The Modabound Mission
We intend to help users obtain “new” clothes on short notice, free of cost, from their friends, and provide a platform for them to enjoy viewing what other users are wearing and explore ideas for their own outfits. By allowing friends to have constant access to view each other’s closets, we facilitate the exchange of clothes amongst them while keeping track of what is being borrowed/lent so clothes don’t get lost. In addition to temporary swaps, ModaBound provides users with a simple way to re-sell their clothes rather then discarding them if they are still in good condition.
Modabound is currently a website (but will be complemented by an app shortly).
Co-founders, Carolina Garcia and Alexa Varsavsky, are two Columbia University alums who started working on Modabound in November 2011, 6 months before graduating.
Life at Modabound
Work hard party hard. We believe in getting stuff done and rewarding awesome work. We want to promote a creative environment which will enhance Modabound as a product, while at the same time keeping a strong work ethic and paying attention to important detail. And most of all, we want people to love what they do at Modabound!
