Vintage is the antithesis of fast-fashion. Re-wearing second-hand clothing displaces the demand for virgin resources – both oil (synthetics) and cotton have huge environmental impacts – and also keeps clothing out of landfills.
Xanthia Vintage is a small, one woman show based out of Beautiful Lennox Heads, about 20 minutes south from Byron Bay. Her pieces are amazing quality and always unique. I had a beautiful little adventure at the crack of dawn a few days ago wearing a few of her pieces – nothing more invigorating that stripping between outfits at dawn, by the ocean, in winter!
