Community Love and Curated Fashion Platforms
There are plenty of curated platforms, trending on Instagram, that spotlight emerging fashion brands. delightfultack and 50-m Store are two of the most prominent in the UK. These concept stores exist to support and showcase up-and-coming fashion designers and artists, providing them with a platform to sell and present their collections.
