An amazing fashion adventure crossing the border and time

A short summary of your project

I'm raising £2000 to start a business which aims to let people have full access to beautiful traditional clothes and styles, trigger their interest in another culture and boost cultural diversity. 

Who we are

We are a team of fashion lovers. We are people who love gorgeous traditional Chinese fashion-Hanfu and related accessories. As the team is women-centred, we have the strength to explore the beauty of people wearing amazing garments. 

What we are doinG

Every person should have full access to beautiful outfits.

No matter race, colour, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identification, national origin, familial status, age, or handicap, there should be no barriers to wearing beautiful outfits during your time in London. This is our goal. We aim to achieve our ambitions by providing services like personalized photoshoots, makeup services, hair styling, letting and selling Hanfu clothing as well as traditional accessories. 

 Who are beneficiaries?

Fashion lovers! Culture enthusiasts! Xenophile! And More! If you want to wear beautiful clothes, or are attracted by a different culture, or would like to create a great memory in the UK, we will be the right choice for you.

Future prospects

In the future, we want to have an experience studio in London. People can visit this place for a deeper experience of traditional garments and a different culture, like renting or purchasing Hanfu and accessories, doing traditional style and enjoying personalized photography in oriental scenes.

We also want to collaborate with boroughs, local communities, churches, and schools to promote niche cultures by proposing some workshops.

The business will donate 1% of every order's income to UK-based charity organisations. The focus of donations will be on supporting vulnerable groups and women's organisations.

Where will the money go?

Our minimum target of £500 will help us book our spaces for the showcasing in the Cultural Style Week Multicultural Fashion Finale which will be held on 27th May 2023.

£1000 will help us book our tables at comic cons that will be held on 21st May in Coventry and on 18th June in  Guildford.

£1500 will help us book a place at the MCM comic con that will be held from 26th to 28th May 2023 in London.

If we hit our target, we would really show up at the MCM comic con with great props and settings for people to take pictures at our vender.
