In April 2020, I cofounded a platform with Emily Sturgess, of Medley Vintage. Lots of dealers had lost access to their physical trading space due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, and many sell their stock exclusively online , so this unique virtual market enabled all brands to trade on a level playing field. We are able to showcase all traders equally and promote a circular fashion economy. We had our first market on 26th April 2020, and this was a huge success gaining a mention some incredible press such as Grazia, Who What Wear and Refinery 29. We now run monthly virtual vintage markets, as well as markets dedicated to reworked vintage, an affordable market for sale items and a seasonal market for vintage, reworked and homewares.
