At Designer Wardrobe, our mission is to create a sustainable future for fashion by connecting individuals through our pre-loved clothing Marketplace. We believe that fashion should not come at the expense of the environment, which is why we are dedicated to reducing waste and promoting circular fashion.
Our vision is to empower consumers to make conscious choices by providing a platform where they can buy and sell high-quality, pre-loved clothing. By extending the lifecycle of these items, we aim to reduce the demand for fast fashion and minimise the impact of the fashion industry on the planet.
We are committed to fostering a community built on trust, transparency, and social responsibility. We strive to create a safe and inclusive space where individuals of all backgrounds can participate in a sustainable fashion economy.
Through our pre-loved clothing marketplace, we aim to inspire and educate our customers about the value of second-hand fashion. We provide a selection of stylish, affordable, and sustainable fashion alternatives, encouraging a shift towards a more mindful consumer culture.
Together, let's revolutionise the way we think about fashion, one pre-loved garment at a time. Join us in our mission to redefine the future of fashion.

Our resale initiative
It's our vision to ensure that clothing is loved for longer, so we're excited to introduce the latest addition to our Marketplace with the release of our resale widget, "Sell Later on DW".
Sell Later empowers our brand partners to make resale a breeze for their customers from the convenience of their own e-commerce website.
Since our Marketplace platform launched in 2015, it has connected hundreds of thousands of buyers and sellers just like you, so we can't wait to see the positive environmental impact that this innovative integration will have.
Just an extra 9 months of wear can reduce an items carbon footprint by up to 10%
WRAP research has shown that you can reduce carbon, water and waste footprints by around 4-10% each by extending the life of clothing by just 9 months. Source.
Even the little things, like the way you choose to pack and ship the items you sell can go a long way towards minimising your environmental footprint.
When it comes to packing your items, we're big fans of getting creative and repurposing packaging you already have on hand to keep single-use alternatives out of circulation.
When you're ready to ship what you've sold, we recommend using our "Book a Courier" service, which is powered by NZ Post, who offer a carbon neutral service for "person to person" sending.
