Closet Porter was established over 17 years ago in the form of multiple high-end fashion boutiques scattered across North Yorkshire.
Two decades later and the face of this successful start-up has changed from a bricks and mortar fashion business into an ultra-curated online consignment shopping experience. Infused with the founder’s unmatched sartorial expertise, Closet Porter offers an online platform from which to buy and sell designer clothing, and provides a bespoke concierge service to VIP sellers.
Concerned with the impact of fast fashion and the wastage it was creating, the brand focused on finding the solution, as opposed to being part of the problem and Closet Porter was born. Sustainability is at the very heart of Closet Porter and our unique luxe consignment concept paves the way for a circular economy by extending the life span of iconic, luxury garments and accessories.
What began as a luxury consignment boutique, has been transformed into not simply an online store that honours high end heritage brands, but a global movement that provides shoppers with unprecedented access to some of the most coveted luxury and vintage labels while empowering fashion connoisseurs to join the fight against fast fashion.
In 2019, Closet Porter brokerage partnered with investors to allow them to take their business model online with the focus of not changing what they have achieved over the past decade, but using it as a portal to educate the world on smart, sustainable fashion and position themselves as a rival to their peers in the market place.
Today the trusted Closet Porter community continues to champion sustainability and quality craftsmanship and encourages millions of shoppers to join the quest to put fast fashion in the past and drastically reduce the carbon footprint created by the luxury fashion industry.
