OUR MISSION

“The clothing industry is the second largest polluter in the world… second only to oil.”   -Eileen Fisher

“High Fashion Thrift is a movement to encourage people to shop more thrift. By unfollowing trends and shopping with environmentally friendly and ethical designers/brands, I believe that we can build a better relationship with our clothing that is more beneficial to ourselves and for our environment.”

-Brownie Brown, Founder
