We would like to thank you all for joining our mission to make the fashion and design industry more sustainable!
Thanks to our team, brands, collaborators, partners and supporters, WLP grew to the next level - from being featured by Vogue Talents, speaking with the El Camino members and implementing our first Vinnova-funded project, engaging with new partners, growing our community to pop ups in 3 cities!
HIGHLIGHT NO 1: FROM 12 TO 24 BRANDS
Last year several cool new brands joined our marketplace - among them:
Emeka Suits with upcycled suits from Kenya, Limala with handknotted rugs from Morocco, Nada Duele with fashion and interior design made in Guatemala, Aketekete with beads jewelry and handwoven bags from Ghana, Balsa with rattan design objects and , Studio Conchita with glass jewellery from Mexico, Noh Nee Benin with fashion made in Benin, and IBKKI with unique vases handmade in Algeria.
HIGHLIGHT NO 2: OUR WLP FAMILY GREW
Mercedes joined our team as a Designer and Content Creator in April! She is based in Mexico City and comes from the beautiful city of Guadalajara. Mercedes takes care of all awesome designs you find on our website and social media. She even crossed the Atlantic to organize the pop ups in Frankfurt and Stockholm with us.
HIGHLIGHT NO 3: BUILDING A DIGITAL COMMUNITY PLATFORM
Thanks to the support of the Swedish Innovation Agency - Vinnova and our awesome team we developed the WLP Community Platform. The WLP Community Platform will give impact brands a space to connect and learn from each other as well as to collaborate in terms of joint creative projects, campaigns, editorials, photoshoots, and much more!
More news on that very soon!
HIGHLIGHT NO 4: WE GOT TO MEET YOU ALL!
We are very grateful that despite COVID we had the opportunity to meet many of you in Berlin, Frankfurt and Stockholm. It was a true pleasure to discuss sustainable fashion and design with you over a drink and some cool beats. A big thanks here to all the helping hands and our generous sponsors! We enjoyed our Pop Ups so much that we are already excited for the next ones to come in 2022. Stay tuned!
