Unfortunately this project was not successful.

The aim of my project is to launch my app which creates personalised clothing. With success I will use profit to give back to the community!

First of all I’d like to start by saying Thank You for taking time to read about why I’d like to raise this amount of money and what I wish to do with it.

My name is Yasmeen (age22) and I am a mother of a 6 month old amazing boy named Cruz. This is the happiest I’ve been in a long time as one of my dreams in life was to be a mum. Although I would’ve liked to fulfil my other dreams of success this was definitely not a regret and I am grateful. He pushes me to thrive in life and this has resulted to me finally going for it.. and not looking back.

Besides my dream of being a mum I’ve always known I’d want to be an entrepreneur from a very young age. I knew this from about 7 or 8 when I used to watch Dragons Den and Apprentice while all the other kids were watching Disney Channel. I knew when I was old enough I would create something the public would love and I would love.

So I’ve started this campaign so that you all can contribute and also be part of my journey on creating an app. It’s a new type of app of creating your own clothing. Being your own designer instead of these shops deciding how you should look. I’d like everyone to get to show personality through clothing. It will probably have to start off very basic as the app itself costs about 7.5k and then extra costs of making the clothing. So I will start off printing onto T-shirt’s, Jumpers, Hoodies, Vests... etc. Then as the business thrives I’d like to expand and make it more technical with embroidery, rips, diamanté’s, studs.. (you name it!) Overtime Id like to offer a range of other services such as unwanted clothes collection so we can recycle materials and give an incentive to customers to get money off when they do this. Also I’d like to then develop these materials into new pieces of clothing to then purchase on the app.

Im very passionate about this idea and I know there are websites that do similar however I feel like in this day and age we love the fast movement of apps. Just click, drag and purchase which will make life easier for them who would want to use it. Also mine will be a game changer to clothing designs. I have much more to offer!

In addition to this, starting this business would be a life-changing opportunity for me and my son as I’ve always wanted much more for him and I know I am capable of doing so for us. I know overtime if this is a success I’d definitely give back in everyway possible. Especially being a care leavers is like to help many young people that have been in my situation and felt lost in life and provide counselling and mentoring into gaining the correct qualifications or even just finding a career path. I’d like to also start soup kitchens and give out basic toiletries and clothing to those in need. There are many plans I have to help and give back to the community.. not even just the community but whoever I can help! Any size donation would be greatly appreciated. I ask kindly that you share this amongst your family and friends as well so that they too can be part of the start of something great!

Many thanks!
