TELFORD - Online fashion sales have hit record levels in the first half of the year in the UK despite the cost of living crisis, according to new figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Sustainability experts reacted with concern to the data which revealed that average weekly online sales at textile, clothing and footwear stores reached a record £1.71 billion (£2.18bn) in the first six months of 2023.

It marked an increase from £1.58 billion (£2.01bn) in the second half of 2022 and surpassed the previous all-time high average weekly sales of £1.67 billion (£2.12bn) in the first half of 2021 created by a surge in online shopping driven by the pandemic.
