About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

the main problem SUSTA fashion is trying to solve is over consumption, focusing on fast fashion industry . low quality production with very fluctuating trends is the tool to force people to buy, which considered to be the main drive to SUSTA fashion to make the change.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

-offer the market sustainable, fashionable, practical, easy to make, unique fashion lines. which will start free people from buying more instead buy the better and what last longer instead of what looks more fashionable at that moment. -reform consumer trust, by offering open source library of video "make it yourself" , create the E-design shared economy methods and give the consumers the chance to design their own outfit.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

For example: sarah looked new hair band online,she found a one band could be wrapped in 3 ways , "oh that is a good deal"she said, she followed the channel and ordered the band, the channel (do it yourself), teach her how could she can recycle her own blouse. she started to try some stuff, and buy what she could not make it by herself. New website, E-design and E-buy by making your own designs, from recycled garment was the new trend, finally "I can do what I need" sarah commented, I will be special and my outfit is unique. one fast fashion store decided to buy SUSTA first line and implement the idea on it own waste garments.now recycled fashion is also fashionable and practical and became the new trend.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

The impact of this Idea will raise awareness about consumerism, minimize the waste from fast fashion industry. this project will reach consumers through all channels (social media, E-commerce, and word of mouth). this project is not only-profitable for production, it complete the damaged cycle and benefit the consumer, to regain their trust. On the long term, the consumer behavior and industry will develop to be more ethical and environmental- friendly.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

The fashion apparel industry has significantly evolved, particularly over the last 20 years. The changing dynamics of the fashion industry have forced retailers to desire low cost and flexibility in design, quality, and speed to market, key strategies to maintain a profitable position in the increasingly demanding market. I believe SUSTA will drive the market to a new era, we will try to change consumer behavior to more environmental-friendly behavior. Taking into consideration fashion industry profit take it to another stage any of profit (which is let the consumer design what they want).
Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

We will look forward one big grant, Start up the idea. after starting production, the financial analysis will be developed based on market recruitment. selling the products, Ads on the website, views from YouTube, and selling the lines to already successful industry will be the main sources for profits. the raw material will be collected from unused garment waste.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

so many research paper studied this issue, artical and website trying to spread awareness about fast fashion consumption. Through my research did not really find a practical solution slimier to SUSTA fashion. as far as my search engine can reach. :)
