Description

Massimo Menichinelli:

"Stitch Tomorrow is a youth-led fashion microfinance initiative from Philippine, aimed at facilitating South East Asian underprivileged teens with summer sessions in order to make them able to create their own fashion lines with clothes made of recycled materials. Stitch Tomorrow offers them education (in fashion and business), capital and resources, design, business and marketing consulting services, participation of the customers in the design and business process. Once these fashion designers can work independently, they gradually pay back Stitch Tomorrow and the interest is used for other teens the following summer."
