PayPal Looks To Relaunch Made Platform For Emerging Designers

Fashion platform, Made, is looking to revive its platform for the next generation of diverse designers by partnering with PayPal and IMG.

“PayPal is proud to work with IMG to relaunch MADE – a powerful platform for fostering diverse and emerging talent in the fashion industry,” said Amanda Miller, Vice President, Corporate Affairs, PayPal. “At this critical moment of recovery from the inequitable impacts of the pandemic, MADE x PayPal will contribute to empowering the next generation of diverse designers and building a more inclusive digital economy. Our support for MADE is an extension of PayPal’s commitment to advance racial equity and support underserved businesses and communities.”

Made first launched back in 2009 as a direct response to the economic crisis. It aimed to give emerging designers such as Telfar Clemens, Eckhaus Latta, Jonathan Simkhai and Hood By Air the resources, support and venue space to showcase their collections.

The Made Marketplace is expected to feature several fashion and streetwear designers such as Kingsley Gbadegesin of K.ngsley, Thermal and K$ace of Whensmokeclears and Shanel Campbell of Bed On Water, as well as small businesses and offer limited-edition products.

The relaunch of Made builds on PayPal’s long-term commitment to fight economic inequality and close the racial wealth gap. Through Made, the payments platform aims to elevate and support diverse designers and businesses while providing them with the tools they need to grow their brands.

To kick off the partnership, the trio will host a two-day experience between June 24th and 25th in Brooklyn, New York.
