is the second-largest pollutant of our environment, after the oil and coal industry" - you're probably cowering in your closet, tormented by all the new clothes you bought recently.
Enter Rewear.in, a kind new fashion initiative that allows you to be the considerate person you really are, all the while still updating your wardrobe. How? Hold our hand and walk out of your hiding place and we'll explain.
Rewear is a newly launched website that procures, restores, and sells pre-loved Indian wear from some of the country's priciest fashion designers. For the uninitiated, it's called "re-commerce".
Cheap + Chic: How to Buy On Rewear
Join Rewear as a member and shop the country's most coveted labels at more than 60% off. These gently loved clothes have been strictly inspected and laundered by the Rewear team, so you can expect them to be in excellent condition. Here's what we've bookmarked: a striking red Amit Agarwal dress begging to be taken to a party; an Anamika Khanna sari with serious vintage vibes; a colour blocked Payal Khandwala sari that can be the + 1 to your friend's Goa wedding; and a black velvet Sabyasachi kurta for winter. Add to this ruffled gowns by Shantanu and Nikhil, lehengas by Rohit Bal and saris by Tarun Tahiliani, and there's something for everyone.
Marie Kondo Your Closet: How to Sell on Rewear
This is where you and your overflowing closet come in. Besides buying more, Rewear also lets you sell your designer wear, declutter your closet and make money. For starters, your clothes must fall under their accepted list of designers. Send them details and images of the garments, and if accepted, the Rewear team will pick them up, and find them a new home through their re-commerce store. And of course, pay your dues at the end. More details here.
So listen, you know you're never going to wear that Sabyasachi or Payal Singhal outfit again, now that it's been seen three times at three different weddings. Which is why you need to be plugged into Rewear's ecosystem now! Don't skirt the issue.
