With over 30 years of collective experience in fashion and e-commerce, our team all share a disconnect with the current industry, its values, and how it works for small brands. From high barriers to entry, big financing needed for sample collections, to the tens of thousands of investment required to fulfil an order to a major retailer before you can even get your foot in the door. Turning brilliant design ideas into a professional retail company is hugely challenging. The product might be amazing but logistical issues such as manufacturing, fulfilment, and providing quality customer service all with a tiny team can cause brands to fail before they've even got started due to a simple lack of experience and resources.

Alongside these issues fashion labels have a ethical and social responsibility to be conscious of their environmental and social footprint, but with major retailers holding all the power they can take advantage of young brands giving them such unfair margins and payment terms that means they have no choice but to manufacture cheaply / unethically or face going it alone and not see as much success.

So with all of these issues in mind the concept for The Drop Shop was born. We're an online platform that supports and showcases emerging brands whilst taking away their stress by dealing with all the logistics and also allowing them to be ethical, responsible and sustainable via us. The brands we partner with are able to concentrate on being creative whilst we take care of all the rest from manufacturing through to delivery. By shopping with us you are directly supporting small independent brands and helping to change the game, because fashion doesn't have to cost the earth.

#fashionthatdoesntcostthearth

Responsbile

We believe in reducing the impact of fast fashion and therefore we only make a product once an order has been placed, dramatically reducing waste left over at the end of each season.

Most high street brands are left with tons of waste each year from unsold goods which is then sent to landfills rather than sold to prevent the “cheapening” of their brand, we are against this practice and we only make what we need.
