Featured in CultureMap and InnovationMap: “Houston fashionista makes statement with upcycled, sustainable online shopping site”

By: Natalie Harms, Editor of InnovationMap

When shopping online one day, Hannah Le saw a need for a platform that allowed transactions between upcycling fashion designers and shoppers looking for unique, sustainable pieces.

Le created RE.STATEMENT, an online shopping marketplace for upcycled clothing. Before RE.STATEMENT, designers were limited to Etsy, which is focused on handmade pieces, or Poshmark and Depop, which are dedicated to thrift finds. Upcycle fashion designers didn’t have their own, unique platform to sell on — and, likewise, shoppers were scattered across sites too.

“These marketplaces are really good for what they do,” Le says on this week’s episode of the Houston Innovators Podcast, “but, whenever I think of someone looking for something unique and sustainable, it’s hard for me to imagine finding that on these marketplaces.”
