CURATING SINCE 2015

Retro Days was started in the month of December in 2015 from my house with an intention to let people own clothes that I like .. clothes that I buy after hours and hours of hunt in flea markets. Retro Days aims to be a unique shopping platform for people who love vintage and contemporary design. I try and present a curated collection of styles from different parts of the country, right from flea markets to local shops. Inspiration for curating has always been from street style and iconic fashion icons such as – Jane Birkin, Twiggy, Françoise Hardy, Patti Smith, Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, James Dean, John F. Kennedy, Steve McQueen, Humphrey Bogart and the list goes on. I hope to grow along with fashion and vintage enthusiasts around the world.

Do your bit for the planet!

Buying thrifted, vintage and second hand clothing helps in reducing waste and pollution. Every garment purchased second-hand means one less new one produced, which is important because regardless of material, the production of clothing is costly to the environment. Producing synthetic fibers like polyester requires lots of energy, as well as crude oil like petroleum; byproducts include toxic gases and chemicals. Sadly, pesticides used on most plants mean that even cotton and linen garments have a negative impact. Transportation-related pollution also decreases when clothing is re-used, as new clothes are much more likely to travel long distances before being sold than are their second-hand counterparts.

Obviously the very idea of thrift shopping is also being eco-friendly. That 7-Up logo tee can theoretically be worn forever, or at least until the threads are literally worn through. Someone scratches your back, you scratch someone else's back and so on and so on.
