Founded in 2016, HIGHER is a clothing rental company giving its subscribing members access to a library of seminal and emerging designers. They currently have access to archive pieces from Comme des Garcons, Junya Watanabe, Issey Miyake, Martin Margiela and more, and aim to stock new season items once funds permit. HIGHER provides a dynamic wardrobe extension for those that appreciate fashion as a creative practice and will use their service to explore and experiment further. As a progressive, sustainable fashion concept, their business is founded on fulfilling the need for expression without the overuse of resources. They want to liberate their members from the consumer hangover of traditional shopping, as well as the confines of extensive clothes ownership. Their mission is to play a part in implementing the circular economy in the fashion industry. Through modernising the perception of clothes ownership, they believe they can initiate a more creative and sustainable fashion future.
