Fair Fashion City Guide to
– Our top six Eco Fashion and Fair Fashion spots
Dear vintage and slow fashion aficionados. You may have spotted most of the following content in our Instagram Stories already. But now you have it neatly organized and written down: Our Vintage Guide to Amsterdam! After we already took you along for an Amsterdam Fair Fashion Tour past summer we finally wanted to show you the most beautiful and/or fun spots we found regarding vintage fashion, too. From »V« for Vintage treasures, to »P« for Pre-loved clothing to »B« for »Borrow, don’t buy!«
Let’s start super slow: If in need for a little garment fun, why not start the day with a stop at the LENA Library first, where you can borrow vintage clothing as well as selected pieces from fair fashion labels? Afterwards, there’s quite a selection of vintage & second hand stores awaiting you if you slowly make your way down north through the center of the city. We marked a few of our favorite spots regarding the hunt for vintage treasures, upcycled vintage garments that fit the latest street style and, last but not least, pre-loved designer items, to include something for every taste. Do you recognize some of the stores we included? What’s your secret favourite Amsterdam Store?
