The support system, which provides creatives with a platform to share, connect, create and drive change, was initially conceived for Vanessa’s final project, which is currently being displayed at the online Graduate Show 2020.
The idea is that anyone in the industry with an interest in sustainability, whether they are freelancers, workers, content creators, students, graduates or small and medium sized businesses, can come together to collaborate with like-minded people.
A prototype app has also been created which aims to combine all aspects of YVERT into one digital channel.
Vanessa, who is originally from Stuttgart, Germany and now lives in Brighton, said: “YVERT developed out of the frustration of not finding other creatives who want to work sustainable and use sustainable projects. I decided to create a space. The most important thing when it comes to sustainability in the fashion industry is that we work together to create change.
“The goal is to eventually launch an app that will have all those functions, so it’s almost like a combination between LinkedIn and Instagram for creatives in the fashion industry that want to work together sustainability.
