old is the mode

A Taiwanese octogenarian couple who run a small-town laundry service have become an online fashion sensation by modelling abandoned clothes on Instagram....
The couple hope to use their new social media clout to promote the concept of “environmental fashion”.
“Instead of following fast fashion and keep buying new clothes, we hope people can see that old and second-hand clothes can be fashionable if you arrange and combine them in new ways,” said Reef. “This would cause less damage to the earth and the environment.”

    This was done in the US during the 60's and 70's. I went with friends to Greenwich Village and the East Village.

    I bought a French Sailor's Shirt. Didn't last long.

    Still know folks in NYC that wear old, fashion clothes.

    Mostly a young person's activity.

    Then there're are all those who depend on Salvation Army and Charity.
