Luxe Collective

Liverpool-based Luxe Collective, founded in 2018 by brothers Joseph and Ben Gallagher, has carved a niche in the pre-loved luxury fashion market. The pair were inspired by their mother’s ability to buy affordable designer shoes from a second-hand website, leading them to start their own business focused on sustainable luxury fashion. The company offers customers the opportunity to trade in their designer items and purchase pre-owned luxury goods. It has successfully leveraged social media, amassing a following of 1.9m on TikTok, where it engages users with fashion content. Increased brand awareness helped sales hit £5.7m in 2023, up from £2.5m in 2021. In March 2024, serial entrepreneur and Dragons’ Den investor Steven Bartlett invested £100k in the business.
