NB: I’M NOW DEACTIVATING MY SHOP ON VIDA TO CONCENTRATE ON OTHER PROJECTS.
After seeing my work online and on Instagram, VIDA asked me if I’d like to collaborate with them on some fashion apparel…
My designs, ‘fashion’, ‘collaboration’, ‘shop’, ‘sell’ – all in one email. It was certainly a HIGH FIVE moment.
VIDA’s story is that of the rich, interconnected world we live in — the story of contemporary life and mindful, global citizenship.VIDA
VIDA is a Google Ventures backed fashion ecommerce platform that brings together designers and makers around the world to create original, inspiring apparel in a socially conscious way.
VIDA gives its designers the chance to convert their design vision into products like scarves, tops and dresses. For every VIDA product made, the company offers literacy programs for the makers in Karachi, Pakistan. These makers have the opportunity to learn reading, writing and maths, which they may not have had the opportunity to do before. This platform is also an interesting model for manufacturing in a digital age, all made better by being socially conscious.
Anyway after a lovely chat with Connie, a member of the VIDA team, I set about creating my shop.
As a designer it was incredibly easy and their support is great. You literally send them your files and they do the hard work of setting up your page. If you have a question, fire it over to them and you’ll get a response in 24 hours.
‘Georgie St Clair’ is now in Production
The great news, at the time of writing this post, is one of my designs has already gone into production- the Splashed Rose design. Cue another HIGH FIVE moment.
There’s still time to purchase one of my first four designs. As mentioned, the Splashed Rose scarf is definitely going to be produced. With the other 3 designs, there is 9 days left to pre-order. I have to make a minimum of 5 pre-orders of each design for it to go into production.
Pop over to my Shop Vida page and use the coupon code VOICES to get 25% off (that’s just $30 for each scarf). As an added incentive VIDA ships internationally, for only $5. Remember pre-orders are only available for another 9 days.
I can’t wait to see how it goes and how the designs look when they go into production.
I leave you with a video to whet your appetite for this exciting new platform
Have an inspired day
