Welcome to 2nd Take – Home to Exclusive second-hand designer clothes


How it all started

“I was trying to squeeze yet another pair of designer jeans into my already full cupboard with much frustration. How could it be that I had no space and I only ever wore my two favourite pairs?

So I stood looking at my overfull cupboard with pairs of jeans that no longer fitted me and THAT designer dress – the one that looked so good on me in the shop and that I had never had the chance to wear. It was an impulsive buy and it still had the label on it. I had lots of designer clothes, brand new, never worn. Such a waste of money. Such a waste of space!

Chatting to my friends it seemed I was not alone. They too had untold treasures and designer clothes that they hardly wore. We shared stories about buying designer clothes a size too small in the hope that we would lose those three kilo’s. We never did. Or the gifts they had received, but the colour was all wrong for them, or the fit wasn’t quite right. There were so many similar types of stories.”

– Bettina Berlep, owner and founder of 2nd Take
