Finally, VIC is a monthly online rental service for fashionable and sustainable items. VIC handpicks selected brand partners that can guarantee on the traceability of their items for a more transparent and fairer fashion industry.
VIC’s disruptive business model blends together the latest economic trends of sharing and circularity.
People in the community can access sustainable brands (Premium and Prêt-à-porter) for a fraction of the usual price by using VIC’s sharing platform.
