Brands solve 'same dress' syndrome

Brands solve 'same dress' syndrome

The ultimate fashion taboo is attending an event to find someone else is wearing the same outfit. Brands such as Vakko and Harvey Nichols have recognised this need and have created a solution in their personal tracking system which tracks where pieces have been bought to eliminate two people buying for the same occasion. The store will open at what ever time and send a different dress to the event.

Cork makes a buoyant return

We often associate cork with wine. But the Portuguese company AHUA is using the material for what was one of its original purposes: buoyancy. The company makes and sells thin surfboards and handplanes (surfboards for hands) made of light and eco-friendly cork. The project was funded thanks to an entrepreneurship prize and crowd funding website Massivemov.
