Drop Dead creates limited edition menswear, womenswear and collectibles, inspired by internet culture, life on the road and contemporary music and art.

And now the company has started supplying samples and seconds from its fashion ranges for sale through Emmaus’ second hand store at the charity’s headquarters in the Sipelia Works building - a former cutlery factory in Cadman Street.

Emmaus Sheffield is a working community with self-contained accommodation, training facilities and a workspace for previously homeless men and women aged 18 years and over.

It aims through to provide work to enable people to eventually become self supporting.

Emmaus’ retail manager, Charley Fedorenko, said: “Although we are best known for our fantastic range of vintage and second hand clothing it’s great to be able to add the Drop Dead brand our clothing selection.

“We receive quite regular donations of stock so it’s always worth coming to down to see what’s available - you might find a piece of designer fashion at an extremely competitive price.”
