Our Mission

Our mission is to build the world’s most diverse progressive home of fashion. Our team is dedicated to enhancing and developing the Depop experience to serve the needs of our global community.

Depop exists to empower the next generation to transform fashion. We are a community-powered fashion ecosystem that's kinder to the planet and kinder to people. We give our audience something they can't get anywhere else - unique fashion, with amazing people and the chance to create a better future by showing up as their full selves, at full volume.

 

We operate on three values:

  1. Circularity - We’re taking the circular economy mainstream. Changing people’s relationship with clothes and making it easy to choose options that are kinder to the planet. 
  2. Self expression - We’re a space for self expression that encourages millions to explore, connect and find their identities through style. 
  3. Opportunity - We’re building a home of fashion where everyone feels welcome and anyone can succeed on their own terms.
