Our Story 

Girls Trade was started as a secret Facebook page in 2014 in Melbourne. It started as a place where just for friends to swap and share their clothing. Members only find out about the page through word of mouth and needed to be invited by a friend. 

Our members now buy, rent and sell preloved clothing. We now have over 60,000+ members and growing.

As the page grew to such a large size, we decided to put more effort into making the community better. So, we devised a questionnaire to find out what our members thought of the platform, identified areas of improvement and get them to tell us what they loved!

Based on the 1,000+ responses our GT girls wanted to see a mobile app that made transactions safer, built more transparency through a rating system and a way to eradicate fast-fashion. 

So over the past 12 months we have been working away to make that happen!
