Fast fashion is one of the most polluting industries on the planet with a huge amount of textiles being put into landfill
A great amount of resources are used to create clothes that have a relatively short lifespan
The quality of vintage items is noticeably different, with modern clothes being made to break
Starting her business
GoodEye Vintage is a new business that officially launched its first collection on the 1st December 2019
Aimée aims to make buying vintage clothes seamless
Typically, vintage fashion requires a lot of hunting for garments at markets. Aimée seeks to simplify that process
