What Fashion Resale Can Learn from Cars and Consumer Electronics | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

There is little doubt that fashion resale is heating up. ThredUp’s July acquisition of Remix and Etsy’s acquisition of Depop the month before underscore the growing momentum in the space and the increasing size and scale of the players aiming to seize the opportunity.

Since 2019, the market has seen at least 4 IPOs, 13 major new entrants (e.g. platform launches or companies directly entering resale), 14 major brand and retailer partnerships and 6 Resale-as-a-Service start-up launches, according to The Future of Fashion Resale, a report by BoF Insights, a new data and analysis unit at The Business of Fashion.

UNITED STATES—Let’s be honest, us mere mortals are a little bit too busy to have our fingers constantly on the pulse of fashion and as such we can tend to miss out on the trends as they come and go with alarming regularity.

Gen Z’s ‘nowstalgia’ for Y2K fashion is leading to a thrifting explosion

It’s part of a rising trend of Y2K fashion and what has been called “nowstalgia” among Gen Z, who are reliving early 2000s fashion trends they were too young to experience or remember the first time around.

“I think there’s like this resurgence of what was so cool in the 2000s … now that it’s coming back, it’s like you want to infuse it with today’s pop culture,” said Lisa Sahakian, CEO and founder of Ian Charms.

It’s not just beaded necklaces coming back into style. Iconic fashion trends of the early 2000s like bucket hats, low-rise jeans, and babydoll T-shirts are all having a resurgence among younger consumers. This vintage renaissance has also led to an explosion in thrifting among Gen Z, and a rise in sites that sell thrifted clothing like Depop and Poshmark.

The frenzy over thrifted clothing is starting to manifest in brick-and mortar stores,
