Today's largest resale website opened in 2009, when enterprising Frenchwoman Fanny Moisan decided to deal with the consequences of the crisis in a very original way. She saw that many bloggers began to sell branded items, called friends and launched a resale platform. Since then, the company has raised $37 million in investments (including Condé Nast, by the way) and has grown to a staff of 340 employees and offices in 48 countries.
Almost every major brand can be found on the site, Moisan says, but right now there is a demand for Dior, Fendi, Off-White and Celine from the Phoebe Philo era. “Many people come to us for unique and rare items, such as vintage watches and bags, as well as for must-haves from the latest collections that have just been sold out,” the founder of the company adds. The procedure for selling Vestiaire Collective is extremely simple, and sellers often manage to get up to 80% of the original price of a luxury item back. The system of badges helps to navigate the platform: they are issued to those who have made at least two successful transactions in the last four months. Today, the platform has eight million customers worldwide, and by the end of 2019, Vestiaire Collective will finally add Russia to the delivery area. resale platforms for luxury items.

Vestiaire Collective's specialists act as intermediaries between people who sell clothes, shoes, jewelry, textiles, sports equipment and other products of famous brands and buy them. At the same time, each product, as we are promised, is checked for compliance with the brand and condition. For this, the online store takes a commission from both participants in the transaction.
