Depop — the peer-to-peer shopping app that, in the nine years since its launch, has also become a community-based platform for creatives — recognizes that fashion is an integral mode of self-expression for the queer community. That’s why, in celebration of Pride Month, the popular app offered some of its LGBTQIA+ sellers a platform to share their thoughts — on style, identity, and more — with the entire Depop community.“Fashion helps queer individuals figure out their personal style,” Vivienne Gomez, a trans fashion designer featured in the campaign, told Refinery29. “But I think it goes deeper than that.” Gomez sells her designs through her Depop store page @parkavenueputa. “Wearing things that I create is the biggest way that I express myself through fashion,” she says. “Fashion plays a role in self-discovery and protection. Identifiers like clothing help the queer community stand in solidarity with each other, without having to say much or nothing at all.” Gomez designs clothing that makes her feel beautiful and comfortable as a trans woman, she says. In doing so, she hopes she makes her customers feel beautiful, too. Some of the other sellers that Depop highlighted include Michael Board II, a performance and visual artist who sells inclusive fashion at his eclectic shop @thekahlo; Finn Barrett, an artist who prints his drawings on T-shirts and sweatshirts and sells them via his shop @fnnngn; artist Xiah Perry of the store @hevviflo; Jade Laurice, a painter, poet, and entrepreneur who sells her poetry printed on clothing at her shop @pocalondon; and Naeeja, a writer and musician who sells vintage clothing both on Instagram and through their Depop shop @hoodornamence. “Growing up Black and queer, I had always felt undervalued and casted out. Fashion is where my confidence and sense of belonging stems from,” Michael Board II told Depop’s blog. Finn Barrett uses clothing as a means of protection. “Clothing is an extremely crucial safety net for someone like me,” he told Depop. “Personally, as a trans individual, clothing and having just the right fit is pivotal to my day to day struggle with dysphoria.”“Fashion allows me to channel my emotions and my inner self into a look,” Naeeja told R29. “Whenever I go out — and now that I am staying in — I wear something that represents how I’m feeling, or sometimes if I’m in a mood, how I want to feel. I love dressing myself up to get out of a funk and doing a photoshoot just for myself.” “I believe how members of the LGBTQIA+ fashion themselves can be a lifeline,” they continue. “For many, it’s the initial glimpse of what it would look and feel like to live out what’s in your soul. And sometimes, it may start small, with just one pair of heels, or one loose-fitting shirt that allows one to look in the mirror and see a side of themselves they aren’t familiar with but would like to get to know.” For Naeeja, fashion allowed them to also discover parts of themselves. “Even before I knew I was nonbinary, I began to dress in ways that I previously didn’t think I was allowed to, yet I began to create space for myself, for all of the facets of my identity.” In addition to amplifying the voices of the app’s queer community, whose interviews you can read in full on the Depop blog, it is also supporting organizations like The Trevor Project, The Audre Lorde Project, and the LGBTQ Freedom Fund now and beyond Pride Month.Like what you see?

Update: Gap is not going ahead with the Telfar collaboration “at this time.”Following the announcement of the forthcoming Kanye West x Gap line, social media was quick to ask about the future of the Telfar collaboration, which, according to Business of Fashion, was “postponed indefinitely” in March. According to a tweet by The Cut‘s fashion news writer Emilia Petrarca, who spoke to reps from Telfar, the brand never received a postponement fee for the collaboration, nor were they communicated with about the future of the collaboration or the Yeezy Gap line. In response, Gap provided Refinery29 with the following statement: “While we’ve chosen not to move forward with the Gap x Telfar partnership at this time, we’re making whole on our payment regardless and have only respect and appreciation for Telfar’s time and vision.” This story was originally published on January 17, 2020.Gap — one of America’s most ubiquitous stores — and Telfar, one of its most provocative designers, have announced a partnership that is arguably the most exciting collab of 2020. Telfar shared the news in an Instagram post yesterday, with a graphic that’s a hybrid of the two iconic logos. The announcement was celebrated during Paris Men’s Fashion Week at Gap’s multi-level store, which was turned into an after-hours club. The storefront windows were given the Telfar treatment, showcasing intimate images shot by artist Elliot Jerome Brown Jr from the Fall Winter 2020 show, which took place during Pitti Uomo in Florence last week. Inside, according to the brand, retail displays were encased in metal mesh, and merchandise tables became stages for performances by musicians such as Yves Tumor, SOPHIE, Hirakish, Hawa, CRYSTALLMESS, Sega Bodega, and Total Freedom. > View this post on Instagram> > LAST NIGHT GAPbyTELFAR> > A post shared by @ telfarglobal on Jan 17, 2020 at 3:32am PSTWith a shared philosophy of “accessibility, democracy and a wardrobe rooted in universal basics and affordable garments that can be worn in unique ways,” as stated by the press release, the two companies are the perfect partners to co-create a collection that “inspires freedom of expression and drives positive change.”Vogue reported that they will debut the product drops later this year. Founder and designer Telfar Clemens told the publication that his team met with Gap last year. The designer was inspired by the way the company caters to “regular people,” and said that he appreciates how it’s known for its “ubiquity” and “accessibility.” This makes sense considering his longtime dedication to designing genderless clothes, and the growing popularity of his unisex vegan leather bags that have an approachable price point.