This breakout online fashion community is merging commerce with crowdsourcing.
Here’s what you need to know about Awaytomars, the game-changing, industry-disrupting online fashion community based in London: It’s a crowdsourcing platform that allows anyone, anywhere, to have a hand in making clothes. To start, create an account and upload a sketch of your design. The site’s fellow users provide feedback, share ideas on a communal digital mood board and tweak the original version. The ideas that receive the most community engagement go into production. The result is a globally designed collection with input from over 400 designers. “Fashion hasn’t had any major changes over the past 30 or 40 years,” says founder Alfredo Orobio. “We want to give young talent from all over the world the opportunity to design and experience the industry.” Awaytomars puts out two “co-created” collections a year. You can shop the latest one, inspired by raw materials like stone and metal, on awaytomars.com or dream big and propose an idea of your own.
Next up? Awaytomars is working with Google to develop a 3-D design tool to make the creative process more hands-on for its international user base. Although this tool is in the early stages, it’s safe to say that the future is (almost) here.

“I got you Bae.”
Cher is our favourite non-grown-up grown-up. (Check out her emoji-filled Twitter feed; it's the best.) James Corden obviously feels the same way, so he invited her onto The Late Late Show to sing her classic song “I Got You Babe” – with brand-new lyrics for the under-30 set.
With mentions of swiping on Tinder, sending nudes, and making things Facebook “offish," this may be the perfect millennial love song.
We’re working on a special sex and relationships edition to learn more about what really goes on in the bedrooms of modern Canadians!
We’re hoping you’ll take a few moments to (anonymously) fill out our survey.
When you complete this survey, you’ll find a link you can follow to be entered in a contest to win one of two prize packs: a Paco Rabanne Olympéa perfume set and Paco Rabanne Lady Million perfume set. (Value $250 each.) Even if you enter the contest, all answers are strictly confidential and will only be used in conjunction with those of the other respondents. Be sure to complete this survey in a safe, private place.
And she wasn't the only celeb feelin' herself on the 'gram this week.
