Introducing Now / Next a new Depop project taking creators and entrepreneurs from where they are now to where they want to go next.
This first edition focuses on circularity, something core to the Depop experience. We want to get closer to and learn from the people in our community working to keep fashion in the circulation. Keeping the stories, the culture, the values and the designs moving hands, bodies and wardrobes, for as long as possible.
We selected a handful of independent brands shaping a new fashion culture that’s kinder to all people and the planet. Over the coming months we’ll be sharing more of their stories. For now, here’s a quick introduction.
MEET THE CREATORS
