Hawkeye Vintage is hitting us with the world’s largest unworn vintage fashion sale, and we’re here for it. With over 30,000 items, there is legit something for everyone, with original items from the 70s, 80s and 90s, and plenty of millennial pieces too.
We're big advocates for vintage fashion here at Urban List—not only is it always on trend, but it’s a great, sustainable way to shop and help the environment. Fast fashion is fucking it up, guys—in 2017 the ABC reported that Aussies are the world's second largest consumers of textiles, buying on average 27 kilograms of new clothing and other textiles each year.
Now, I’m all for spending your cash, but the issue with that level of consumption is that two-thirds of the clothes and textiles bought are made of synthetic fibres which are derived from petroleum. This ultimately means our planet can’t always break them down, so they ultimately end up in a landfill.
Enter vintage shopping. It’s one of the best ways to shop, and who doesn’t love one-of-a-kind pieces?
Coming from a mystery seller, the Hawkeye Vintage collection on offer is the world's largest vault collection. Prices are starting from $10, with over 10,000 items priced between $10-$20, but if you’re keen to splurge, you’ll want to bee-line for the premium section which will feature the likes of Chanel, Dior, Gucci and YSL, with a 100% authenticity guarantee.
The World's Largest Unworn Vintage Fashion Sale will run from May 15 to May 19, 10 am till 5 pm. Tickets are free and essential for entry. Don’t miss it.
