Well who knew this would kick off the way it has, and what a night I had?!
Chanel muse Keira Knightley, her Klaxons musician husband James Righton, and 2ManyDJs, who kicked the party into another gear, were the surprise guests of the secret East London party earlier this week, celebrating the UK launch of new shopping app, DEPOP
I mentioned earlier that there would be another big social media happening real soon and it has arrived!
DEPOP is rising in popularity for its easy marketplace style ‘Shop-in-your-pocket’ app. A cross between ebay and Instagram, DEPOP has made selling on-line less of a headache ,and has basically put all your ‘social wash’ in one place. It has been become a huge hit with fashion and art lovers alike. It bagged $1million investment in the year of it’s official birth and even made ELLE’s top 50 apps!
The beauty of DEPOP is its ease to set up your own online store, cuts out the middle man, swap items, and engage with your audience FAST. Just take a picture and then share and chat about it on your network.
I met up with my humble friend, Simon Beckerman, founder of Depop and the uber cool Retrosuperfuture Sunglasses, what in brought him to think of this, considering you would have thought the big guns would have already done this (which they haven’t!)
Why not? It is what people are looking for and Social Media is already a major part of our daily lifes. So why not?
EVERYONE & EVERY STORE HAS SOMETHING TO SELL so GET ON IT!
The free app is available on iPhone and Android to follow shortly
