People these days are much more aware of the environment, especially when it involves fast fashion. Clothes that are not sold or taken off the rack usually end up in landfills which are harmful to the earth. YIKES!
Rather than contributing to fast fashion, many turn to thrift shopping for a more sustainable lifestyle. You never know what hidden gems you can find in a thrift store! Here is a list of places you can visit to avoid fast fashion:
(Friendly reminder: due to MCO, operating hours may change hence we try our best to source the accurate timing)
Family Bundle @ various locations
Family Bundle has a lot of hidden gems. There are a total of 15 locations available for you to visit! The one that is most frequented would be their Ampang Waterfront branch which is directly facing a highway. Most of their clothes are from overseas and if you dig deep enough you might find branded ones like Uniqlo and Levi’s. Visit their website at familybundlemalaysia.com to get the locations of all their branches!
MODO Japan Preloved @ SS15
A hidden gem in SS15, MODO Japan Preloved is a small store that features preloved clothes of Japanese brands! They even sell luxury branded items such as Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior. Maybe you can try your luck here 😉 SS15 parking can be a hellish nightmare hence it’s suggested that you avoid peak hours or just opt to take the LRT instead.

Tel: 012-381 9666
Vintage Moonriver @ SS15
