Case study – Circular Fashion Fast Forward: FARFETCH’s journey to embracing circular economy business models

In 2018, leading UK fashion brands decided it was time to shake things up. They signed up to ‘Circular Fashion Fast Forward’, a two-year project funded by Laudes Foundation and delivered by ReLondon and QSA Partners. One of those brands was FARFETCH, who used the project as an opportunity to explore the benefits of recommerce – allowing customers to trade in their good quality used products for resale through the trusted FARFETCH platform. This case study tells their story.


Headquartered in London, FARFETCH is a leading global platform for the luxury industry. The FARFETCH marketplace connects customers in over 190 countries with the world’s best brands, boutiques and department stores, delivering a truly unique shopping experience and access to the most extensive selection of luxury on a single platform.
