Be Your Own Story
 

Platform Overview

WE BELIEVE WE HAVE THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE PLATFORM FOR DESIGNERS AND BRANDS TO PROMOTE THROUGH VIA OUR AWARD WINNING WEBSITE.

 

When you join us you can be assured of first class customer service, attention to detail and a commitment to working with your brand. Wear Eponymous only works with independent brands & designers that are true artisans so you will be in good company. Our goal is to allow brands the flexibility of a go-to destination to showcase their products in front of potential customers.

We understand that every brand’s needs are different and we bring a unique mix of stylish e-commerce, innovation, networking and business support through our sister site, BrandMade. It’s time to break down the barriers hindering small businesses in the fashion industry.  We do not seek product exclusivity or restrict you selling elsewhere and we feel the biggest boost to the economy is to create a commercially viable & sustainable platform to showcase independent designer talent.

Unlike some initiatives currently available to promote independent brands, we are not publicly funded and do not receive any financial support in return for promoting you. We are paving the way as an independent ourselves and work tirelessly to seek opportunities for our brands to be seen on as wide a platform as possible.

PRESS coverage

Our press coverage benefits all brands on our platform. The press coverage is for Wear Eponymous as a brand but it is often your products that will be featured if picked up by the media. This means your products are being exposed to national & international media for the one-off joining fee cost. This can lead to a variety of profile raising opportunities. Please be aware the press often selects products to fit the article and therefore there is no guarantee your products will be selected.
