VFILES RUNWAY IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DEPOP TOOK OVER THE BARCLAYS CENTER DURING NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

As 2019 slowly comes to an end,  the heavy hitters of this season of New York Fashion Week reinforced that New York Fashion Week doesn’t just belong to buyers, press, and media, it also belongs to the people.  VFILES, an experience-based social networking platform, and Depop, a marketplace app, made New York Fashion Week not only about the designers but made it a social event of the fashion season for all to enjoy.

VFILES Runway in partnership with Depop took over the Barclays Center in Brooklyn with a community-sourced extravaganza designed to showcase a global group of emerging creators.  Although this is not the first time VFILES has sponsored a group show, it is the first time VFILES has joined forces with Depop. The event was held on the arena floor of Barclays Center and tickets to the sold-out event were available to the general public. It is the 11th time VFILES has sponsored a group show, but the first time it is joining forces with Depop.  The SS20 collections by the winning designers were joined on the runway by musical guests: Rico Nasty, Brooke Candy, Erika Jayne, YG and more.

VFILES shop also launched on Depop with a limited-edition merchandise capsule, featuring vintage pieces sourced from Depop, adorned with VFILES logos as well as t-shirts designed by the runway winners DI DU OFFICIAL, WESLEY HARRIOT, NICO VERHAEGEN, and PIERRE-LOUIS AUVRAY
