Future Fashion Store becomes SECONTIQUE Stuttgart

Second-hand shopping means saving resources. You can donate well-preserved clothes and purchase elegant and special pieces in the new Secontique.

The new SECONTIQUE opened in Stuttgart on February 29, 2024! There are high-quality second-hand fashion for women and men on two floors. We are giving up the shared shop in the Gerber and moving to the city center, Eberhardstr. 12.

That will change: from now on there will be more space for fashion and events. The Future Fashion Store x SECONTIQUE becomes SECONTIQUE Stuttgart, supported by the Caleidoskop volunteer center. This will make the new store a social place for civic engagement by interested individuals, groups and companies.

The successful partnership with Future Fashion, the campaign for sustainable fashion, and the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ) remains in place and will be continued in the new boutique. An educational module in Secontique also provides comprehensive information material as well as current news on sustainable fashion and conscious consumption.

Further shopping opportunities for future fashion in Stuttgart

On our sustainable city tours you will get to know places in Stuttgart where sustainable fashion is already the norm. This will also stop at SECONTIQUE Stuttgart in the future.

In the Future Fashion Guide you can read how recycling old clothes works and what you have to consider as a clothes donor. We also introduce labels, seals and other options for action that bring sustainable fashion into the mainstream.

Future Fashion is fashion and education

Future Fashion is the movement for sustainable fashion and conscious consumption in Baden-Württemberg. We show what the future of fashion looks like by naming the social and ecological injustices along the textile value chain and offering a platform for alternatives and networking so that together we can make fashion fit for the future.
