About this Project:

The challenge that has been addressed in our project is homelessness. Homeless people don't get enough funds, so they really dont have much money to afford high quality brand clothes.

In NYC there is a lot of homeless people walking around the streets with their clothes not being in as good condition or quality as everyone else.

Our project helps people who are homeless or can't provide for themselves.

Our app allows the less fortunate people to purchase things from people who are donating their clothes for free.

This app addresses this issue because it gives people a chance to be able to buy clothing for a cheap price.

For our app design we used a website. Figma is a google slide-like website that allowed us to design our app in a digital cell phone. We wanted our app to be like an online store/closet.

We are looking forward to helping others who don't have much options for clothing from this app. With this, It will make people feel included by keeping up with with new trends.

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Lead Immersive Designer/ Content Lead at IBM — Emoti-Con Judge
Super cool idea - you are tackling two big issues: helping those in need and sustainability. Your app is well thought out - maybe add a map feature so people can find items near them. Or potentially add a filter for search on distance! Great job 🤩

👏 Senior Manager, Software Engineering at Dell — Emoti-Con Judge
The pursuit to enrich the lives of the less fortunate is certainly noble. This is conceptually a great idea, and I think the application design shows real thought and practicality to it. I am not sure how accessible this would be to the homeless in reality, but I do think the idea could be molded to allow for better access. Perhaps libraries or other public service buildings could host these applications for general public access. Keep those great ideas coming.

I love this idea! I truly appreciate the thought that went into this idea. Not only are you all looking to take care of those less fortunate, but you are also creating a way for them to be autonomous and shop in an environment that they may feel more comfortable than the traditional avenues of finding resources.

I love that you recognize the importance of clothing to some of the homeless population and your design ideas are innovative!
