Infinitely is a sustainable clothing brand that seeks to take down the world of fast fashion. Founders Nimra Karamat ’23 and Ashley Cardenas ’23 create high-quality versatile pieces so their customers can truly invest in their clothing. Below is the third of their three reports.
Who We Are:
Infinitely is a sustainable fashion brand that seeks to take down the world of fast fashion. We offer affordable and high-quality clothing so that our customers can truly invest in their clothing. As two young women of color, we felt that sustainable fashion was either not accessible enough or falsely marketed as eco-friendly. Infinitely is here to change the game. We’ve implanted a lot of new changes and made immense progress so that we can meet all of our initial goals.
Hi, we’re Nimra ‘23 and Ashley ‘23! We co-founded Infinitely because we believe that sustainable clothing isn’t affordable or accessible enough. All of our products are made from 100% deadstock that is ethically sourced and is sustainably stitched by a local Black and woman-owned manufacturer.
For the last few months we’ve been brainstorming new ideas for designs and ways we can spread the word about Infinitely. We realized that we were missing a key component that every successful business has, expertise that sells. So, we’ve decided to dedicate the next 7 months to developing our expertise in the fashion industry, marketing, and communication outreach. We’re still competing in entrepreneurship competitions and recently won 2nd place in the
Connecticut College Competition woohoo!!
Ashley will study abroad in Madrid, Spain for Spring 2022 and will be focusing her efforts on developing expert marketing skills and how to utilize social media platforms for advertising. Nimra will be studying abroad in Amsterdam, Netherlands and focusing her efforts on developing new designs and gaining expert knowledge of the fashion industry.
We decided that this was the best way for us to expand Infinitely to be a major competitor in the fashion industry. We hope to build our expertise, find investors, and find ways to make Infinitely even more sustainable so that we can provide products that are fashion forward and of the highest quality for our customers.
Infinitely is currently under construction, stay tuned!
