The mission of Display Copy is to provide the best inspiration, curation, and selection of vintage items with which to dress, adorn protect and express yourself withour causing further damage to our planet
The biannual magazine doesn’t feature a single new fashion item. “The idea was to make used clothes desirable. Display Copy isn’t about promoting new products, it’s about loving what we already have and seeking out novelty and style in what already exists. We promote reuse by showcasing the thrifted, the found, the recycled, and the upcycled,” said Brynn Heminway, the editor of the magazine.
In their official website, the team stated that Display Copy is here because we believe it is our reponsinility to help to shape the future of fashion into one that is more circular. By purchasing new fashion items, we contribute to climate change, even if those items are considered sustainable. Simply put, buying vintage fashion is a way to disengage from the damaging global supply chain.
Choosing to wear vintage and pre-owned clothing activates a circular fashion economy, subsequently diverting waste from landfills.
