Many upcoming and independent businesses have sadly suffered due to the stop and start lifestyle the whole world experienced this year. Yet, it is these businesses which are changing the fashion and retailing game through their innovative designs and sustainability efforts. It can be difficult to find these unique creators on Depop, given it is a huge platform. Scrolling endlessly through Depop led me to the discovery of these five dreamy designers, each with their own original vibe and dreamy aesthetic. With the year gradually drawing to an end, it may be the perfect time to restyle and revise your wardrobe.
