What makes Chicfashic different?

All you need in one place

Chicfashic facilitates the exchange of second-hand apparel through swapping, selling, renting and buying – all in one place.

Local & Global

At Chicfashic, we promote the human connection, community and trust around the world. Our unique online open-wardrobe sharing mechanism allows people to rent or lease wardrobe items directly from other individuals, making shopping cheaper and more sustainable than it has ever been. These concepts help to dramatically reduce our fashion footprint.
At Chicfashic, all parties involved can benefit from each other. Gains in terms of assets and finance, but also in support and sentiment.

People coming together and sharing the values of sustainability provides encouragement and strength for the community. A sustainable future can be reached only if we take care of- and conserve valuable resources, reduce waste, and, preserve natural beauty and culture. We act local and connect globally.

Safe shopping

Leave behind the world of scammers and bad products. At Chicfashic, our team personally checks the profiles of all members. Payments are made through our secured website. Our team is always ready for you if you notice anything suspicious or unsatisfactory.

Since our exchanges occur locally, you have the chance to meet the seller and assess the quality of the apparel yourself. Each person is strongly encouraged to tell a story about who they are and about the clothes they are selling. We want to inspire people to look deeper and seek to understand people beyond their first impression and to share their values.

Following your purchase or lease, you can rate the seller’s wardrobe service! Reviews allow for a genuine evaluation. Enjoy a safe shopping experience!

No Packaging

The best way to exchange items is without packaging. At Chicfashic, we facilitate the personal exchange of items. This means that there is no need for extravagant packaging, and items can be traded simply. Where in-person exchange is not possible, we provide light-weight reusable bags to protect the quality of your apparel.

The many conventional layers of packaging create masses of waste and consume a lot of resources. Usually, when we order an item online, it comes wrapped in plastic bags, boxes stuffed with tissue or bubble wrap and covered in tape. It makes the package heavier to transport and overall, there is a significant increase in emissions and fuel costs.

Low Impact Shipping

The local exchange of garments means low-impact transportation. Hop on your bike or take a pleasant walk to collect a new item for your sustainable wardrobe! We also facilitate the exchange of apparel through cycle couriers – a zero emission mode of transportation!

Traditionally, garments are transported by ship, train or plane, across the globe and then by truck to get to retail stores. Shipping is responsible for 18-30% of all the world’s nitrogen oxide (NOx) pollution and 9% of the global sulphur oxide (SOx) pollution, as much sulphur output as 50 million cars.

Shipping your garments would also mean alienation and isolation of people. We hope to work against the individualistic trend of society, and create a sustainable fashion community where we share a vision, mission and positivity. In-person exchanges allow for the exchange of not only the items themselves, but also great fashion tips, new ideas and possibly even new friendships.
