Thrifting: The New Fashion Trend in Pakistan.
Gone are the days when one would spend thousands and thousands of rupees on fashion, upgrade your wardrobe on a budget. Get the best clothes, get thrifting!
Since the beginning of time, the evolution of Fashion has been continual and fast. Over the years, we’ve witnessed trends come in Fashion and go out of it. Recently, however, there has been materialized a new idea; the concept of Sustainable Fashion or Thrifting. Sustainable Fashion is merely an umbrella term; the bigger goal; the end picture. It is fashion that is Slow, Ethical, Minimalist, and Zero-waste.
Recently on the rise in Pakistan, has been the trend of Thrifting. Thrifting is a concept that includes purchasing second-hand clothes or any other items which have been previously used at extremely discounted rates.
The entire point of thrifting is to be able to afford an entire wardrobe upgrade without having to spend an arm and leg. Moreover, the more important aspect of thrifting is the global effect it has. It is called sustainable fashion for a reason, you must either completely cut off from the word or just plain ignorant to not consider the current global warming situation. The need to sustain and preserve the environment has never been more important than now.
The idea is to rotate clothes amongst one another, without having to waste more cloth or material in making new products. How many times have you bought a really cute dress but only worn it once or twice because repeating it too often is just weird? We’re all guilty of that. Wouldn’t it be just easier if we exchanged clothes from one another? It’ll save us the costs and time of having to look for and purchase new outfits because you can easily find excellent condition and quality items on such thrift stores.
