The news: Rent the Runway has begun selling resale and new luxury items on an Amazon Fashion online storefront.
Growing interest in resale: We expect fashion online resale will continue growing at a solid clip thanks to Gen Z consumers’ commitment to sustainable consumption, along with their love of thrifting and throwback fashion trends.
One notable challenge: A slowing economy may not be a major boon for resale given that preowned fashion apparel and footwear still fall into discretionary spending.
The big takeaway: Resale is no longer seen as undesirable, but rather as a way to score unique wares and to reduce firsthand consumption, particularly among Gen Z and millennials.
