Rebecca Morter, Founder of Lone Design Club
When LDC officially launched in May 2018, Rebecca quit her own brand to lead the company. Rebecca explains that one of the most rewarding parts of creating these niche pop-up spaces was giving a voice to these talented emerging brands.
LDC believes sustainability should be a given and LDC select brands based on their efforts and stories and not the core USP to a brand or to our brand: sustainability should be integral. We don’t need to give customers the options of what’s sustainable but prefer to show them cool and contemporary brands, each with a sustainable or ethical story, helping to make strides to support consumers to shop more consciously and to make it part of our DNA.
