Under Anthony’s leadership, the company’s expertise has expanded from rental to resale, and into garment refurbishment to bring otherwise unsaleable clothing items back into the supply chain, significantly increasing their lifespan.

With a strong social responsibility agenda, ACS has become an accredited Living Wage provider, a disability confident employer and signatory of the race at work charter. ACS has also been awarded for its employee health and well-being initiatives and has submitted a B-Corp application.

Anthony will outline his core mission to improve the sustainability of the fashion industry, and be more socially accountable, while continuing to increase ACS’s turnover.
