Team Wear Forward
provides clothing as a service through an AI-powered circular fashion marketplace and virtual wardrobe where users can manage, share, buy, and source preloved, sustainable, upcycled, and refashioned clothes and other textiles and avail fashion and refashion services. It connects customers to informal waste workers and their products and services. It further connects textile waste donors to communities they can support for collection, management, and upcycling. Through Wear Forward, informal waste workers will undergo a Circular Fashion Training Program to upcycle textile wastes into high-quality products with a viable product-market fit. They will also be equipped to offer refashion services like repairs and alterations. Moreover, the informal waste workers can use the platform to continuously guide them on their skills training, designs, and livelihood through the program modules and resources tailor-made for them.
