About this Project:

The challenge that our project addresses is fast fashion and how the overconsumption of clothing and the increasing prices of low quality clothes can lead to people not being able to afford decent clothes that they feel proud and good in.Your player is spawned into a city with no money, and opening dumpsters to collect clothes, food, or other necessities like money. You use those clothes to stitch together fashionable and designer clothes to eventually compete with other people. The reason that we made this app is because we want to make people understand the idea of fast fashion and how we are able to remake use clothes into new on fashion that are in trend.

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Data Administrator at CS4All — Emoti-Con Judge
I like the idea of informing and educating the public about clothing challenges by way of playing this game. Consider modifying the app so that people trying to find affordable/cheap/free clothes are able to do so in the real world!

👏 Senior Software Engineer at Catch — Emoti-Con Judge
I think you chose an important issue that doesn’t always get enough attention. To dig deeper, it might be helpful to include tips for combatting fast fashion in real life. For example, resources for finding second hand stores or textile recycling.

But, I really enjoyed playing your game! The visuals there and in your slides were great and I liked seeing how you came up with your designs through your inspiration and style guide. It's very impressive how much you got done!
