Community Clothing to launch ecommerce site

Community Clothing, the social enterprise brand founded in 2016 by designer Patrick Grant, is set to launch its first transactional website this spring season.

Grant began the fashion brand with the aim of capitalising on factories’ spare capacity during seasonal lulls and provided extra work to fill the gaps.

The website will allow customers to purchase products from the range and will show the stories behind the company’s mission from the UK factories and suppliers.

The range offers clothing for both women and men ranging from T-shirts (£22) to outerwear (£129) with spring 18 seeing the introduction of shirt dresses and field jackets.

Collections have previously been available via the company’s eBay store and Selfridges.

Community Clothing CEO Lucy Clayton said: “The launch of the new site and webshop marks an important moment for us. We’ll be showcasing the people and the places behind the product, really bringing to life the stories behind Community Clothing. We’re selling direct to our customers, who know that every purchase helps support our mission to sustain and create skilled UK manufacturing jobs.”

The product range has grown from 17 styles to around 100 today, accumulating for more than 10,000 hours of labour in UK factories.
