eBay Australia – All In On Pre-Loved Fashion
Last week, eBay Australia showcased its commitment to pre-loved fashion by hosting the eBay Pre-Loved Runway during the Afterpay Australia Fashion Week, demonstrating its dedication to the promotion of sustainable fashion.
An eBay survey found that 30% of Australians stated that half of their wardrobe consisted of pre-loved fashion, and 45% of Aussies said they have increased their purchase of pre-loved fashion over the past two years.
In short, Australians want to save money and stay fashionable, and eBay Australia believes they can be the go-to platform for these shoppers.
To that end, eBay Australia went all out during Australia’s Fashion Week with its pre-loved runway. Here are some photos of how the company activated its promotion at the event.
