The term may seem like an oxymoron but is now a reality with Match & Style. Get ready to paint the town in a multitude of dresses and bags with friendly price tags.

Social gatherings definitely place a heavier burden on ladies than men. Ladies have their dresses, shoes, bags, jewellery, and makeup, all for different occasions, while men wear the same suit they have had in their closet for years. This may be a social construct but it’s still a reality for many of us, especially when wedding season rolls around. We can’t wear an outfit twice in one season, can we? Well, we have the solution — enter: Match & Style.

An online platform to buy and sell top finds of luxury preowned goods with no compromise on quality. This local startup has crafted a second-hand marketplace for high-end luxury designer items such as Gucci, Chanel, Cartier, and Dior. And with more than 1 million sales since the start, looks like this thrifting and sustainable trend is making its way to high fashion. The website gives you access to authentic products from your favourite fashion brands and trends without breaking the bank.

Besides the apparent advantage of buying from Match & Style — with discounts from 50 per cent to 80 per cent — you can also sell those once worn and never to be worn again dresses and bags; making you into your very own “businesswoman.” You free some closet space, gain a little extra spending money, give a little happiness to the next buyer and act sustainably. It’s a win-win situation.

“We believe that sustainable fashion specifically is growing as the consumer is much more aware of their shopping behaviour and is much more concerned with the health of our environment,” says Fatima Al Dirbasti, co-founder of Match & Style. “We take great honour in being part of a sustainable movement and creating a platform to give others a chance to also join the initiative of reducing the waste that’s associated with fashion,” she adds.

The brand aims to be known amongst the top e-commerce consignment destinations globally, and be the go-to place for pre-owned luxury brands of the best quality. Its goal is to further expand its seller’s profile to connect global buyers and sellers in one place whilst ensuring that each customer that buys an item from Match & Style receives high-quality designer goods at competitive prices. We don’t know about you, but we’re ready to online shop till we drop. ✤
