Hello there 🙂
As a fashion editor, I'm endless inspired by small fashion brands that I'm looking for new ideas and fresh styles. Young and independent designers really keep me up to date by constantly developing what's next in fashion. They offer me moments of creativity and opportunities to redefine my personal style.
With many small businesses going through tough times, I think it is more important than ever to gather around them and provide our support, and it was wonderful to know that others think the same way. I have had a number of people approaching me asking how they can help keep small fashion companies alive in these difficult times. That's why I bring my ideas to one place. First of all, I share small fashion brands that you can support and the way many of them are already giving something back.
