Many favourite brands from the hottest online fashion retailers are made in unsustainable ways. Thankfully, a lot of these retailers and brands offer ways to enjoy the fashion without all the related problematic business models. And Nasty Gal is no exception!
But like most of our other fave fashion brands, Nasty Gal’s suppliers are a part of a nexus of human rights violations foisted onto unknowing fashionistas. And while Nasty Gal did a sustainable collaboration back in 2013 with my ethical favourite, Reformation, there’s not much on offer in the way of ethical style here.
Except for one section of the website.
For Nasty Gal Vintage
Autumn is coming and with it, the promise of heavily 70s-inspired trends. If the FW15 fashion shows were anything to go by, sidewalks and cafes are about to be crowded with epic flares, Beck hats, earth tones and flower child sensibilities. Luckily, Nasty Gal Vintage has got you covered.
A thrift shop this is not: these pieces are not only legit vintage, but legit designer. Labels like Comme des Garcons, Maison Martin Margiela and Betsey Johnson permeate the site, with price tags to match. They say they’ve done all the legwork for you, and they delivery on that promise. The pieces featured on this site pass the highest fashionista standard for quality and trend-worthiness.
