Have you ever looked in your wardrobe and decided you have nothing to wear? Well thanks to a clever idea by two Stuartholme girls, those days may soon be over. As part of their Grade 10 Term 2 business assignment Tia and Olivia were required to write a business plan for a futuristic product of their own creation.
Their business plan was entered into the Business Educators’ Association of Queensland (BEAQ) ‘Plan Your Own Enterprise’ Competition. In 2013, Stuartholme won an Encouragement Award and this year Tia and Olivia continued Stuartholme’s success. On Tuesday 16 September the girls, their parents and their Enterprise Education teacher, Ms. Hopkins attended an award ceremony at CPA Australia’s offices in Brisbane, where they received an Encouragement Award for their achievements.
The girls designed a fashion app called 'Apparel Assist', which has three main functions. Users can upload pictures of personal clothing to their account within the app creating their 'wardrobe'. There is a search tab feature where you can insert your destination, event, date and time and your 'digital' stylist will take care of the rest. Your results will show the weather and outfit suggestions for your particular outing. Apparel Assist users are also afforded the opportunity to purchase clothes and accessories, to match another piece already in their wardrobe. The shop tab offers suggestions and allows you to access particular stores online to purchase your desired item.
Tia and Olivia were also excited to learn that a fellow Stuartholme girl and Tia’s sister, Celina was chosen in the top 5 for her ‘Lift off’ product business plan, narrowly missing out on an award! It is great to see Stuartholme’s entrepreneurs of the future acknowledged for their outstanding efforts in the business arena by such a prestigious organisation.
