A new fashion tech startup called Nineteenth Amendment is aiming to combat the waste produced through fast fashion endeavors by creating a platform that enables designers to better connect with its consumers.
Through the platform designers can post designs, prior to them hitting the production lines. Those interested in the designs can order on pre-sale, receiving a discount for the exclusive collection. In return, designers get a better idea of how much of each garment to produce -- a valuable insight that offers designers with more than just reduced waste.
When using the Nineteenth Amendment's model, consumers can expect to receive their ordered goods in about six weeks, making for a convenient and ethical shopping experience.
