The faces behind UNV are King's College London students who met through Enactus, a society promoting social entrepreneurship. This shared passion for entrepreneurship and interest in sustainable fashion brought us together to use the power of entrepreneurial actions to make a positive impact and shape a better, more sustainable world.
"The desire to give our friends the opportunity to consume in a better way inspired us to create UNV - a social enterprise that is both environment friendly AND affordable."
UNV is all about sustainable fashion through the process of upcycling clothes waste. We strongly believe that the solution to the fast fashion industry is not producing in a sustainable way, but re-using what we already have. We emphasize the importance of a circular fashion economy and aim to give unwanted old clothes Une Nouvelle Vie - a new life - by upcycling them.
But what makes UNV special is the fact that it is made by students for students. Our core aims and values revolve around relationship and collaboration amongst students interested in sewing, designing, modelling and photography. We foster creativity, innovation and freedom of expression.
