high-end fashion sectors and creative industries including the likes of Balenciaga, Vogue, Urban Outfitters and Primark. See all past collaborations completed through Contact here.

In July 2022, Contact will open up the platform to become an even bigger home for all creators from graphic designers, and filmmakers to musicians and beyond.
