Popcycle is bringing style and creative energy to the LaunchPad at Bird Library at a pop-up Thursday, October 28 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Meet co-founders Jackson Ensley ’22 (Martin J. Whitman School of Management) and Paul Hultgren who have curated the best student fashion brands in a campus retail pop-up, bringing exclusive clothing by student designers to campus. Visit the pop-up and see it all showcased that day in the LaunchPad.
“In the current e-commerce climate, young clothing brands tend to gravitate towards platforms like Instagram to start their businesses,” says Ensley. “Because of this, Instagram has quickly become oversaturated with young brands, often leaving talented designers trying to break through the crowd and get their products in-front of new eyes.”
This is where Popcycle comes in. Popcycle is the only campus marketplace designed from the ground up by college students, for college students. It provides a platform for young brands to market and sell their products to a new audience. This exposure is crucial for small brands who are trying to reach new markets, and it does it a fraction of the typical cost.