“Gap is an iconic American brand with a rich history rooted in embracing diversity and promoting creativity and innovation, and the Telfar brand is built on these same principles,” Gap’s Vice President of Adult Design, John Caruso, said in the press release. “From the moment we began talking with Telfar about the collaboration, we were captivated by his vision and the parallels between the brands, and we are excited to unveil a partnership built on these shared values.” The celebratory event also marked Gap’s first time having a presence at Paris Fashion Week Men’s.Regarding the new partnership, Clemens expressed in the statement, “It shouldn’t be a surprise that I’m obsessed with Gap — what I do is about the idea of ‘normal’ — and changing that — because that is when you change real life. Gap created the blueprint for my brand because the Gap person is literally everybody: every possible race, gender, rich, poor. I want to take that idea to the year 2020 — and to take my clothes outside of just fashion capitals and boutiques and actually make them available for everybody.” For Clemens, working with Gap is a dream come true, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for this collaboration.Like what you see?

Fashion has always had a way of taking our core wardrobe essentials — outerwear, underwear, and everything in between — and turning them into statement pieces. Consider the trusty trench coat, for example, which was originally created to shield soldiers from the elements but, over time, turned into one of the most distinctive utility apparel items a person could own. And don't get us started on how the functional bike short has morphed into a top streetwear trend that will not go away (even after its initial rise and fall in the '90s). It's no surprise, then, that the protective face coverings we've been advised (and in some cases, ordered) to wear outdoors to curb the spread of the coronavirus have quickly been embraced and beautified by the fashion world. "It just felt like there was a need [for a stylish face mask]," says Hillary Taymour, founder of the sustainable clothing brand Collina Strada. "I was wearing brightly colored masks walking over the bridge daily to the studio and it put a smile on everyone’s face. So why not bring that to the general public?" Taymour began producing non-medical face masks in mid-March, drawing on the crafty skills of model and friend Sasha Melnychuk to design something protective yet personal. The final product was a remarkable marriage of motifs featuring Collina Strada's signature ribbons — a fixture of the brand's runway shows — and the vibrant patterns of already available deadstock fabric. This kind of creative take on meeting consumer needs during the pandemic allows shoppers to adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's guidelines without losing touch with the familiarity of their personal style. Masks may still feel like an unusual addition to our daily routines because of the way they conceal the parts of ourselves that are normally exposed, but that doesn't mean our identities have to be hidden too. By opting for the right print to suit your own aesthetic and making a purchase you know will benefit those in need, wearing a face mask can become more than just our collective responsibility — it can be an entirely new form of self-expression. "With every purchase [of a Collina Strada mask], you are donating five masks to healthcare workers," Taymour says. "The design just brings a little sunshine during one of the most difficult times we have seen in this lifetime." Taymour was one of many designers to pivot to non-medical face mask production with the goal of giving back as the coronavirus crisis hit its devastating crescendo. Companies like Reformation and Sanctuary also reacted quickly by organizing local manufacturers to do the same using fabrics from their warehouses. New York-based label Alice+Olivia announced that it would donate 5,000 face masks to medical centers around the country while selling consumer-friendly options online. In addition to equipping customers with the coverings they need, founder Stacey Bendet pointed out a greater purpose of this initiative: "Let's show support for our community and the doctors, nurses, delivery workers, and first responders who are combatting this crisis on the front lines,” she said in a press release. The more non-medical face masks made available to the public, the less of a strain there will be on the medical-grade materials our heroes on the front lines require to protect themselves on the job. Ahead, we've rounded up a list of fashion brands that are enhancing the process of mask manufacturing with their unique brands of sartorial savoir-faire. Face coverings are a crucial way for us to keep one another safe when we're in public, and they aren't going anywhere. So go ahead and get comfortable with one that speaks to your own style, be that in the form of something upcycled, a badass camo print, delicate florals — even toile, if that's your thing. You do you, as long as you're doing it responsibly. COVID-19 has been declared a global pandemic. Go to the CDC website for the latest information on symptoms, prevention, and other resources.
