Depop | LIVE
On June 8-9, Depop, the London based fashion app, held its first major North American retail experience in NYC called Depop LIVE, a free event open to the public where shoppers, sellers, stylists, and creatives could engage in the “app brought to life” experience.
Over the weekend, Depop LIVE hosted talks, workshops, and performances that created a link between the creative and cultural aspects of fashion. Those who attended the event got the chance to learn from industry professionals as well as leaders in the Depop community.
One of panel discussions “Can Fashion Change the World?” focused on the push towards sustainable fashion in the new age. Another panel, “How to Build an Empire from your Bedroom” spoke to Gen Z about building a platform for yourself, an idea that Depop has been a pioneer of since its founding in 2011.
In addition to the panels, attendees participated in live performances, dj sets, and workshops where they could customize their own merch; and of course, it wouldn’t be a Depop event if there weren’t a multitude of vendors selling rare, one-of-a-kind items. Depop LIVE was a living, breathing version of the app we’ve grown to know and love.
